PV Sindhu, in a video, recalled how constant support and appreciation by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has served as an inspiration for her to do more for the country. She recollected her meeting with PM Modi before and after Tokyo Olympics in 2021 as well as while receiving the Padma Bhushan and termed them to be ‘most memorable’.
Sindhu said that when PM Modi congratulated her by saying, “You’ve done really well for the country” meant a lot to her. Adding further she said that when athletes got medals, an appreciation from the PM, made everyone really happy. She remembered how PM Modi urged all athletes to encourage the youngsters.
She said, “PM Modi is a lot more than just a leader. His vision for sports is exemplary. Whatever he says and the way he says it that… we will do it, we can do it… To encourage and educate is a very big thing. Before going for the Olympics, he had an online call with all the athletes. His words gave us a lot of confidence and encouragement. The way he encouraged us means a lot because such inspiring words before an event is a big thing.”
