A Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport (BEST) bus has been sent to Hyderabad for PV Sindhu and her coach Pullela Gopichand's victory rally.

PV Sindhu, first Indian woman to win an Olympic silver medal, will return on Monday to Hyderabad. The state government of Telangana had requested BEST to provide them the double Decker open deck bus for receiving them and carrying out the victory rally in Hyderabad.

Accordingly, BEST has provided its bus Nilambari for carrying out the victory rally. The bus left Mumbai at 9.00am on Sunday with a team of drivers and maintenance staff, says the statement issued by BEST.

BEST chairman Jagdish Patil expressed satisfaction of the fact that we have accepted the challenge of being a part of the event at such a short notice.

“It will be an honour to be part of the celebrations. The bus would cover a journey of almost 1600kms which itself is quite a remarkable feat. Congratulatory wishes shall be given to Sindhu by the team on behalf of BEST, and a poster to that effect shall be displayed on the bus,” GM BEST said.
