PV Sindhu battled for around two weeks to finally settle for a silver medal at the recently concluded Rio Olympics 2016. In the final watch, Sindhu badly lost to Spanish opponent after winning the first set in an uncomfortable way. Sindhu was not at all in good shape during the whole game since she showed a lack of fitness to combat the strong opponent. However, it was certain that despite the defeat, a silver medal was waiting for her. The battleground turned back to India when she returned from Rio. Since Sindhu belongs to Andhra Pradesh, the battle turned out between Andhra and Telangana. We all know how people from both states clash each other to split the united Andhra Pradesh by conducting a series of bandhs and violent activities including attacking buses and trains.

Unusual battle to claim Olympic Silver medallist PV Sindhu

After silver medallist PV Sindhu returned to India, she saw an unusual battle of political one-upmanship between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. This is because both states have claimed that India’s first ever silver medalist belongs to them. When they fought for a separate state they never thought about this unity. The recent battle itself exposes the serious regional insecurity between the two states.
