Boxer MC Mary Kom, who won a bronze at the London Olympics, said it would be difficult for her to compete without knowing the fate of Indian sports.
"I do not know much about this (suspension). I don't have a good feeling about this. I will not be able to give my 100% without the Indian flag," said Mary Kom, suggesting India's possible exclusion from the major sporting events.
Veteran tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi had this to say: "So I got banned, now the IOA gets banned, they says things like these normally happen in three's.. Wonder what's next!!"
Former Indian cricekter Bishan Singh Bedi asked on his twitter page: "What is worse -IOA, IOC or IPL?! Please come forward with constructive response. Remember the sportspersons' involvement is strictly at stake. Thanks."
With the suspension, India is now in a dubious list that includes Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan.
