The 5K run held on Friday in Hyderabad at Charminar. Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MLA, Mr Mumtaz Ahmed Khan gave a speech in which he referred PV Sindhu as a volleyball player.
The MLA inaugurated the run. While thanking the organisers and other dignitaries present on the dais he got confused about PV Sindhu career. After whispering into the ears of Deputy Chief Minister Mr Mahmood Ali, said, “We are thankful to PV Sindhu, the volleyball player who has represented Hyderabad on an international platform.”
The Olympic silver medallist shuttler took it on the lighter sid. She was seen smiling at the misrepresentation. Sindhu’s parents are former volleyball players and she is a badminton star. The MLA got confused with that.
