He said that sports played an important role in the overall development of human’s life. Zeliang said that a good education system was not only based on the development of the mind but was equally focused on the development of the physical body too.
He, therefore, urged the youngsters to make sports an integral part of one’s life. 
Zeliang hoped that the participants would display the highest standard of discipline and sportsmanship and that the Olympics would be a starting point to strengthen unity among the people. 
He encouraged the Zeme people from Nagaland, Manipur and Assam to stand in unison with one voice so as to reunite the fragmented organizations of the Zeliang people in the three states.
Later, the olympic was officially declared open by the special guest. Football opening match was played between Nzauna and Beisampuilwa.
