According to a report in media, Paes, who arrived at Rio de Janeiro on 4 August, currently has no room to stay in the Games Village. Reportedly, he had to stay in Chef De Mission Rakesh Gupta’s room for the practice session.
Paes is obviously upset with the situation.
“I am slightly disappointed that having played six Olympics for India, I haven’t been given a place to stay. I was playing a tournament in New York and took the first flight on its completion. The match got over at 8 and took a 10.45 flight to Rio,” he told media.
India’s non-playing captain and coach Zeeshan Ali also bemoaned the state of affairs at the Games Village.
A few days ago, the Indian hockey team was complaining about the lack of proper facilities such as enough number of chairs and television sets in the Games Village.
