In a letter to Indian Chef-de-Mission Rakesh Gupta, Sarah Peterson, who is Continental Manager for Rio 2016 Organising Committee, said “We have multiple reports of your minister trying to enter accredited areas at venues with unaccredited individuals. And when staff tried to explain that this is not allowed, the people with the Minister have become aggressive and rude and sometimes push past our staff. And because of this minister’s accreditation could be cancelled. ”

Reacting to this the sports minister wrote on twitter that there is some misunderstanding and we have followed all the protocols.

The Sports Minister is currently in Rio de Janeiro to cheer the Indian contingent.
