New Delhi: May 30, 2012

Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar will take oath as member of Rajya Sabha (Upper House of Indian Parliament) on June 4.

Tendulkar, who turned 39 recently and was nominated to the Upper House in April, is scheduled to take oath as member in the chamber of Chairman Hamid Ansari, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Shukla said on Wednesday.

Two others–actress Rekha and industrialist Anu Aga–who were nominated to Rajya Sabha along with Tendulkar had already taken oath earlier this month when the House was in session.

Tendulkar was busy with the Indian Premier League (IPL) season, which had just ended earlier this week. (PTI)
