New Delhi: Sports Minister Ajay Maken on Monday questioned the All India Tennis Association's decision to pair feuding former partners Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi for the Olympics, asking why just one team is being insisted upon for the event where the country can send two.
"We can send 2 teams, why send 1? Hidden question is on who should pair Sania? Why disturb victorious Grand Slam mixed double pair?" asked Maken in his latest post on social networking site Twitter.
The estranged duo of Paes and Bhupathi have been declared AITA's picks for the Olympics even though the latter has made it clear in no uncertain terms that he was not willing to team up with his former partner.
