Earlier on Monday evening, the organisers of Meghalaya Games 2022 had to face criticism across social media platforms for “poor arrangement” for athletes.
Soon after pictures and videos of “poor arrangements” for athletes participating in the Meghalaya Games 2022 went viral in the social media, chief minister Conrad Sangma directed the concerned officials to take immediate action on the matter.
“Saw the pictures of arrangements made for accommodation of our sportsperson in Shillong. Not acceptable at all. Have asked the officials to immediately take action and rectify,” said Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma.
Athletes and their support staff, who are taking part in the Meghalaya Games 2022, took to social media to highlight the ‘pathetic’ conditions of the venues.
Pictures and videos shared by the athletes and their support staff, taking part in Meghalaya Games 2022, soon went viral in the social media, painting a very sorry picture of the arrangements.
