-------------------

Sachin Tendulkar as Rajya Sabha MP? Prime Minister recommends nomination

"Sachin Tendulkar has reportedly been recommended to be nominated as a member of Rajya Sabha. "

"Usually, a consent is sought before a person's name is recommended for nomination to the Upper House."

"Observers however say Sachin is actively involved in playing cricket and may not accept the offer. They point out that he has been a most apolitical person and not even been associated with a political cause."


-------------------

So even they want him to retire from cricket and are thinking of novel ways to get it done :D

Err.. Jayasuriya has retired from International Cricket... If you were trying to say he was an MP before retiring, then that's fine.

Also, I am surprised at his decision - Maybe he felt obliged or something, seeing its coming from PM/President's Quota?

----------

NDTV: "If he is nominated, we will expect him to devote time to Parliament. It is serious matter."
IBNLive: "If he is being nominated surely he will devote some time to Parliament."

Different interpretation of probably something said commonly
