Politics has been influential in determining the future of various fields like education and sports in India. It is no hidden fact that in today’s turbulent times politics and sports are the two hot topics in our country. Currently, it seems like politics is emerging to be a new career option for retired athletes. At no time has this been more evident than in the 2019 election season, as there is a long list of sportsmen who have joined politics after making a successful career in sports. Gautam Gambhir and Vijendra Singh belong to this category of political hopefuls.
