Munaf Patel may play second inning for Congress from Bharuch
Indian cricketer Munaf Patel is likely to join the league of Mohammed Azharuddin, Navjot Sidhu, Kirti Azad and others by plunging into active politics.
A section of Congress leaders in Gujarat has made a representation to the party’s central leadership that Munaf be given the ticket from Bharuch in Gujarat for the Lok Sabha election.
A Congress leader from Bharuch told Mirror that many leaders had put forward his name and there were chances of more people from the party supporting him. “He has no experience in politics but has a celebrity status and is still connected to his birth place,” he said. Munaf is a native of Ikhar village. However, another Congress leader said that a few state leaders are not happy with him and this may go against him.
