Speaking to media at the Wankhede Stadium here, Ganguly said that the BJP had offered him a ticket to contest the polls.
"Yes, the BJP did make an offer. However, I have declined it. I won't be contesting the elections," he said.
He has said that his "place is cricket ground, not in the Parliament."
On Saturday, it was reported that BJP has offered a ticket to Ganguly to contest the Lok Sabha election in 2014.
According to reports, the party has also promised to make Ganguly the sports minister if it comes to power next year.
