Gautam Gambhir urges BJP to relieve him of political duties


In a surprising turn of events, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Gautam Gambhir announced his decision to step away from active politics. The former cricketer, who represented East Delhi, took to Twitter to share the news with his fans and followers. He expressed a desire to focus on his commitments to cricket, citing the need to redirect his attention to the sport he passionately played before entering politics.

“I have requested the Honorable Party President JP Nadda ji to relieve me from my political duties so that I can concentrate on my upcoming cricket commitments. I sincerely thank the Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving me the opportunity to serve the people. Jai Hind,” Gambhir wrote.

Gambhir's decision to quit politics comes amid reports that Gambhir may not get a ticket in the upcoming 2024 elections.

The BJP is expected to soon release a first list of candidates (more than 100 names, which will include heavyweights like Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah) for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party held marathon meetings overnight in Delhi, including one led by the Prime Minister at his Delhi residence that began at 11 pm on Thursday and ended at 4 am on Friday.

Gambhir joined the BJP in March 2019 and has since become a prominent face of the party in Delhi. She contested and won the East Delhi seat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections by a substantial margin of 6,95,109 votes.

Notably, Gambhir will be busy in the coming months due to his commitments in the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he serves as a mentor for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), a team he led to two IPL titles as captain. .

He was a key player of the Indian teams that secured the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup and the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. In 242 matches for India, Gambhir made 10,324 runs at an average of 38.95, with 20 centuries and 63 half centuries.
