Sindhu, Nehwal grace badminton stadium wall | Chandigarh News – Times of India


Jalandhar: The Jalandhar Badminton Association unveiled 65ft× 35ft graffiti of ace shuttlers P V Sindhu and Saina Nehwal at the local Hans Raj stadium. The graffiti images are the biggest ever to have been made in any badminton stadium here.
Inaugurating the images, deputy commissioner Ghanshyam Thori said they would not only motivate girls but would also inspire budding players to achieve new feats in the field of sports. He said the graffiti images have been made under Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao programme to encourage girls to join sports.
The deputy commissioner lauded Olympian Dipankar Bhattacharjee Academy for announcing that it would offer free coaching to deserving children of BPL families.
He said badminton is an expensive game and those from BPL families would be trained free of cost. The DC also handed out corona warrior certificates to 30 trainees of the academy who have been training since Unlock-1. He appreciated the precautions and safety protocols being followed in the stadium since June 3.
Prominent among those present included interim committee members Aman Mittal, Ritin Khanna and Rakesh Khanna. Meanwhile, both Sindu and Nehwal tweeted their thanks to the Jalandhar administration for the honour.
