AP: Will Azhar contest on a Congress ticket?
January 20, 2009 19:43 IST
As news channels flashed the news of his possible entry into politics, Azhar himself expressed surprise at the speculation. "As of now, I don't know from where this story has come. If I join Congress, you will come to know that," he said.
The reports, quoting sources, claimed that Azhar had recently met Congress chairperson Sonia Gandhi [Images] and expressed his wish to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Incidentally, Azhar's meeting with Telengana Rastra Samiti president K Chandrasekhar Rao in February last year had sparked a similar speculation about the possibility of the former captain joining TRS.
