BJP Fields Sunny Deol From Gurdaspur Seat. Twitter Kills It With Crazy Memes And Jokes

Darpan News Desk IANS, 23 Apr, 2019
  • BJP Fields Sunny Deol From Gurdaspur Seat. Twitter Kills It With Crazy Memes And Jokes

Actor Sunny Deol joined the saffron party earlier in the day saying he was impressed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 

The Bharatiya Janata Party has fielded actor Sunny Deol from Gurdaspur seat in Punjab for the Lok Sabha elections. Releasing its 26th list Tuesday, the party also declared the names of Som Prakash and Kirron Kher for the Hoshiarpur and Chandigarh seats respectively.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Earlier in the day, Deol joined the saffron party in the presence of Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Piyush Goyal in New Delhi, saying he was impressed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 

“The way my father (film star Dharmendra) was attached with Atalji, today I have come to join Modiji,” said Deol.

 
 
 
 

“Whatever I can do for this family (BJP), I will do it….I won’t talk, I will show you through my work,” Deol added.

 

The actor had met BJP national president Amit Shah last week, sparking speculation that the party might field him from Punjab.

 
 
 
 

He will be contesting against sitting Congress MP Sunil Jhakhar, who had wrested the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat from the BJP in a bypoll held in 2017 following the death of actor Vinod Khanna. Jakhar had defeated Swaran Singh Salaria by a record margin of over 1.93 lakh votes.

 

While everyone waits (or, maybe not) for the announcement of Deol’s candidature, here are the tweets you need to see:

 

One of the most famous dialogues of Deol is ‘Tareekh Pe Tareekh’ from Damini, and ′Yeh dhai kilo ka haath jab kisipe padtha hai na, toh aadmin ut-tha nahi uthh jaata hai’.
