Bhopal: Former hockey Olympian, Aslam
Sher Khan said here today that the invitation he received from
the Madhya Pradesh government to attend a function at the
Chief Minister`s residence where former players were
honoured had not come on time.

Aslam, who is now also a Congress leader told PTI that
someone from the Madhya Pradesh Sports Department had rang him
up around 1600 hours yesterday asking him to come to the
function in the night.

"I do not think that this is the proper way to invite
anyone for a function," he said.

Aslam said that the phone call had come to him when he
was in his village about 75 km from here.

The former Olympian said that normally he stays in New
Delhi and had he been there, it would have been impossible for
him to come to Bhopal in such a short time.
