Sachin Tendulkar becomes MP

Cricket legend sachin tendulkar took an oath as a member if the rajya sabha on Monday. He took the oath in the chamber of the rajya sabha chairman hamid Ansary. He is the today the first active sportsperson of the country to be nominated as the Rajya sabha member. Sachin reached parliament along with his wife Anjali tendulkar, BCCI vice-president and parliamentary affairs minister Rajiv shukla. This is a surprising move where the government had recommended sachin’s name along with bollywood actress Rekha and businesswomen Anu Aga as the nominated member of the rajya sabha. Though, rekha and Aga had taken the oath in May, sachin could not do so due to his IPL commitments therefore, he planned to take the oath in june which got accomplished yesterday. "This (Rajya Sabha) is a new avenue for him and I am sure he will do well and contribute there also," Dhoni had told the news reporters whereas Vishwanathan Anand said, ‘I hope sachin will do well very well and enjoy his role. It is a very big step for him and he will able to do it very well’.
