Ganguly says no to politics.

FORMER Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Thursday denied all speculation about his joining politics and contesting forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.

" I am not in politics. I am a sportsman. It is confirmed," Ganguly said during a surprise visit to the new state secretariat building, Nabanna, on Thursday evening.

The cricket icon refused to elaborate anything on his meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Ganguly said he met Mamata to discuss matters related to his upcoming school project in Kolkata.

Rumours were rife that Ganguly had received an offer from the BJP to contest the Lok Sabha elections and Narendra Modi was reportedly keen to see him as the country's next sports minister.
