The Paralympic Committee of India (PCI) left one of their athletes Kanchanmala Pande, who is completely blind, with no option but to beg in Berlin, where she was participating in the Para Swimming Championships, after the government money sanctioned for their tour did not reach them.

The incident is now drawing flak on social media and India’s first Olympic Gold Medalist Abhinav Bindra has also expressed his anger on the issue on micro blogging site.

He also tagged Prime Minister Narendera Modi and Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Vijay Goel with a caption on it, “This is  UNACCEPTABLE.People must be held accountable.

This is what he tweeted :

This is what our Sports Minister Vijay Goel said after the tweet :

“I never thought I would face such problems. I had to take a loan of Rs 5 lakh so that I could participate in the tournament,” Kanchanmala, who is also an assistant with the Reserve Bank of India in Nagpur, told Mail Today. “I had to qualify for the World Championships and I don’t know why PCI didn’t understand its importance.”

“I was not given any official confirmation if I will receive a reimbursement for the expense I bore. I had to pay around Rs 70,000 (£844) for the hotel and more than Rs 40,000 (£482) for food,” she added.
