One news is that Mithali Raj, former captain of Indian women’s cricket team recently met BJP President JP Nadda in Hyderabad. This news was discussed in the whole country, but especially the newspapers of South India gave a different twist to this news. In June this year, retired Mithali was named one of the finest cricketers of all time. Finished her career as the highest run-scorer in women’s ODIs.
Political analysis suggests that Bharatiya Janata Party wants to increase its base in Telugu states and under this link party President Nadda met Mithali Raj. He also met many actors in this tour, hence the name of the promotional tour.
Now back to Mithali Raj, it is certain that she is one of the most famous and special faces of Telangana state. 7805 runs in 232 One Day Internationals at an average of 50.68, as well as 12 Tests and 89 T20 Internationals, scoring 699 and 2364 runs respectively. After finishing her cricket career, Mithali spoke about her future plans, saying, “I haven’t thought about it seriously yet, even when I used to play, there were offers of commentary. I am also curious about cricket administration. Having been in cricket for a long time, I know and understand what the team needs, what the players want. My experience will come in handy in this. Coaching is also open. Haven’t decided anything yet.” It has been almost three months since he retired but till now the situation in his case remains the same and has not tied himself in any role.
The biopic on his life “Shabash Mithu” has now been released and its promotion is also over. Covid happened and now negative. She wants to play IPL and is preparing cricket kit again but IPL is far away. Thus free time and meeting the BJP President, this started the discussion whether she is going to join BJP i.e. ready to start her political innings? Although political personalities and sportspersons keep meeting each other, but considering the situation, sometimes this meeting becomes special. This thing is being applied on the meeting of Mithali Raj.
Her meeting with the BJP President has been a discussion among the fans, Mithali’s reaction after this meeting is only going to promote this thinking. BJP President JP Nadda shared photos of the meeting and tweeted, “Had a wonderful conversation with former cricketer Mithali Raj. There was great enthusiasm among the players under his leadership. He appreciated the guidance and personal support given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mithali Raj tweeted, “Nadda ji, thank you so much for taking the time. It was nice chatting with you. Following the Prime Minister’s guidance, players from across the country brought laurels to the nation.”
Now the question is that whether Mithali is going to enter politics? By the way, many other players like Saina Nehwal, Babita Phogat, Great Khali have recently joined the list of those who started their political career with BJP. Although Mithali Raj, for the time being, is mistaking the idea that she is going into politics and in her eyes her meeting with JP Nadda was just a ‘courtesy call’ but generally everyone, initially, gives such an answer. gives.
If the news of Mithali Raj’s political innings turns out to be true, it won’t be much of a surprise. Before him, many cricketers have entered politics in search of career outside cricket.
