This probably might be the highlight of today. Over excited Arnab Goswami calls Sunny Deol as Sunny Leone. Hilarious! 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/20tnqWL3qA— Pooja Taparia (@poojataparia) May 23, 2019
Sunny Leone appears to be quite amused by Arnab’s gaffe. She responded to him in a tweet saying, “Leading by how may votes???? ;)”
Leading by How many votes ???? ;) 😜— Sunny Leone (@SunnyLeone) May 23, 2019
The political fight in Punjab’s Gurdaspur is going to be closely watched by all as Bollywood star Sunny Deol is making his debut from here and has recently joined the BJP. He is facing competition from Sunil Jakhar of the Congress party.
Polling in Gurdaspur parliamentary constituency was held on May 19 in the 7th phase (last phase) of the general election 2019.
Ajay Singh Deol who is popularly known as Sunny Deol has been a crowd puller for his role in ‘patriotic’ films like Border and Gadar but the final result will show if he managed to get enough traction on the ground.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha election, Bollywood superstar Vinod Khanna of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – won by getting a margin of over 1.36 lakh votes. He had defeated Partap Singh Bajwa of the Indian National Congress (INC). Khanna had secured 482255 votes while Bajwa got 346190 votes.
However, after the death of Vinod Khanna in 2017, By-election was necessitated. Sunil Kumar Jakhar of the INC won the by-polls, defeating BJP candidate Swaran Salaria.
Sunil Jakhar, MP and three-time MLA from the Abohar assembly seat under Ferozepur Lok Sabha constituency is confident to retain his position.
