  4. Well this pre world cup is taking a great step towards the World Cup.That is going to held in next year 2015.But many things need to be in mind.Mostly about rescue department and transport services.Every year,Foreigners and other visitors have many complaints from Government services for paragliding.This is making a bad effect on our tourism Department .But next year ,hoping well from Government.After all this is a great opportunity or must say a great pride for state Government.
