Meanwhile, former TDP minister and Nara scion Nara Lokesh pulled off a hilarious stunt what he took to his Twitter and credited Sindhu's gold medal feat to his father and former AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
Calling his father a 'visionary', Lokesh said that Chandrababu, when he was the CM of the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, had allotted 5 acres of land to PV Sindhu's coach and Indian badminton legend Pullela Gopichand. Lokesh went on to say that Gopichand had set up a badminton academy in that land and shaped up several gems like Sindhu.
While Lokesh's tweet has found some support among the TDP's loyal followers, it also led to a troll festival. Many YSRCP supporters and netizens trolled Lokesh for his opportunistic tweet. Many said that Chandrababu may have given the land but it was Gopichand's commitment and Sindhu's hard work that made all the difference.
