The Indian shooting dirty mudslinging has started. The ugly war between governing body for the sport in country NRAI vs Pistol Coach Jaspal Rana vs Manu Bhaker is in open.

After tall claims made by the NRAI, 15 member Indian shooting team return not only empty handed but also with the entire reputation in shreds. Now the ex-pistol coach Jaspal Rana has broken his silence & accused NRAI & Manu Bhaker for the disastrous show.

They need to find a scapegoat after what happened in Tokyo. But I am not someone who will take this lying down. They are passing the buck to me for Manu Bhaker’s failure. I want to know what were the coaches doing in Tokyo? I was not there,” declared Jaspal Rana in the interview to The Telegraph.

“What happened in Zagreb (Croatia) from May onwards where the shooters had a camp? Nobody is asking that. I was in Zagreb for a month. I had told the association to have a camp at a place where the weather would be similar to Tokyo in July-August. The weather in Zagreb was pleasant. Nobody bothered to listen to me.

Earlier Manu Bhaker had blamed Jaspal Rana for bringing in lot of negativity before her Olympic campaign.

“He was never there for me. I had no other coach then, whenever I was looking for someone to help me, he was there for somebody but not me. When I told that to he him, he said he did not have the accreditation card, but he was there with somebody else but not me”, declared Bhaker.

Tokyo Olympics: Jaspal Rana slams NRAI & Manu Bhaker for disaster in Shooting at Olympics, ask ‘why was Manu given go ahead to participate in 3 events’

Jaspal Rana vs NRAI va Manu Bhaker – Indian Shooting Dirty Mudslinging: Rana has further claimed in the interview that the entire issue between him & Bhaker was related to her selection for the 25M Pistol event.

Rana said the entire episode started when he asked inclusion of Chinki Yadav in the team for 25M pistol event. Rana declared that Chinki earned a quota place for India during the Shooting World Cup and she should have been in the team for Tokyo Olympics – but his recommendation did not go down well with NRAI & Manu Bhaker.

I advocated for Chinki’s inclusion which the powers-that-be did not like. They decided Manu and Rahi Sarnobat would participate in the 25m pistol. Chinky had better scores still missed the bus.”

Why on earth was Manu allowed to participate in three events (10m pistol, 10m pistol mixed, and 25m pistol)? Even shooters of the caliber of Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Abhinav Bindra, or Gagan Narang did not participate in three events. And you throw a kid into the cauldron. Manu is just 19 and she just buckled under pressure. She was too preoccupied with other things like posting pictures on social media.” said Jaspal Rana in the interview to The Telegraph.

Tokyo Olympics: Jaspal Rana slams NRAI & Manu Bhaker for disaster in Shooting at Olympics, ask ‘why was Manu given go ahead to participate in 3 events’

Jaspal Rana vs NRAI va Manu Bhaker – Indian Shooting Dirty Mudslinging: Both NRAI president Raninder Singh and Manu have blamed Jaspal for the pistol shooters’ abysmal performance and Jaspal thinks the 19-year-old is being manipulated.

That’s the feeling I get. She is a kid and is being used to malign me. I have built this pistol squad from the junior level. I am angry that everything has fallen apart. Even when we were leaving for Croatia I was told I would be traveling to Tokyo. In Amsterdam, from where the shooters took the flight to Tokyo, I came to know I am not accompanying them. I felt bad when I had to break the news to Abhishek (Verma). He was expecting me at the shooting range.” continued Jaspal.
