Sa­nia slams at­tempt to brand her out­sider

The Political and Business Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

In­dian ten­nis star Sa­nia Mirza on Thurs­day hit out at politi­cians for rais­ing ob­jec­tions to her be­ing ap­pointed as Te­lan­gana's brand am­bas­sador, say­ing that her fam­ily had been stay­ing in Hy­der­abad for more than a cen­tury.

"It hurts me that so much pre­cious time of prom­i­nent politi­cians and the me­dia is be­ing wasted on a petty is­sue of my be­ing ap­pointed the Brand Am­bas­sador of my State of Te­lan­gana. I sin­cerely be­lieve that this pre­cious time should be spent on solv­ing the more ur­gent is­sues of our State and coun­try," Sa­nia said.
