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.
