Don’t want to be a decorative piece, want to be a hardcore worker: Poonam Dhillon, Vice President BJP Mumbai

Actress Poonam Dhillon, who is a member of the BJP, said that she does not want to be a decorative piece and wants to be a hardcore worker as she was entrusted with the charge of Vice-President of Mumbai BJP.

Dhillon, who had joined BJP in 2004 said that she was not as active earlier as she had kids to look after. “I joined the party in 2004. However, because of various commitments or responsibilities, I was supportive, but I was not ready to take on a very active role. It wasn’t the right time as both my children were small… Now they are grown up and independent,” she said.

“I feel very strongly that the country needs dedicated people who have passion… rather than those who are in politics only for a career. I want to do my bit for my city and my country. That’s why I volunteered; now I can do anything that is required as I have the time,” Poonam told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

However, Dhillon’s appointment as the Mumbai BJP Vice President did not go down well with filmmaker Ashok Pandit who questioned her contribution to the party and the society.

In reply to Ashok Pandit’s tweet Dhillon said, “I think he should ask Ashish Shelar, because I didn’t make the appointment. I have definitely been a silent worker. I did not call any media for the appointment announcement. I don’t believe in glorifying things and milking opportunities.”

She tweeted:

While some people agreed with Ashok Pandit,

there were others who supported Dhillon.

Dhillon wants to work for the cause of farmers and help the families of the farmers who commit suicide.

“I’ve been doing work for the farmers of Maharashtra. I will continue that. The farmers who commit suicide, their families are left so bereft. That’s one of the causes I work on… to uplift their aged parents, young wives or children. Farmer suicide is an issue I wish gets eradicated, but in the meanwhile, if there’s little help that we can do for the families, that is something I actively want to do,” she said.
