Having made a mark in Indian women’s cricket, former captain Mithali Raj is all set to begin her political innings in Telangana. The 39-year-old met BJP president J.P. Nadda in Hyderabad on August 27 as part of the party’s outreach to rope in celebrities. She hopes to get the party ticket from the Secunderabad Cantonment constituency to wrest the seat from the Telangana Rashtra Samithi. Confirmation, though, will come only after she joins the BJP formally. PM Modi is likely to be present on the occasion.
