BJP MP Sunny Deol appoints representative, Congress slams him
New Delhi, July 2 (IBNS): Amid reports that BJP MP Sunny Deol has appointed a representative in his parliamentary constituency Gurdaspur, who would "attend meetings" and follow "important matters" related to the city in his absence, the Congress party has attacked the actor-turned-politician over the move and said he has performed a 'betrayal of highest order' with the people.
Gurpreet Singh Palheri will perform all the activities in Sunny's absence from the constituency, media reports said.
"I hereby appoint Gurpreet Singh Palheri, son of Supinder Singh, resident of village Palheri, district Mohali, Punjab, as my representative to attend meetings and follow important matters pertaining to my Parliamentary constituency, Gurdaspur (Punjab), with concerned authorities," a letter signed by Deol read, as reported by NDTV.
The Congress attacked Deol over his decision.
Congress leader Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa tweeted: "Betrayal of the highest order is when you defy the people who had voted you to become an MP. Shame on you @iamsunnydeol ! Its disgraceful to say the least! @BJP4India #Gurdaspur."
Sunny joined the BJP before the polls.
He won the Lok Sabha polls on debut.
