Olympic bronze medalist Saina Nehwal’s father Harvir Singh Nehwal’s name has been removed from the list of Indian Commonwealth Games, after which Saina has expressed her displeasure. The Indian Sports Ministry placed the name of PV Sindhu’s mother Vijaya and Saira’s father Harvir on the list of the Indian team by their expenditure in the Gold Coast. Saina said via Twitter that it is surprising that when we walked from India to participate in the Commonwealth Games 2018, my father was accepted as a team officer and for this, I paid the full amount, but like Only when we reached the game village, his name was made out of the list of sports officials, and he could not live with me.

Saina wrote on his twitter handle that he could not see me. What kind of cooperation is this? As always, I wanted to support him during my bouts, but I do not understand why I was not told about it earlier that he can never enter. My father was approved as the team official when I started from CWG 2018 and now I am Surprised to see, I paid the whole amount for expenses but when we came to the games village, officials told me that his name was cut from team official category and he can’t even stay with me,”

After this, former veteran Indian shooter and Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra made a tweet in response to Saina’s tweet, “I believe that as a member of the Olympic Athletic Committee you will be fully aware of the Accreditation Protocol. Best wishes to you for Commonwealth Games. ‘ Saina immediately rebranded this tweet of Bindra and then most of the fans started asking for answers from Bindra that there were such rules, then why was not Saina told earlier and why the expenses were paid?
