Sachin Tendulkar, MP

Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar today began the new innings as a member of Parliament.

He took oath as member of Rajya Sabha to which he was nominated on April 26.

39-year-old Tendulkar, who was accompanied by his wife Anjali, took oath in the chamber of Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari.

“Cricket comes first,” Tendulkar said when reporters asked whether he preferred cricket to Parliament.

Two others – actor Rekha and industrialist Anu Aga – who were nominated to Rajya Sabha along with Tendulkar had taken oath last month when the House was in session.

Tendulkar was busy with the IPL season, which ended on May 27.

He had created history by scoring 100 international centuries in March this year.

Meanwhile, Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said Tendulkar will make a contribution as a Rajya Sabha member also.

“This (Rajya Sabha) is a new avenue for him and I am sure he will do well and contribute there also,” Dhoni told reporters.

“I would like to wish him all the very best. He has been contributing in cricket and has done well in every field,” Dhoni said.

Earlier, World chess champion Viswanathan Anand said that Sachin Tendulkar serving as Rajya Sabha member would be a big step in his life and wished the cricket legend to enjoy his new role.

“I hope he (Tendulkar) enjoys his role and he is able to do it very well. It’s a big step for him and I think he will enjoy it,” Anand said.
