India's junior pistol shooting coach Jaspal Rana has revealed that Manu Bhaker was not responsible for the controversial Tweet that surfaced on her Twitter handle last month. The tweet was aimed at the Rs 2 crore prize money promised by the state government for her gold medal at the Youth Olympics.
Ever since the young Manu
The tweet was in reference to the Rs 2 crore prize money that was promised by the state government after she clinched a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) last year. Vij had announced the award in his October 2018 via a tweet, but Manu had not received the money at the time her tweet was posted. Now, in an exclusive interview with TOI,
"I know that's not Manu's comment, and the person who did that should take responsibility. Manu doesn't handle her Twitter account. That's not good for Manu, for the sport. It's really sad and I feel whatever words were used were not right. That's wrong. She is still young and there's a long way to go for her," Rana told TOI reporters.
Haryana’s sports minister Anil Vij took offense at the nature of the tweet as he believed that the words used in it were extremely insensitive.
"She should have first spoken to the sports department rather than airing her issue in the public domain. The language she used in her tweet is aimed at tarnishing the image of the state and it is in bad taste," the minister had said earlier.
