Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament nominated by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), stated that before entering politics, he consulted with his close friend and batting legend Sachin Tendulkar. Beginning in 2012, Tendulkar served as a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament.

“I have the highest regard for Paaji” (Tendulkar). He has made me feel so at ease. We grew close because of that comfort, and I believe he enjoyed my company as well. Then I began speaking to him in Punjabi, and we both enjoyed talking to each other. I always go to him for advice when I need it. I spoke with him before joining the Rajya Sabha. He told me that I was getting a chance to serve my country and that I should only commit if I could devote enough time to the job. That was sound advice, in my opinion. This is my new era; I don’t know how long it will last, only that I do it well.” During an Idea Exchange session with media, Harbhajan Singh stated.

When asked about his transition from cricket to politics, Harbhajan stated that his time in parliament has been a learning experience.

“It’s a completely different field for me. I played cricket for about 20 years and loved every minute of it. Today, I am who I am because of the game. I was even given the MP seat because I am Harbhajan Singh, the cricketer. I’m still very new to politics and trying to figure out how things work. Being in Parliament, meeting the big people of our country, the decision-makers, is an experience; sharing my knowledge, getting to know their minds in a variety of different aspects of life, and what is going on in India is obviously a big learning. The more time I devote to it, the more I try to learn from various people. I try to keep as much track as I can of these political agendas, what is happening in India, and try to raise the same issues in Parliament, as well as what has recently happened in Delhi with the mayor and stuff, and BJP and AAP,” Harbhajan explained.

After the mayor election, there were fights in the MCD House, and when asked about them, Harbhajan responded, “It was not the right thing to do.” On Wednesday, Shelly Oberoi of the Aam Aadmi Party was chosen to lead the Municipal Corporation of Delhi.
