Over the years we have seen sportspersons turning politicians at the end of their playing careers. but have you ever heard of an active sportsperson joining politics? Let's make this question a bit more interesting, 'have you ever heard a foreign active player getting into Indian politics?'
According to online reports and social media posts on Thursday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hired another famous cricketer after Gautam Gambhur to their campaigning squad. Apparently, an image of the Universal Boss Chris Gayle, wearing a saffron Kurta flooded social media. Many believe that the West Indian star is here to campaign for BJP ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
A similar claim was made last year in April, that Gayle storm has entered BJP and was campaigning for Karnataka Assembly elections. The claim was backed by digitally manipulated images of the cricketer.
As per the fake post, Chris Gayle is called 'Krishna Goyal' as a joke, and the same meme is being shared all over the place using the same old photoshopped image.April 27, 2018
