A day before Independence Day, BJP's Gurdaspur MP Sunny Deol in a patriotic speech chanted 'Hindustan Zindabad' at Maharashtra's Nagpur.
The passionate speech by the actor-turned-politician was recorded while Deol was addressing at the 'Akhand Bharat Diwas' program. Furthermore, he assured people that he would be there to serve them.
He said, "We have to be a true Indian. You are the strength of this country. All of you are thinking that our country is great and moving forward. We have to keep this feeling alive. Hindustan was, is and always will be a Zindabad. We have to say Hindustan Zindabad hai, Hindustan Zindabad tha aur Zindabad rahega. We are true Indians."
The crowd responded to Deol's speech with a passionate cheer, and fervour.
Deol on July 26, rescued a 45-year-old woman identified as Veena Bedi after she was reportedly sold to a Pakistani man by a travel agent who lured her to Kuwait by promising a housekeeping job with Rs 30,000 per month salary to her. As per reports, the victim's family had sought help from actor-turned-politician Sunny Deol during his Kartarpur visit, saying that she was assaulted and kept in a confinement in Kuwait.
In a swift attempt, the BJP MP personally intervened and contacted the Ministry of External Affairs and brought the woman safely back to India to her home in Gurdaspur on Friday. Along with Sunny Deol, District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) and two NGOs, one based in Kuwait and the other having its office in Canada also helped in the rescue mission.
After the efforts of bringing back the woman from Kuwait, Sunny Deol's father and veteran actor Dharmendra took to Twitter and congratulated him. He asked his son and BJP MP Deol to do his job with dedication.
"Treat your job as your responsibility, son. God bless you," Dharmendra wrote to Twitter.
Last month, Deol became the focus of controversy after he appointed Gurpreet Singh Palheri from Punjab's Mohali district as his proxy to 'attend meetings and follow important matters' on his behalf in the constituency.
The non-political representative from Mohali, Gurpreet Singh Palheri is a film writer and producer by profession.
In an attempt to downplay the matter, Gurpreet Singh Palheri said that his appointment has been made for the local issues.
