Sports minister complicated tennis row further: IOA


New Delhi/Kolkata /Bangalore, June 20 (ANI): The acting president of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), Vijay Kumar Malhotra, has said in New Delhi that sports minister Ajay Maken s suggestion of sending more than one tennis doubles team to the Olympic games has further complicated the Mahesh Bhupathi Leander Paes selection row. With Maken declaring that team selection was AITA s prerogative, thereby washing his hands of the matter, Malhotra said that this was the stand the minister should have taken all along. He added that in his opinion, it was better that one strong team be sent to London for the Olympics, instead of two weak ones that would hurt India s medal prospects.
