Jual sees conspiracy in Dutee’s exclusion, writes to Union Sports Ministry

Union Tribal Affairs minister Jual Oram 
Bhubaneswar: Terming the sprinter Dutee Chand`s
exclusion from the Indian team for the Commonwealth Games as ‘unfortunate,’
Union Tribal Affairs minister Jual Oram has written a letter to Union Sports
Minister Sarbananda Sonowal seeking his intervention in the issue. 

“The way Athletics Federation of India excluded
her from the team after selecting her, it is most unfortunate,” Oram has stated
in his letter further alleging that she was victim of a conspiracy by Athletics
Federation of India (AFI) and other sports bodies.

“Instead of providing encouragement and
protection, the internal politics and partial attitude of some sports
organisations could ruin the future of brilliant athletes in the country,” Oram
“Despite being poor, Dutee has brought laurels
to the country and earned international name and fame for her exceptional hard
work and dedication to the sports. She written to different sports bodies, organisations
and eminent people seeking their intervention into the matter and provide
justice to her. Her exclusion seems to be the outcome of the conspiracy hatched
by AFI,” Oram stated.
The Union Minister too has requested the sports
minister to order a high level enquiry into the matter and take strong action
against the officials involved in such crimes, besides urging the Union Sports
Minister to help Dutee participate in the Commonwealth Games and other future
sports events.
