State Bureau, Kolkata. The whole world appreciates the contribution of Sourav Ganguly, one of the greatest captains of Indian cricket. Sourav, the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), can be seen taking on a new responsibility very soon. According to the information, Sourav Ganguly or his wife can go to the Rajya Sabha as a nominated member of the President.
Ganguly or his wife Dona Ganguly can go to the Rajya Sabha as a President-nominated member. This speculation is in full swing after Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited Sourav’s house on Friday and had dinner. In the coming days, the President-nominated Rajya Sabha members are to be elected.
