West Bengal Governor La Ganesha has come under fire on social media after a video of India Football Team and Bengaluru FC captain Sunil Chhetri being ‘pushed away’ during an award ceremony went viral. This incident happened after the 2022 Durand Cup final.
Chhetri was pushed by the Governor of West Bengal to show his face on camera
Bengaluru FC won the Durand Cup title for the first time by defeating Mumbai City 2-1 in the final at the Yuva Bharati Krirangan or Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on 18 September. A video of La Ganeshan showing Chhetri on the shoulder while handing over the trophy at the awards ceremony went viral. La Ganeshan is understood to have done so because he is not coming right on camera. Initially, Udyat Chhetri raised two hands to take the trophy and then moved away, only touching the trophy with one hand.
