Vijay Goel issued a statement saying, “Rio Olympics gold medallists PV Sindhu & Sakshi Malik met PM Modi today,” at a meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and National Sports Awardees on Sunday.

This immediately led to a series of tweets trolling the Union Sports Minister, which prompted him to react and say that people shouldn't make an issue out of a “slip of tongue” and that such things can happen at times.

Vijay Goel had earlier received flak for spelling Dipa Karmakar as "Dipa Karmanakar".
