Harvir Singh is an accredited Extra Official!

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has come up with a response to Olympic bronze medalist Saina Nehwal's outburst at Commonwealth Games officials. "As stated in the CDM Manual of Gold Coast 2018 CWG and repeatedly conveyed to BAI, the payment for accreditation of Extra Official does not include bed in the Games Village", IOA tweeted.

A copy of the warning will also be sent to India's chef de mission along with a warning to ensure there's no further infractions by the Indian team.

Abhinav tweeted: "Am sure as a member of the @olympics Athletes committee you are well aware of accreditation protocols".

President Ram Nath Kovind has extended his best wishes to the contingent.

A day after Saina Nehwal complained about her father Harvir Singh's name being missing from the team official category short-listed for accommodation in the 2018 Commonwealth Games Village, the Indian star shuttler could finally breathe a sigh of relief.

According to sources Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is in constant touch with Nehwal to sort things out in Gold Coast.

Saina's father Harvir and PV Sindhu's mother Vijaya are among the 15 individuals who, despite being cleared to be part of the Indian contingent, are not funded by the government for their travel, stay and other expenses.
