Bengal Gov Pushes Sunil Chhetri To Pose With Durand Cup Trophy For Photograph

Bengaluru FC, which defeated Mumbai City FC 2-1 in the finals to win the Durand Cup 2022 trophy, made history on Sunday. Sunil Chhetri is the captain of both Bengaluru FC and the Indian national football team.

But West Bengal Governor La Ganesan Iyer moved the achievement, Chettri’s achievements, and the great footballer himself aside for a picture.

On social media, a video of the incident during the post-match presentation went viral, with many labeling Iyer’s move as “high-handed” and “disgraceful.”

Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer for India, called the act “disgraceful.””

Former batter Robin Uthappa joined him in saying, “That’s simply all sorts of wrong!! Sunil Chhetri, we apologize; you deserve so much better than this!”

The West Bengal Governor was not the only one eager to avoid having anyone stand in their way of the cameras, as other people were also made aware by social media users. The state minister for sports, Aroop Biswas, was also observed pushing a player aside for a better shot.

The incidents have led some social media users to advise athletes to treat politicians the same way Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting treated Sharad Pawar, the then-president of the BCCI and leader of the NCP.
