Dinesh Mongia joins BJP

New Delhi: Ex-cricketer Dinesh Mongia on Tuesday joined the BJP here amid speculation that he may fight the Punjab elections.

Mongia, who has played international cricket for India, said he wanted to serve the people of Punjab.

“I want to serve the people of Punjab by joining the Bharatiya Janata Party. Today, there is no other party that can work better than the BJP for the development of the country,” Mongia said after joining it.

He was welcomed in BJP by Water Resource Minister and Punjab in-charge of the party Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

Mongia, 44, who hails from Punjab, was the first Indian cricketer to play a T20 match for Lancashire in 2004.
