Sachin Tendulkar, MI or MP ??







Pin It



Sachin Tendulkar went to 10 Janpath to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi with wife Anjali in tow. Rahul Gandhi was present at the meeting and so was defence minister A. K. Antony.

Soon after, news emerged that Tendulkar was headed for the Rajya Sabha as a nominated member.

Sachin Tendulkar’s nomination to India’s parliament was met with widespread bemusement Friday, with many questioning whether the publicly apolitical batting superstar will have the time or inclination to serve as an MP.

He is the first active sportsman to receive the honour, with the seats normally gifted to people who have distinguished themselves in the arts, sciences or social services.

Retirement is definitely not in the list, Sachin thinks.

Congress insiders said Sachin’s induction in Parliament is an investment for the future, especially in Maharashtra where the Congress is struggling hard to retain its ground against a resurgent BJP-Shiv Sena combine and the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena.

Whatever it is, a good news for Sachin Tendulkar’s fan but history should not be repeated. We have seen what happens with distinguished personalities when they enter politics.
