Badminton News : HS Prannoy’s name recommended for Arjuna Award by Gopichand

Indian shuttler HS Prannoy has been recommended for the Arjuna award by chief national badminton coach Pullela Gopichand after the Badminton Association of India ignored him for a second successive year due to disciplinary issues. On June 2, BAI had recommended Satwiksairaj Rankireddy, Chirag Shetty and Sameer Verma for Arjuna award, leaving out Prannoy which prompted the shuttler to express his displeasure on Twitter. It has emerged now that Prannoy’s name was recommended by Gopichand on June 3 in his capacity as a Khel Ratna award recipient. On Friday, Prannoy was served a show-cause notice asking him to respond for his outburst against BAI within 15 days.
