For the last few days, there has been a discussion about India’s world champion captain Kapil Dev that he will start a new inning in politics. However, he has categorically ruled out such possibilities. This great all-rounder dismissed all the reports that it was being said that he may be seen joining the Aam Aadmi Party. This was not the first time such a rumour spread about Kapil. This has happened before, but Kapil Dev once again called these mere reports rumours.
Kapil made India the world champion in the year 1983. He is one of the most successful all-rounders in the country. Today, even though it has been a long time since he left cricket, despite this, there has been no dearth of love for him among the fans. In such a situation, political parties seek opportunities to advantage his popularity.
Elections to be held in Haryana
Vidhan Sabha elections will be held in Haryana in the year 2024. Arvind Kejriwal had reached Haryana a few days ago in such a situation. Here he met Kapil Dev. Kapil Dev’s picture with Kejriwal became quite viral. Such speculations were made that Kapil Dev might join the Aam Aadmi Party. It was also said that Kapil Dev would participate in Kejriwal’s rally in Kurukshetra. However, Kapil Dev denied all the news outright. He gave this information on social media.
Kapil Dev told the truth on Instagram.
Putting a post on his Instagram, Kejriwal wrote, ‘I just got the news that I will join a political party. This news is wrong. I am not associated with any political party. I am very disappointed with this rumour. If I ever take such a big step, I will announce it publicly. So far, no big player has joined the Aam Aadmi Party from Haryana, while players dominate Haryana.
Apart from Kapil Dev, Olympic medalist boxer Vijender Singh has met Arvind Kejriwal if reports are believed. The Aam Aadmi Party has made former cricketer Harbhajan Singh a Rajya Sabha MP from Punjab. So his intentions are visible. In the current BJP-JJP government of Haryana, Sandeep Singh, who was a hockey legend, is serving as the Sports Minister.
