Sindhu Prefers To Be Andhra Ammayi!

It is now more or less certain that badminton super star and silver medallist at Rio Olympics P V Sindhu is going to settle down as Andhra ammayi, rather than a Hyderabadi youth icon.

According to media reports, Sindhu is learnt to have accepted the offer given by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for a Group-I officer post in his government.

The offer was made soon after Sindhu won the Olympics medal, but she gave her consent during her recent visit to Amaravati participate in the National Women’s Conference.

The reports said the government is working out the formalities to give the appointment order to Sindhu. Most probably, she would be given the Deputy Collector rank post and if she really takes the job seriously, she can as well become an IAS officer in six or seven years.

At present, she is working in the central public sector oil company Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) as deputy manager (sports).

It clearly shows that Sindhu is feeling more comfortable to be called an Andhra girl, rather than Telangana girl, though her father Ramana was a volleyball player from Adilabad.

She will concentrate on the game for the time being and after a few years, she would settle down in Amaravati, where Naidu has given her 1,000 square yards of land, besides cash prize of Rs 3 crore.
