New Delhi: Cricketer Ravindra Jadeja stunned people with his forthcoming attitude today as he announced support to the BJP in the general election merely 3 hours after his selection in Team India.

While Jadeja’s family has made a foray into active politics, with his wife Rivaba Jadeja joining the BJP last month while father and sister joining the Congress, it was unusual of an active player, unlike Gautam Gambhir who had virtually retired, to come clean about one’s political inclination.

Hours after the selection in the World Cup team, the all-rounder announced his support to the BJP. Jadeja shared the BJP’s election symbol in his tweet. In addition, he used his wife’s hashtag while tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Jadeja’s father Anirudh Singh and Naina Jadeja joined the Congress on 14 April during a Congress rally at Kalawar in Jamnagar district.

Rivaba has, meanwhile, expressed her desire to contest from Jamnagar, but when the ticket was announced, it was known that the party has reposed its faith in the current MP Poonam Madam.

The ICC World Cup is to be hosted in England this year. The name of Ravindra Jadeja figures in the 15-player Indian squad, where the other players are Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Yuswendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammad Shami.

Within three hours of the announcement of Team India for the World Cup, Jadeja made his politics clear. The reason for Ravindra Jadeja could be personal. With two of his family members in the Indian National Congress, he needed to clarify his position. Some followers of cricket and politics have disapproved of Jadeja’s decision on social media.

All the 26 Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat will face elections on 3 April in the third phase of the Lok Sabha poll of 2019.
