‘Bhajji’will be Rajya Sabha MP Choice of AAP
Former cricketer Harbhajan Singh is likely to be nominated to Rajya Sabha from Punjab by the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government led by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, sources have said.
The former off-spinner may be given charge of a new sports university in Jalandhar, which Mr Mann had promised to set up during the campaign for the elections held last month. The new Chief Minister has promised to make promoting sports a priority.
If he becomes a Rajya Sabha member, Mr Singh, 41, will enter a list of former sportspersons who have served as MPs, such as Sachin Tendulkar.
