Imphal: Assam Rifles has launched its women Polo team in presence of overnor Anusuiya Uikey at Haflong Auditorium, IGAR (South), Mantripukhri, Imphal East, on Monday.

The governor hails Manipur as a place renowned for its rich cultural heritage and prowess in the field of sports, often known as powerhouse of sports in India. Manipuri Polo, also known as Sagol Kangjei, holds a significant place in the history of the country.
