"L K Advani [ Images ] is my idol and I follow his ideals. I want to serve the party and work for the betterment of the people of the state," Narendra told reporters after joining the saffron party.
To a question on what inspired him to join politics, Narendra said when he saw thousands of deprived people around him, he felt like helping them out.
"And with Atal Bihari Vajpayee [ Images ] and L K Advani in its ranks, I find the BJP to be the perfect platform from where I can work for the people," he said.
"I am also impressed with Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi's [ Images ] work in his state," the 38-year-old Narendra said.
He, however, parried a question when asked whether his cricketer brother would follow suit, saying this was a query the media should ask Mahendra Singh Dhoni [ Images ].
On whether he would contest the Assembly elections in Jharkhand which is under President's Rule now, he said, "I have not thought of it. Right now I have joined BJP and my first priority is to serve the party in whatever capacity. I will now campaign for our party's Ranchi candidate Ram Tahal Chaudhary."
