As retired cricketers like Gautam Gambhir are already representing BJP party, Dhoni was highly expected to join the party as well. However, there was a rumour doing rounds in social media saying that the main reason behind the cricketer’s decision was Jay Amitbhai Shah, son of BJP head Amit Shah who recently became the secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. It is believed that Dhoni refused to campaign for the Jharkhand’s chief minister candidate of BJP when the party members approached. It is notable that the cricketer hasn’t involved in any kind of activities proposed by Prime minister Narendra Modi since the COVID 19 pandemic.
