Virender Sehwag's father has assured Union Labour Minister Sahib Singh Verma that the star cricketer would campaign for the Bharatiya Janata Party in the Lok Sabha polls.

"Virender will travel with Verma and will ensure he gets re-elected with a huge margin," Krishan Kumar Sehwag told a news channel on Tuesday.

Verma visited Sehwag's home on Tuesday morning to congratulate his family, which lives in Najafgarh area in the Outer Delhi constituency from where the minister is seeking re-election.
