Cricketer Jadeja’s father, sister joins politics, wife stands with BJP

New Delhi: Cricketer Ravindra Jadeja’s father and sister too have joined politics but opposition party shortly after his wife Rivaba Solanki joined BJP.

Cricketer’s father Anirudhsinh Jadeja and Naynaba both have joined Congress party at an election rally in Kalavad city of Jamnagar district in the presence of Hardik Patel.

The party’s candidate contesting the Jamnagar Lok Sabha seat, Mulu Kandoriya, was also present at the rally besides Hardik Patel.

Jadeja’s father speaking on the occasion said the saffron party has failed to keep its promises made to the farmers, women and youth.

Jadeja’s wife began her political journey as the Chief of women’s wing of Karni Sena the right-wing organisation of Kashtriya community that has previously opposed to release of movie Padmavat.

When asked why did she chose BJP party she said PM Modi’s personality inspires her the way he has led the nation so far.

“PM carried out the surgical strikes. Secondly, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman returned to India within hours. It was the first time in history that a prisoner of war was released so soon,” she had said.
