Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has recently joined the BJP on Friday with weeks to go for the Lok Sabha elections and said he was ’impressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision.
Gautam Gambhir said: “I am impressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision… I have contributed to the field of cricket and now hope to do more for the country.”
While inducting Gambhir into the party, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, “Gambhir has excelled in his career and the party hopes to utilizes his talent. The BJP will benefit from his talent.”
When asked if Gambhir would contest from a Lok Sabha seat in Delhi, Jaitley said let the party’s election committee decide that.
Gambhir dismissed all speculation saying: “I have got a young family and I need to think about them as well because I have hardly spent any time with them. I do not want to miss their early days and let us see where I go from here.”
