The northeastern state also clinched 76 silver and 77 bronze while Assam was a close second with 201 medals (81 gold, 60 silver and 60 bronze) in the event, which competed among the eight states of the country’s northeast region from November 10.

Arunachal Pradesh ended at third place while Meghalaya secured fourth position with 149 medals (36 gold, 35 silver, 78 bronze), a much better show than their sixth-place finish with 39 medals in the first edition.
