Bhokardhan (Maharashtra), Oct 7 (ANI): Former cricketer Vinod Kambli, who is contesting the forthcoming assembly elections in Maharashtra has said that he was confident of hitting fours and sixes in his political innings as well.
Kambli is contesting from Vikhroli seat of Mumbai on a ticket of the Lok Bharati Party.
Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Kambli said,"I am ready to hit sixes and fours in this also."
The state's ruling alliance of federal ruling Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) is taking on the opposition coalition of Shiv Sena and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The Congress-NCP combine is hoping for a hat-trick in the state.
Meanwhile, campaigning in Kalka town of Haryana, BJP President Rajnath Singh urged the central government to ask Pakistan to stop anti-India activities.
"Pakistan should be told in clear cut terms that it should stop anti-India terror activities perpetrated from its soil. And if it doesn't then all diplomatic relations with Pakistan should be scrapped," Singh said.
Haryana is witnessing a triangular contest mainly between the Congress, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and the BJP.
The BJP- INLD alliance had swept the 1999 assembly polls in Haryana and ruled the state for five years. But in the 2005 elections, INLD lost its majority, winning just nine.
Political temperature and blame game between political leaders and parties is on high ahead of the October 13 polls in Maharashtra and Haryana. (ANI)
