Bengaluru: Taking a cue from Kirti Azad, Chetan Chauhan, Navjot Singh Sidhu and others, former Karnataka and India cricketer Vijay Raghavendra Rao Bharadwaj appears to have decided to begin a political innings by joining the Bharatiya Janata Party.

He enlisted himself as a party member at a simple function held in Girinagar in the presence of Union minister H N Ananth Kumar on Sunday. Bharadwaj, speaking on the occasion, said that he admired the good work being rendered by prime minister Modi. He was happy to become a member of the BJP, he said.

He further said that field of sports did not get the support it deserved in the state and the country. He sought transparency in the back-up to sports and sought a suitable policy towards this arena.
