Sunny Deol causes embarrassment to Modi with shocking reply on Balakot airstrikes


When the BJP fielded Sunny Deol from Gurdaspur in Punjab as its Lok Sabha candidate, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had showered praises on the actor’s love for the nation and its security.

Taking to Twitter, Modi had written, “What struck me about @iamsunnydeol is his humility and deep passion for a better India. Happy to have met him today. We are all rooting for his victory in Gurdaspur!.” He had gone on to add after meeting Sunny Deol, “We both agree: Hindustan Jindabad tha, hai, aur rahega.

Days later, Sunny Deol has caused a huge embarrassment for Modi by publicly acknowledging that he knows nothing about India’s Balakot air strikes even though Modi has been repeatedly seeking votes by invoking this episode of India’s military incursions inside Pakistan.

In the viral video, Sunny Deol was asked if the Balakot airstrikes will help the country to stay united. The famous actor replied, “Which strikes?” When the reporter tried to explain to him, Sunny folded his hands and made a public confession, “See I don’t have knowledge of these things. I have come here to contest elections. When I win from here, I will be able to discuss many things with you then.”

The video, however, has become a topic of intense social media conversations.
