Govt to nominate Sachin to RS

The union government has reportedly decided to nominate cricket super star Sachin Tendulkar.

According to media reports, Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has written to the Home Ministry to propose the name of Sachin for Rajya Sabha nomination from the President’s quota.

Sachin and his wife Anjali have met the Congress president Sonia Gandhi at her residence here on Thursday morning. They were with the UPA chairperson for more than half-an-hour. Sachin was accompanied by the IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla. It is in this backdrop that the buzz about Sachin’s nomination to the upper house has picked up momentum.
