National Sports Awards 2020: Increase in Numbers at the Expense of Legacy?

National Sports Awards 2020 saw 60 sportspersons receive the highest sporting honours in the country, the highest ever in a single year.

Inevitably, questions have been raised about the omission of some candidates and the process of selection itself. In conversation on Newsclick, Leslie Xavier, Jaydeep Basu and Vaibhav Raghunandan discuss the systemic failures of the selection process and the dark hole it may well lead to soon.
