Rio Olympics gave India a good roller coaster ride and in the end, Indian Athletes like PV Sindhu, Sakshi Malik, Dipa Karmakar, made the country proud with their winning performances.
PV Sindhu won a silver medal in Women’s singles Badminton while Sakshi Malik got a bronze in 58kg free style wrestling. Not only celebrities but everybody be it the government or cricket players, awarded and congratulated these athletes for their victories in Rio Games.
Salman Khan gifted a cash prize of Rs. 1 lac to each athlete who participated in the Olympics this time and on the other hand Sachin Tendulkar gifted PV Sindhu, Sakshi Malik, Dipa Karmakar and Badminton coach Pullela Gopichand with the classy and stylish BMWs in order to honour these players.
But Shobha De, a socialist and columnist, seems to be unhappy with the honour done by Sachin. Remember Shobha’s tweet while India went for Rio Olympics?
“Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali hath wapis aao. What a waste of time and opportunity.”
Through which she said that Indians have gone to Rio just to click selfies and come back. But she got highly criticised not only by the people but also by celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan and Virendra Sehwag.
That was not enough, now Shobha, on Sachin’s gift tweeted,
Here's a small, annoying but pertinent question: Did Sachin T pay for the BMWs he 'gave away ' to Rio athletes?

After a few hours, she posted yet another tweet slamming the athletes and BMW brand.
Great ad for BMW. Who will pay for running these pricy beasts? Hoping they don't become white elephants for athletes pic.twitter.com/MX0od5sTt3
