Earlier today, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said she is looking forward to greater participation by the youth to mark the occasion.

The TMC supremo tweeted, "I want to extend my heartfelt wishes on #KhelaHobeDibas. After the exemplary success of the event last year, we look forward to greater participation by the youth today.Let this day uphold the zeal of our young citizens, who are the most credible harbingers of progress!"

Banerjee had last year announced that August 16 would be observed as 'Khela Hobe Dibas'.

It was announced to promote sports and as a mark of respect to 16 people who died in a stampede during a football match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata in 1980.
