    Why can't they nominate some military men instead of being clueless about defence?

    Continue making a mockery of the legislature by these stupid populist moves.

    Instead of Sachin, the Bihari educator Salman Khan could have been introduced. Atleast that would have benefitted the students from his increased exposure.

    Stoooooopid politicians.

    i must say he has made smart move, all most about to retire frm cricket. Plus he kept things under rap, means he will survive in this dirty game.

    Rajya Sabha has eminent citizens quota. Anyone of us can be nominated to RS if we become eminent citizens. There is nothing wrong in Sachin being nominated to RS. The timing is the problem. He is still playing and will not be able to devote any time to RS. Unless off course there is off season and RS is in session.

    I would counter that statement....i don't follow cricket that interestingly however i do know that Sachin gets selected in the team by playing politics even when he does not perform well...thereby disallowing worthy and newer players.

    Sachin agrees to enter Rajya Sabha

    A Bharat Ratna might still be a little distant, but cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar will soon be an MP. This will be the first time an active cricketer, rather any sportsperson, has been nominated to the Rajya Sabha. On Thursday, the government nominated Sachin along with veteran actor Rekha and spunky business leader Anu Aga.

    Sachin's nomination to the Rajya Sabha took political circles by surprise, even though it was in the works for a while. Cricket lovers too were bemused with many wondering how an active cricketer who is on the road for around 250 days a year will be able to do justice to his parliamentary duties - and if he can't, would this Rajya Sabha entry really enhance Sachin's stature?

    Senior government figures, including minister of state for parliamentary affairs Rajiv Shukla, have been in touch with Sachin for the past couple of weeks - obviously in the hope that Sachin's acceptance of a Rajya Sabha nomination would help burnish the government's credentials.

    The calculation appeared correct as no one, including the Opposition, had anything but a welcome for the immensely popular cricket superstar.

    Sachin, it is said, had sought time to think over the offer. A week ago, he conveyed his acceptance to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. The news of his nomination, along with that of Rekha and Anu Aga, broke when Sachin with his wife Anjali came to meet Sonia Gandhi at 10 Janpath in the company of Rajiv Shukla.


    God has a new House: Sachin agrees to enter Rajya Sabha - The Times of India

    My goodness, he accepted it!!! :shocked: :omg: First he delayed his retirement and drawn criticism and now he accepted the offer for entering into house and too with the Cong.. :rolleyes:

    Sachin is not highly educated He is just Class 12 pass that too in Arts

    So he cannot contribute in any debate other in sports
