Saina Nehwal disappointed

 

 

Olympic Bronze-medallist Saina Nehwal has been left disappointed after the Sports Ministry decided to reject her application for the prestigious Padma Bhushan award this year, citing norms.

Badminton Association of India had recommended Saina’s name for the award to the Sports Ministry in August last year but the ministry picked two-time Olympic medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar as it felt he is a more deserving candidate. Saina said, she felt bad about it as Sports Ministry did not send her name to the Home Ministry, while Sushil Kumar’s name was sent as a special case.
