Controversies of Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore
In May 2013, his name was dragged into a "failed" dope test that was conducted before the Athens Games in 2004. In the 2004 World Cup in Bangkok, he had tested positive for the 'A' sample, but the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) cleared him after he returned negative for his 'B' sample. Rathore felt that digging this issue after 9 years by National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) because the April 6 elections were declared "null and void" by the Delhi High Court in March 2013.
NRAI challenged the decision of allowing the plea of Rathore that the election was a 'sham and be quashed' as he was denied an opportunity to contest.
Taking note of Rathore's plea, the court said that denying him the right to contest elections was not justified.
In February 2015, a false report on his remark on women journalist created controversy after he made comments on the role of women journalists during an interaction with women from the field of media at the Indian Women Press Corps. He said, "Your role could be far better utilized without going out in the field. Not that you should not go out. In the sense of safety and security, the working hours, conditions, and different roles attached as a mother, sister or a wife."
However, Rathore denied making such demeaning remarks on women journalists and said, "Wrong interpretation. My wife is an ex-soldier," read a tweet, while another added "False, false, false. Totally false, Shame."
