Aditi Ashok Controversy
On September 10, 2019, Aditi Ashok was outdated from the list of winners to acquire the prize of the Arjuna Award. This happened due to miscommunication between the Board of Directors of Golf Sports.
Champika Sayal, the Secretary-General of WGAI, said that “We were shocked to know that Aditi Ashok’s name was not part of the Arjuna Awards list.”
Speaking for Aditi’s loss of not receiving the award at the event of Indian Golf Union, she further stated that,
“They are not doing anything and at the same time, they are not willing to give the charge. The fact is today a deserving player has not won the Arjuna award and that’s a massive loss. Last year after the Olympics it was a given that Aditi’s name would be there.”
The Director-General Major Bibhuti Bhushan a retired golfer, gave clarification on the issue of not taking the name of Aditi on the list. According to him, she was not nominated on the list due to not filling out the paperwork and signing the form for receiving the award.
For this clarification, he gave a statement that “If the player does not sign the form we cannot do anything. Last time she signed and her nomination was sent by us.”
He further stated that “The mail has been delivered to her this time. Maybe she was disheartened the last time she didn’t sign it.”
Hence, she was also nominated with SSP Chawrasia in 2017 by Indian Golf Union
