New Delhi: Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Friday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha election this year, slated to take place between April 11 and May 19, with the counting on May 23.

Gautam Gambhir, who announced his retirement from cricket in December 2018, has been very vocal about his support to the ruling government at the Centre, and has often lauded the policies and decisions taken by the BJP.

According to sources in the BJP, Gautam Gambhir is likely to contest from New Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, replacing Meenakshi Lekhi.

5. Surely a human life is worth much more than INR 5 lakh @ArvindKejriwal. It underlines what our machinery thinks about us, d common man. Compensation is merely a bandaid on an oozing wound whereas Delhi needs surgeries and it should begin with a systemic overhaul @AamAadmiParty
