Veteran actor Dharmendra is leaving no stone unturned to garner support for his son Sunny Deol who is the BJP candidate from Gurdaspur. The legendary actor is making statements which could pose trouble for chief minister Capt. Amarinder Singh.
During a poll rally in Gurdaspur’s Batala on Thursday the veteran actor assured the masses of that he would not only approach the Centre but also Capt. Amarinder Singh for their demands.
In a video recording of his poll campaign, Dharmendra was heard saying, “Captain Sahib is my friend. I will have a Patiala peg with him and get your demands fulfilled.”
Terming Sunny Deol a Lion, he said his son was simple and didn’t know how to speak. ‘I would like to say that only a simple man serves people, the rest loot them’, he was heard saying in the video.
Notably, Sunny Deol is up against Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar who is also the sitting MP from Gurdaspur. Sunil Jakhar had wrested the seat from the BJP after the demise of four-time MP Vinod Khanna.
