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.
