Sunny Deol, Bollywood actor and BJP candidate from the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency, took to the streets of Hari Nagar under West Delhi constituency in support of party nominee and sitting MP Parvesh Singh Verma adding the star value. A huge crowd lined up to catch a glimpse of the much-popular actor who recently took his political plunge. He was showered with flower petals and people were busy taking his pictures.
Sporting an olive-green shirt and blue jeans, Deol reached the venue almost three-and-a-half hours behind schedule and started the roadshow around 5.30 pm from the Hari Nagar bus depot, which passed through Jail Road in Tilak Nagar before culminating at Raja Garden. He commenced the road show atop a truck, which carried a hand pump, and few metres from the bus depot. Later climbed atop a Range Rover along with Verma and BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa.
As the cavalcade was passing through the streets, songs from the movie Border —starring Deol -- and his dialogues from the film Gadar were played in the backdrop. In the Sikh dominated seat, Deol greeted the crowd by ‘Jo bole so nihaal’. People carrying cutouts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Verma and Deol were seen walking in the crowd.
However, this procession led to massive traffic jam on both the carriageways of Jail Road because of the roadshow while in Rajouri Garden, a vehicle carrying mediapersons and Verma supporters was stopped by police for playing loudspeaker after 10 pm and they were dispersed.
