Kathmandu: The South Asian Olympic Council (SAOC) is set to meet on March 2 to decide the proposal for rescheduling date for the 13th South Asian Games. 

Earlier, the National Sports Council had sent a proposal to the Nepal Olympic Committee requesting for SAG's postponement citing infrastructure construction. 

The Committee has received the postponement proposal and the SAOC will meet in Thailand on March 2 to discuss the matter, said Jeevan Ram Shrestha, President of the NOC and SAOC. 

"It requires consensus of all member states on this matter. So the subject will be concluded by a meeting discussion." The SAOC's meeting will be held on the occasion of the special general assembly of the Asian Olympic Committee to be held in Bangkok in the first week of March. The SAG is scheduled to take place in Nepal on March 9-18. RSS
