In a major embarrassment to the Telangana Government which is showering goodies on P V Sindhu, Deputy Chief Minister Mahmood Ali said that the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) government is thinking of providing another coach to her so that she wins gold medals in future competitions. “Telangana government intends to provide a good coach to Sindhu. (hamari sarkaar ek achcha coach dene ka irada rakhti Hai). Her present coach is good but we will provide another coach so that she can win gold medals in future,” Ali said while waiting in a lounge at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport for Sindhu to arrive.

Sindhu and her coach P Gopichand who were given a rousing reception today morning, met Telangana CM K Chandrasekhara Rao in the evening. When contacted, Ali refused to comment. Sindhu has been training under Gopichand since she was 15 years old. Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are outdoing each other in claiming Sindhu as their own. While Gopichand hails from Prakasham district of Andhra Pradesh and is settles in Hyderabad, Sindhu ia born and brought up in Hyderabad. Her father hails from Adilabad in Telangana while her mother hails from Vijayawada in AP.
