The former Indian cricketer, Gautam Gambhir, who has recently been conferred the Padma Shri, might be seen in a new avatar very soon. Well, if speculations are to be believed then he might be roped in as a candidate for the New Delhi seat.


Yes, you read that right. Gautam Gambhir could be pitched by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. A senior leader of BJP said the party leadership was in touch with Gautam Gambhir. He might get roped in for the New Delhi seat which currently held by Supreme Court lawyer Meenakshi Lekhi.

A source revealed :

“Top party leaders have had discussions with him. A decision is likely to be taken soon,” 

If at all it happens, Gambhir will join the list of cricketer-turned-politicians following the likes of Navjot Singh Sidhu, Kirti Azad and Mohammad Azharuddin.

Gautam Gambhir has been vocal about everything that’s happening in the country. He never shies away from voicing out his opinions on any matter.
