By Peter Gill Islamabad: The participant wrestlers of the Rustam-e Pakistan Dangal took out a Tonga rally through the walled Lahore city roads on Thursday.
The wrestlers were wearing traditional colourful dresses, sitting on decorated horse driven carts (Tongas), and the rally was aimed at to motivate the people to come in the stadium to support the wrestlers.
The Punjab Sports Board has organised the Dangal in an effort to revive the lost glory of the traditional game of the province. The major title bout will be between Bhola Bhala Pehalwan and Nadir Khan Pehalwan while as many as 10 other fights will also be held in the Dangal to commence at the Punjab Stadium at 5.00 pm. Provincial Minister Sports Dr. Tanvirul Islam will be the chief guest of the Dangal who will give away the prizes to the winners.
