He stressed that people should vote for a leader who is decisive, though he refused to take any name. <p></p> <p></p>Asked if India should play Pakistan in the World Cup, he said, "There are two points which are discussed, whether we should have a war with Pakistan or not (and whether we should play Pakistan)." <p></p> <p></p>"That is also one point that is discussed. We should do whatever is good for the country's welfare. When India and Pakistan play a match, it is nothing less than a war. We should win the war, not lose it," he told reporters at Goa Fest, an annual event organised here by advertising associations. <p></p> <p></p>The World Cup will be played in England and Wales between May 30 and July 14 this year. <p></p> <p></p>Asked if he intended to join politics, Sehwag quipped, "I have always worked on contract. Right from Ranji to the IPL (Indian Premier League), whichever party gives me a good contract, I will join." <p></p> <p></p>On a lighter note, he added, "The contract should not be less that Rs 100 crore."
