Congress mocks Bal Thackeray's remark on Sachin's RS nomination

Kanpur , Sun, 29 Apr 2012 ANI

Kanpur, Apr 29 (ANI): Congress leader and Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal on Sunday took a dig at Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray over his statements on Tendulkar, saying other political parties could not digest the fact that Tendulkar had been nominated by the Congress-led central government.

"I feel some people are jealous of the fact that we have nominated Sachin Tendulkar for the Rajya Sabha. They are having some stomachache. Some political parties are also suffering from this, which is natural also. If some political party or government plays such a master stroke then such reactions are totally expected," said Jaiswal.

Earlier, Thackeray had questioned the Congress party's intention over nominating Tendulkar as a member of the upper house of the parliament describing it as Congress' 'dirtiest play'.

Tendulkar was recently nominated for the Rajya Sabha along with veteran actress Rekha and industrialist turned social activist Anu Aga.

Tendulkar is the leading run-scorer and century maker in test and one-day international cricket. He is the first player to score a double century in ODI cricket.

In 2002, just 12 years into his career, Wisden ranked Tendulkar the second greatest Test batsman of all time, behind Donald Bradman, and the second greatest one-day-international (ODI) batsman of all time, behind Viv Richards. He was also a part of the 2011 Cricket World Cup winning Indian team. (ANI)
