It seems Sports Minister Vijay Goel really wants to prove that 'we are Indians, we travel in packs'.

Miffed with the Indian Sports Minister's entourage, Rio Olympic organisers threatened to cancel his accreditation if unaccredited people accompanying him do not end their "aggressive and rude" behaviour.

Goel, who is currently in Rio De Janeiro to cheer for the Indian contingent, apparently entered accredited areas at the venues with people who were not authorised to enter those particular venues. Plus, Continental Manager for Rio 2016 Organising Committee revealed that the people accompanying the Minister also got violent when they were denied entry.

In no time, Sports Minister Vijay Goel started trending on Twitter. While some slammed him for embarrassing India on a global platform, some said India finally got its gold medal.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashish Khetan wasted no time in attacking the BJP leader.
