The fresh dates for the 34th National Games, postponed five times in the past, are likely to be announced in a fortnight's time, the organisers said today.

"Our infrastructure is ready and we are expecting announcement of fresh dates by the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), which had postponed the games due to the impending assembly elections in Jharkhand, within a fortnight," Games organising secretary S M Hashmi told reporters here.

Hashmi said the IOA was satisfied with the infrastructure and preparation for the Games.

The IOA had last week postponed the Games, earlier scheduled for November 21 to December 5, citing the impending Assembly elections in the state.
