Another “slip of tongue” by Vijay Goel
New Delhi: Sports Minister Vijay Goel does it again. This time after PM Narendra Modi’s congratulatory meeting with Rio Olympics medal winners for their stellar performance.
Vijay Goel briefed the media after the meeting on Sunday.
“PM Modi today met with Khel Ratna, Dhyaanchand and Dronacharya awardees. The sports persons also included our two Rio gold medalists PV Sindhu and Sakshi Malik,” Mr Goel was heard saying on camera.
Later Mr Goel explained it as a “slip of tongue”, but his statement went viral on Twitter – accompanied by jokes and comments.
Mr Goel is no stranger to these types of comments. Earlier he misspelled names to confuse athletes and almost got his accreditation cancelled for alleged rude behaviour during Rio Olympics.
