Yuvraj Singh's Post

This comes after Yuvraj's name emerged in the media as a potential contender for a BJP ticket from Punjab's Gurdaspur constituency. The two-time World Cup winner, however, denied such claims and said that he would continue to make a difference through his foundation. Currently, popular actor Sunny Deol is an MP from Gurdaspur, representing the BJP.

Following Yuvraj Singh's meeting with Union Minister Nitin Gadkari last month, Yuvraj's name surfaced as the star's replacement in the polls. The development comes ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, which are likely to be held in April-May.

With the polls approaching, all eyes are inevitably turning towards the key states that will once again shape the political landscape for the next five years. The Lok Sabha comprises a total of 545 seats. Out of these, elections will be conducted by the Election Commission to fill 543 seats. Fans Speculate Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant's Pre-Wedding Event As Reason for Long Gap Between India vs England 4th and 5th Test.

Certain states hold more significance than others due to the higher number of seats they represent in the lower house of Parliament.
