They then headed to the city's badminton academy to meet well-wishers. However, CWG silver medalist, Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa, were not part of this welcome.

"This is something I have gotten used to. It was evident that we wouldn't be called there. Things have become so bitter that perhaps, even if we were invited, we wouldn't have gone."
