H.S. Prannoy has apologised to the Badminton Association of India (BAI) for his remarks earlier in the month. Prannoy had slammed the BAI after it had ignored him for the National Sports Awards. The General Secretary of Badminton Association of India Ajay Singhania said and I quote It was unfortunate to witness something like this but Prannoy had reached out to us and based on his submission, we hope going forward players will reach out to the federation if they have any concerns. The BAI had issued a show-cause notice to Prannoy for his remarks and given him 15 days to respond. Earlier in the month, it had recommended doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty and men's singles player Sameer Verma for the Arjuna Award.
