Commemorating the 50 years golden jubilee, Phokhungri Area Sports Organization (PASO) organized the first ever swimming competition at Shelloi Lake (LUTSAM) on January 11 hosted by Phokhungri village under Phek district. The event was witnessed by overwhelming crowd of more than thousand people. 

The programme for swimming competition was graced by NPP president Nagaland state, Dr. Andrew Ahoto Sema as the special guest. Addressing the gathering, he emphasized that the present youth should take utmost cognition about sports, skills and true leadership with integrity, then only one can see true development in future to come. 

He also reminded that the road has become deplorable and pathetic compared to when he visited last 17 years back.  He maintained that development should not have any hue or bias approach, but should reach out to every nook and corner irrespective of areas which may fall under ruling or opposition party. “Development should be the prime focus in every leader’s mind and it should stand above personal interest”, he added.

The one week sports programme included various activities such as football, volleyball, badminton, athletics etc for both men and women under the theme “One Team, One Dream”. 

The organizing committee was headed by Ashelo as the president and Tvusetsu Thuviri as vice president of the PASO.
