New Delhi, July 24 ANI | 3 months ago

Former IPS officer Kiran Bedi today said that the elected representatives who are opposing Sania Mirza's appointment as the brand ambassador of Telangana are involved in small talk and wasting everyone's time.


Bedi told ANI, "These elected representatives are involved in very small talk. This is small talk and wasting big time of everyone. A daughter remains a daughter, she doesn't lose the roots in her country, and some of our elected people refuse to grow up. If a man marries outside the country he is not called an outsider then why should a woman be called that?"

Bedi also added, "Sania is not only the pride of India but she is also now the pride of Pakistan. Is that not great?"

The tennis player also found support from CPI leader Brinda Karat who said that only a perverted and twisted mind can give such statements adding that the comment must be dismissed outright.

Sania Mirza, too, has expressed her hurt and anguish over her being branded an outsider by some elements in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) post her appointment as a brand ambassador for the state of Telangana.

In a statement issued here, Sania said, "I strongly condemn attempts to brand me as an outsider. I am an Indian and will always remain an Indian till the end of my life. It hurts me that so much time of politicians is being wasted on a petty issue."
