New Delhi: Ahead of the beginning of the Ultimate Kho Kho (UKK), Sudhanshu Mittal, the president of the Kho Kho Federation of India addressed the Media. While addressing the reporters, Mr Mittal said the Indian game has now attained its presence across the world.

”With Ultimate Kho Kho, the sport will touch new heights. We will make sure that our own sport gets love and recognition in the world,” added Mittal.

Notably, everyone has played Kho Kho during their Lifetime. In the last five years, the game of Kho Kho has undergone a sea change.

“The Government of India has been very kind and considerate to include the Kho Kho in the priority list of sports for Jobs under sports quota. It has also been included in the All India Police Sports Control Board (AIPSCB) sports curriculum. This will provide the opportunity to the poor and deprived young Kho Kho players of our Villages to be recruited in the CAPFs and police organisations in India, Mittal said.
