Kolkata: Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has denied all speculations about joining politics and contesting in the forthcoming Loksabha elections.

"How many times I have said no. It's not true at all," a visibly irritated Ganguly said.

"It is not true. I am not good enough for politics," Ganguly told reporters in Kolkata at the end of the Bengal-Assam Ranji Trophy one-day encounter at the Eden Gardens here on being asked about the prospects of his joining politics.

Asked whether he would join the Samajwadi Party, Sourav quipped "if I have to join politics, I have my own state." Speculation was fuelled when his wife, Dona, indicated in Allahabad that he was being wooed to fight the coming Lok Sabha elections from Uttar Pradesh.

Dona, a noted Odissi dancer, said the West Bengal government definitely wanted her husband to step into politics, while a minister in U P had invited him to contest the elections from that state.
