She said, “It is a privilege for me to be working with PM Modi, I am a very hard working person and I like hard-working people”. Along with Saina her Chandranshu sister also joined BJP.
Nehwal’s move comes at a time when many celebrities and sports personalities are joining the party and contesting elections. Her joining of the party may open opportunities for the start of electoral politics in the near future. BJP has always been in hunt of such celebrity faces for the party.
Nehwal recently went down to Line Hojmark Kjaersfeldt ending her run in Thailand Masters badminton tournament. The erstwhile world no.1 tied the knot with fellow player Parupalli Kashyap in 2018.
