Additional information

Since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, all India's gold medallists, except KHUMUKCHAM, have recieved the Arjuna Award. "I would say it's a conspiracy against me. Some people don't want me to get the Arjuna Award. This time I had more points than many others, but still I wasn't considered. Since the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, I have been tested for doping 15 times and I have always come out clean. I have never skipped important championships. So, why I haven't been considered?" She was later added to the list of recommendations in August 2017. (, 5 Aug 2017; MANIPURGI THOUDOK WATHOK PAO Faccebook, 13 Aug 2017)
