Cricketer turned BJP MP Gautam Gambhir will campaign for the party in the ongoing district development council polls in Jammu and Kashmir, likely next week, an unidentified source in the party told Press Trust of India, on Tuesday.

He may also campaign for the BJP “in a big way” during the West Bengal Assembly elections next year. “Gambhir will participate as a star BJP campaigner in the DDC polls in Jammu and Kashmir elections expectedly on December 7-9,” said a source.

The eight-phase DDC polls started on November 28 and will conclude on December 19. Counting of votes will be done on 22 December. “The party is exploring options how to cash in on Gambhir’s persona and his popularity in the campaigning for the high-stakes West Bengal Assembly elections,” he said.

Last year, Gambhir had campaigned for a few party candidates during Haryana Assembly polls which included former hockey star Sandeep Singh.

Gambhir joined the BJP ahead of Lok Sabha polls last year. He defeated former Delhi Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely on East Delhi seat.
