Sunny Deol clarifies on appointment of representative, says it is to ensure smooth flow of work when he is out of the constituency

Many people had criticised Sunny Deol for this decision, saying he was running away from his duties as MP.

BJP MP from Gurdaspur constituency, Sunny Deol had to face a lot of criticism after he appointed a representative to attend meetings and follow important matters in his constituency during his absence. The actor-turned-politician issued a statement dated June 26 appointing Gurpreet Singh Palheri, resident of village Palheri in Mohali as his representative in Gurdaspur.


Attacking Deol for appointing a representative, Punjab Cabinet Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa had called it an act of betrayal. “Sunny Deol has betrayed voters of Gurdaspur constituency by appointing a representative”, said Randhawa. A similar line was taken by many people on social media who criticised Sunny Deol for this decision, saying he was running away from his duties as MP.

Seeing the controversy erupting on the appointment of his representative, Deol took to Twitter to clarify his stand.

Calling the controversy unfortunate, Deol explained that he appointed his Personal Assitant to ensure smooth flow of work when he is not present in his constituency. The intention of the same is to ensure that no work is disrupted or delayed when he is not in the constituency, and to ensure that the work flows smoothly and he is updated about the same regularly when is out of Gurdaspur to attend parliament or for any other work. He added that as an elected representative he was genuinely committed to the cause of Gurdaspur.

Clarifying on his appointment as Deol’s representative, Palheri said that Deol wanted to be available to the people of Gurdaspur round the clock, therefore, he made the appointment. He said that a whole team has been prepared by Deol. “All he wants to say is that we are available 25×7. It is wrong to assume that he is running away from his responsibilities. He is visiting the constituency regularly and will continue to do it. He has prepared a team and we are a part of it. I am not the lone representative. The letter is irrelevant in that context. He simply means that every ground level worker can be approached in Gurdaspur and he will help you”, said Palheri.
