Former cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin on Thursday met AICC general secretary Veerappa Moily in the presence of Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy and APCC president D Srinivas at the Lake View Guesthouse here. He was with them for about half an hour but left without talking to mediapersons. D Srinivas said Azhar had met Congress president Sonia Gandhi in October and expressed his desire to join the Congress. “He was a great cricketer and is still an icon. He had been banned from playing cricket but there is no ban on joining politics. We are considering how to fit him into the party,” said Srinivas.
