Chandrababu Naidu on HanumaVihari Row says, "Integrity to Game Speak Volumes"

In the middle of the ongoing controversy over Indian batter HanumaVihari's decision to leave the Andhra Pradesh Ranji Cricket team, Chief and former Chief Minister Telugu Desam Party, N Chandrababu Naidu, said this was an example of "YuvajanaSramikaRythu Congress Party's (YSRCP) vindictive politics." On Monday, Vihari announced that he will "never play for Andhra" again in domestic cricket, accusing the Andhra Cricket Association (ACA) of mistreatment that has left him "humiliated." Vihari made this revelation just after Andhra Pradesh's Ranji Trophy journey came to an end during the quarterfinals with a four-run loss to Madhya Pradesh.
Naidu took to X to extend his support and said that he stands firmly with Vihari.
Naidu posted on X, “It’s a shame that even the Andhra Cricket Association has succumbed to YSRCP’s vindictive politics. @Hanumavihari, a brilliant Indian international cricketer, has been targeted to the point where he has vowed to never play for Andhra Pradesh. Hanuma, stay strong; your integrity and commitment to the game speak volumes. These unjust actions don’t reflect the true spirit of Andhra Pradesh or our people. We stand with you, and we’ll ensure justice prevails. #WeStandWithHanuma.”
