The BJP leader Laxman further said that Sania Mirza had born in Maharashtra and settled in Hyderabad and hence a non-local. Thus she shouldn't be appointed as brand ambassador. But What would be Mr. Laxman's opinion about his party's veteran leader LK Advani, who was born in Pakistan?
Sania Mirza is the only Indian women tennis player who had achieved career high ranking of 27 in singles and 5 in doubles. This is a great achievement and motivates many Indian sports women! You can't just insult a successful Indian because she married to a Pakistani or born somewhere else than Telangana!
Mr. Laxman further accuses that Sania Mirza's appointment is for political interest considering the upcoming Hyderabad Municipal elections where minority communities are the key voters. I don't think Sania Mirza has any political effect at all. Also Sania Mirza would never like to be part of any political campaign particularly in local body elections. Looks what the state BJP leader has done is contrary to Narendra Modi's vision.
Narendra Modi in his speeches had said that good governance is his (and his party's) religion and Constitution is the only holy book! Shouldn't Amit Shah the new BJP chief look in to Laxman's tone and language?
