Following Sunny Deol distanced himself from Sidhu, quite a few netizens flayed the actor-turned-MP for his stance. As per reviews, Deep was Sunny’s aide when the latter contested from the Gurdaspur seat in Punjab for the duration of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Quite a few took to Twitter and posted an previous video of Sunny with Deep exactly where the former calls him like a “younger brother” in an interview. Quite a few men and women also shared Deep’s photographs with the Deol household.
On January 26 (Tuesday), 1000’s of protesting farmers stormed the Red Fort and hoisted a religious flag there. In a video launched by Deep, who was amid the protesters, the actor stated that the nationwide flag was not eliminated from the flagpole.
“To symbolically register our protest towards the new farm legislation, we place up ‘Nishan Sahib’ and a farmer flag and also raised a slogan of Kisan Mazdoor Ekta. The flag represents the country’s unity in diversity, he explained when pointing in direction of the ‘Nishan Sahib’, a symbol of Sikh religion noticed at all Gurdwara complexes,” he explained.
