Indian badminton star and former world no 1 player Saina Nehwal on Wednesday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), days before the elections to the  Delhi assembly. 

Nehwal's sister Chandranshu also joined the saffron party in the presence of BJP National General Secretary Arun Singh

Twenty-nine-year-old Nehwal was born in Haryana and has been a top player for India in the badminton world.  

On the professional front, Saina was last seen playing in the Thailand Masters tournament, where her performance remained less than impressive as she was knocked in the very first round.

On January 22 she was knocked out of Thailand Masters after losing to Denmark's Line Kjaersfeldt 21-13, 17-21, 21-15.

Last year, a number of sportspersons including cricketer Gautam Gambhir and Commonwealth Games medal-winning wrestler Babita Phogat had joined BJP.
