Nepal Army versus People's Army

I really have not reached an opinion on the whole PLA participation in the National Games. Here is an article about the whole controversy. Perhaps it begs the question what is the criteria for participation? Why are the departmental teams (Army, Police and APF) participating in the National Games and not other clubs? Why are athletes playing for their region, instead of their Ethnic clan, School, Local Gym/Club, District...?

Nonetheless all this should have been sorted out weeks ago. Did the PLA request to participate come too late or did NSC and the Ministry of Youth and Sports drag their feet on the issue? I personally do not have the facts.

Edit: Here is The Himalayan Times thoughts on the issue.
