Munda vows to hold games as he completes 100 days

Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Monday renewed his pledge that the 34th National Games would not be postponed any more.

"I pledge that the Games will be held as scheduled," Munda told newsmen here on the occasion of his 100 days in office.
