Andhra Pradesh CM Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy Felicitates Shuttler Srikanth, Grants Land For Badminton Academy

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy felicitated shuttler Kidambi Srikanth, who won a silver in the recently held World Championships in Spain.

The champion player, who holds the post of the cadre of Deputy Collector in the Government of Andhra Pradesh, was also given Rs. 7 lakhs as cash incentive and allotted five acres of land to set up a badminton Academy in Tirupati.

“It is a great honour to be felicitated by the Chief Minister and it only enhances my responsibility to give back something to the sport,” Srikanth said.

Srikanth also hinted that the proposed Academy will be one of the best in the country and would definitely cater to the needs and aspirations of badminton lovers from Andhra Pradesh.
