Fan Says Virender Sehwag Should Have Been MP Before Gautam Gambhir. Here’s His Reply…

Virender Sehwag had an interesting reply to an user on social media who said that he should have been a Member of Parliament before teammate Gautam Gambhir.

Former Indian cricket team opener Virender Sehwag believes that sportspersons should not enter politics as most of them only enter the field for “ego and hunger for power”. Taking to X, formerly Twitter, he wrote, “I am not at all interested in politics. Have been approached by both major parties in the last two elections. My view is that most entertainers or sportsman should not enter politics as most are there for their own ego and hunger for power and barely spare genuine time for people; few are exceptions, but generally, most only do PR.” “I love being involved with cricket and commentating, and being a part-time MP whenever convenient is not something I ever aspire for.” The cricketer was responding to a man who “thought” Sehwag should have been an MP before Gautam Gambhir.

Sehwag’s comment comes just a day after his ex-India and Delhi colleague Gambhir found himself at the centre of a controversy following an offensive middle finger gesture to a section of the crowd in Pallekele during India’s Asia Cup match against Pakistan.

In his clarification, Gambhir accused some fans of chanting anti-India slogans.

“When you come to watch sport don’t indulge in political sloganeering. If you are shouting anti-India slogans and Kashmir slogans you can’t expect me to keep quiet. Social media never gives you full picture,” he had told reporters on Monday.

Although a section of the media reported chants of “Kohli, Kohli” when Gambhir was walking back to the broadcasting area from the ground, he made it clear that his reaction had nothing to do fans chanting “Kohli”.

“Whatever is shown on social media, there is no truth to it. People show what they want to show on social media. What actually happened was there were anti-India slogans being chanted.

“There were slogans about Kashmir also. So, there will obviously be a reaction, one way or the other or laugh at it,” Gambhir said.
