Narendra Singh Dhoni recently joined the Samajwadi Party in Lucknow. Narendra was also present at the press conference where he informed that he had taken his family's consent before joining the party.

"Soon after joining the BJP in 2009, I left because the party did not know how to respect its workers. The SP respects both its leaders and workers," claimed the elder Dhoni, who had also said that he had taken consent from his family ahead of joining the BJP before the 2009 Assembly elections.
