Bhajji dismisses speculations of joining politics

New Delhi [India], Dec.22 : Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has brushed aside speculations suggesting that he might be joining politics anytime soon, saying he has no intention to do the same.

"I have no intentions of joining politics any time soon. Please stop spreading rumors," Harbhajan said on Twitter. Days after possibilities of cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu joining the Congress Party sooner than later emerged, there have been speculations that Harbhajan might also join the Sonia Gandhi-led party.

There were also reports that the Indian spinner has been in talks with Congress leaders about joining the party and likely to contest from Jalandhar in the assembly elections in Punjab.
