After PT Usha `plays’ tennis in Vizag, two coaches get notice

All through the Andhra Pradesh establishment was lampooned over social media for this flexi that was put up on RK Beach road in Visakhapatnam on National Sports Day. It had mixed up Sania Mirza with PT Usha. It attracted a lot of attention because of its location opposite the INS Kurusura Submarine museum on the Beach road. 

An embarrassed Joint collector of Visakhapatnam has issued show-cause notices to two coaches of the Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh, asking them to explain how the gaffe occurred. The reaction was expected because the flexi carried the photograph of chief minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy prominently and he had even tweeted about the National Sports Day. The blunder showed the new politicial establishment in Andhra Pradesh in poor light.

While it is highly unlikely that SAAP coaches would have been ignorant of the two Indian star sportspersons, the needle of suspicion is pointing to the digital printing centre.
