Vinod Kambli on Thursday, Sep 24 reportedly filed his nomination to contest the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly Election from Vikhroli constituency.
The 37-year-old who is a candidate of Lok Bharati Party, made his intention to contest in the assembly elections public during a rally in Aug 2009.
In the rally, Kambli had said, "This is the same ground where I practiced day and night to get an entry into the Indian cricket team. Now, I am launching my political career from here and will definitely hit fours and sixes in the field of politics."
The cricketer-turned-politician who is a Dalit from Mumbai, is being projected as a pro-poor candidate.
