Hence, several civic school students, who could not afford to buy the shoes, were unable to participate, despite NMMC being the organizer of the event. A parent of a civic school student said, "My 17 -year-old son is an excellent badminton player, but we cannot afford to buy the expensive shoes, therefore, my son could not display his talent." He added that experts in the sports arena have claimed that at any badminton tournament, the players were allowed to play barefoot if they do not have gum sole shoes. "But, NMSA is apparently an exception," he added. The administration clarified that they could not allow the participants to play bare foot, as they would injure their ankles.

Mayor Sudhakar Sonawane said he would request concerned additional municipal commissioner to allocate a budget for providing gum-sole shoes to those who could not afford them .
