Rio Olympic Silver Medalist PV Sindhu is bringing laurels to the country by breaking records and winning the badminton titles at international level but still political class of our country is not paying due importance towards her. Recently,MLA of the All India Majlis-e-lttehad-ul Muslimeen Mumtaz Ahmed Khan referred to PV Sindhu as ‘National Volleyball Player’.
In 5K run in Hyderabad, MLA committed this error even after consulting Telangana Deputy CM Mahmood Ali while flagging of the start of the run asking ,”What did she play?”
In the video it can be seen MLA during her speech forgets which sports is played by PV Sindhu and he tries to remember but flatters. The MLA from Hyderabad says,” We are Thankful to PV Sindhu , the Volleyball players who has represented Hyderabad on an international platform.”
In the video, PV Sindhu was giving a straight response and didn’t gave any reaction to the error by the MLA.

This was not the first time when any politician showed their careless attitude, earlier also Mahmood Ali was in news when he said ,”We will provide better coach to PV Sindhu ” just after she came back winning silver medal in the Rio Olympics.
It is sad to see such attitude of policy makers towards the jewels of the country. PV Sindhu has been in excellent form since Rio Olympics as silver medal was followed by China open and Hong Kong Super series. Such things can break the morals of players.
This show how low importance is given to sports in our country and this may be the reason for India winning No gold medal. Mumtaz Ahmed Khan should apologize.
Thanks for Reading!
