"It is a significant induction," said Arun Jaitley, one of the two union ministers who addressed a press conference to make the announcement on Friday.

Speaking at BJP headquarters in Delhi, Gambhir,37, said, "I thank the party for giving me this opportunity. I am joining this party after being inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision. It's an opportunity for me to do something for my countrymen. I look forward to doing my best."

According to the sources, former cricketer may contest the April-May national election as a BJP candidate from Delhi. The 37-year-old may contest from the prestigious New Delhi constituency, currently held by the party's Meenakshi Lekhi.

 

Whereas, few days back gambhir announced his retirement from all forms of cricket in December 2018, with the Ranji Trophy game between Delhi and Andhra Pradesh being his last match.

"The next Ranji trophy match against Andhra will be my last game in the sun. It is all coming to an end from where it started at Feroz Shah Kotla," Gambhir said in his video announcement, which was shared on social media. "As a batsman I have always valued timing. I know the time is just right and I am sure it's sweet as well," he said.
