GAUTAM GAMBHIR JOINS BJP; STANDS AS ONE OF THE CANDIDATES IN EAST DELHI CONSTITUENCY

Gautam Gambhir, former India batsman, served the Indian cricket team for 15 years and retired from in December.

On April 22, the BJP had released a list of the proposed candidates who will be contesting the Lok Sabha elections, 2019. In the list, four of the sitting lawmakers were re-nominated in Delhi. One of the names was that of Gautam Gambhir. He joined the party last month only. After his joining, he said:

"I have been influenced by the PM, his vision for the country. This is a fabulous platform for me to do something for the country,"

Gambhir is thus a cricketer-turned-politician and one of the candidates (of BJP) in the East Delhi constituency.

Gambhir is a resident of Delhi's Rajinder Nagar and he had campaigned for BJP leader Arun Jaitley in Amritsar in the 2014 national elections. Maheish Girri has been replaced by him as the party's candidate.

Gambhir's social media posts got strong comments on contemporary politics and incidents had inspired talk about his joining politics.
