Tendulkar should not join politics: Milkha

Sports No Comments on Tendulkar should not join politics: Milkha 13

Noida, Nov 23 (IANS) Sachin Tendulkar has received some advice from another legend, ‘Flying Sikh’ Milkha Singh: Stay away from politics. Your name will be besmirched.

“I think Sachin should not get into politics. The name he has earned for himself, people will malign it. The government has respected him, the entire country respects him. He has got the Bharat Ratna, it is a huge achievement,” Milkha said here Saturday.

Last year, Tendulkar was nominated to the Rajya Sabha along with Bollywood actor Rekha and businesswoman Anu Aga.

Moments after Tendulkar retired from international cricket Saturday in Mumbai, he was named for India’s highest civilian award, Bharat the Ratna. He is the first sportsperson and the youngest to get the honour.

“I have met Sachin several times. He is a very respectful man. Every time he meets me, he touches my feet. He is a very good and humble human being,” said Milkha.
