The 6th Gallo India series will be held from January 19 to January 31 in four cities namely Chennai, Madurai, Trichy and Coimbatore. Both the central and state governments consider this series as a very important series.
Gallo India Games are ongoing since 2018. “Vlayadu India” is the Tamil meaning of ‘Kelo India’. The series was launched to encourage the youth to participate more in sports and to give them a national spotlight and prominence.
“Sports should be at the center of youth’s life. Sports can develop the personality of the youth. We are not starting this series just to win medals. We are starting Kelo India to make sports a great movement.”
These are the words PM Modi spoke at the inaugural event of the 1st Gallo India Series in Delhi in 2018.
The Galo India series has been held so far in 5 states like Delhi, Maharashtra, Assam, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh. For the first time this series will be held in South India. It is the current practice of the central government to host all important sports matches at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Gujarat. National sports competitions, IPL, World Cup are no exception to this.
