Cricket sensation and Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar will give shuttler PV Sindhu a BMW auto for her silver award winning exertion at the Rio Olympics. The Car is being supported by Tendulkar’s dear companion and president of Hyderabad Badminton Association of India V Chamundeswaranath. “Sindhu will be gifted a BMW car by Mr Chamudeswaranath and his friends. Mr Sachin Tendulkar will be presenting the car to Sindhu,” said Punnaiah Choudary, BAI Secretary (Tournaments), who had accompanied the team in Rio. Four years back, Tendulkar had present a BMW to pro shuttler Saina Nehwal, who had come back with a bronze decoration at the London Olympics. Tendulkar had additionally presented a Maruti Swift to Sindhu, who had won the young ladies’ singles title in the Asian Youth Under-19 Championship in 2012.
A post on Facebook about this read as, “Great, wish someone could sponsor lifetime or a monthly quota of fuel and lifetime maintenance so that she can enjoy the Gift with no hesitation. So that it might not only be a marketed news with marketing strategy but also of genuine use.” “This will degrade other sports persons, if this was USA/China, the govt/sports authorities will ask the winners/participants what to do if they want to win gold in next tournament, they will arrange the facilities and fulfil players needs, instead of dumping them to freebies, offers, cashing etc.,” read another post. Surprisingly, there was severe and serious outrage on Sachin Tendulkar on this aspect.
