New Delhi: Actor Sunny Deol joined Bharatiya Janata Party in presence of Union Ministers Piyush Goyal and Nirmala Sitharaman. He is likely to be the BJP candidate from Gurdaspur in Punjab.

After joining the party, the actor said: The way my Papa worked with and supported Atal ji, I am here today to work with and support Modi ji. My work will do the talking.

After the meeting last week, which fuelled huge speculation, Sunny Deol had been non-committal.

He arrived at the Bhartiya Janata Party office for joining BJP.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, BJP had won this seat after fielding actor Vinod Khanna.

Khanna passed away in April 2017. Later on, the seat went to Congress’ Sunil Kumar Jakhar after By-election. The party has fielded Jakhar again from this seat.

Earlier in 2004, Dharmendra had also represented BJP from Bikaner Lok Sabha constituency and won the seat.

Dharmendra’s wife Hema Malini is a member of the BJP and sitting MP from Mathura.

Voting began on Tuesday across 117 Lok Sabha constituencies spread over 15 states and Union Territories as the third – and largest – phase of the mega seven-phase electoral exercise kicked off.
