All-rounder Praveen Kumar on Sunday joined the Samajwadi Party. “I have met the Chief Minister and decided to join the party. I will do whatever is possible for the party,” he told reporters.
Asked whether he would contest the State Assembly polls, Kumar said, “I am a kid in this field. As of now I will try to learn it [politics].”
Heaping praise on Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Kumar, who hails from Meerut, said the Chief Minister has done a lot for sportsmen and big stadiums are being constructed in Lucknow and Saifai.
