Lovlina Borgohain puts harassment allegations
“Today, I am saying this with extreme sadness that I’m being harassed. Every time they replace my coaches who helped for bringing medals in Olympics. They replace my coahces every time and harass me in my training and games. One of these coaches is Sandhya Gurung, who is also a Dronacharya awardee,” she wrote.
“Both of my coaches have to plead too much to be included for the training in the camp. I have to go through too many problems for my training and let alone the mental harassment during training.”
“One of my coach, Sandhya Gurung, is outside Commonwealth village and he is being denied entry. My training process have also been stopped 8 days prior to games while my another coach has been sent back to India.”
“Despite all my requests, this has happened and it is like a mental harassment for me. I don’t understand how to focus on the game.”
“This is the reason that my last World Championship also did not go well and I don’t wanna ruin my CWG due to all this politics. I hope that I get a medal after breaking this politics. Jai Hind,” she concluded.
