After setting stringent rules for the Incheon-bound Indian contingent, the ministry has ignored them when it came to choosing its own delegation.

As per Incheon accreditation, secretary sports Ajit Sharan has changed his designation to sports minister while joint secretary sports Onkarmal Kedia has got his accreditation as a member of the National Olympic Committee (read IOA). Sharan has also got accreditation for his wife — Neelam Sharan.

Other officials include SAI officials G Kishore and SS Roy (as NOC guests), SAI executive director Sudhir Setia (as NOC guest) and SAI director general Jiji Thomson (as NOC member). Ministry’s SPS Tomar accredited himself as IOA’s headquarter staff.
