Sunny Deol may fight on BJP ticket from Amritsar | Punjab Polls
We earlier reported that Sunny Deol may join BJP at the right moment. There is a buzz in BJP circles that the saffron party is roping in Bollywood star Sunny Deol to contest assembly polls from Amritsar East constituency opposite Navjot Singh Sidhu. Sidhu’s wife Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who was elected as an MLA from the constituency in the 2012 polls, had announced that her husband would contest from here on a Congress ticket.
Dr Sidhu recently joined the Congress after leaving the BJP. If the Deol candidature does come through, it will be an interesting contest between the two famous sons of Punjab. The Ruling BJP-SAD combine is facing tough challenge from both AAP and Congress as it tries to deflect anti-incumbancy against Badals.
In addition BJP may field super star singer Hans Raj Hans from Jalandhar West. But insiders in BJP say the Sidhu couple have disappointed the party leaders and they are not in favor of bringing in another star.
Sunny Deol has not reacted to the new and is busy promoting his son’s debut film tentatively titled Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas for which the hunt is on for a Delhi Girl to star opposite Deol Jr.
