Saina Nehwal has often praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party for their work. Yesterday, she went a step ahead and even joined his party - BJP. The political party welcomed the ace Badminton player with open arms and the player promised to serve the nation in her full capacity. While Saina is not the first sports personality to join politics, her move did get discussed widely on social media. Some bashed her for the same while some sent her congratulatory messages. But one tweet, in particular, caught everyone's attention. It was made by another Badminton player Jwala Gutta.
Jwala on her Twitter spoke about someone joining the party without taking any names. However, netizens were quick enough to gauge that she is pointing at Saina. Jwala wrote, "Pehli baar Suna hai…bewajah khelna shuru kiya aur ab bewajah party join kiya." It English it means, "first time heard of it, started playing for no reason and now joining the party for no reason." Soon her comment section got flooded with people pro and against Saina joining BJP.

One user wrote, "Jealousy is the most difficult emotion to hide." Another user wrote, "Hope she doesn't start playing in Khakhi shorts." What do you think?

When Saina joined BJP, she in her speech said, "Today, I am joining a party that performs well for the country. Modi Ji has done so much for sports in India with initiatives like Khelo India. Looking forward to working hard for the country and the people: Badminton player."
