To borrow Winston Churchill’s phrase, MP Sunny Deol stays a ‘riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma’.

The actor is seldom seen in his parliamentary constituency which elected him with a whopping margin of 70,000 votes. His extraordinarily poor oratorical abilities have let him down on extra events than one. It is exactly as a result of this motive that he by no means delivers speeches every time he’s amongst his constituents. Reason sufficient why BJP strongman Amit Shah, who personally coordinated his election from New Delhi, requested him to cease giving speeches within the run-up to the polls. The actor was really requested to focus on street exhibits.

His visits to his constituency are certainly as uncommon as sighting an Igloo within the Sahara.

Residents have now began questioning his efficacy as a parliamentarian. They argue that if an MP just isn’t excited by touring his space and addressing the grievances of the folks, then what objective is he really serving?

His so-called advisers, and there are a lot of, declare that Sunny “Phaji” is busy doing the rounds of ministries within the nationwide capital making an attempt to get vital developmental initiates sanctioned.

However, a go to to floor zero proves not even a single mission has fructified until but.

Deol, not way back, had anointed his blue-eyed man and Bollywood cameraman Gurpreet Singh Palheri as his consultant to supervise the affairs of the constituency. The man was least excited by doing so and was seldom seen within the space. One high quality day, he made his intentions clear and left for Mumbai for good. Now, a bit of recognized employee has been named as his PA. On his half, the PA may be very selective in taking calls, a improvement which has not gone down properly with Phaji’s voters.

It is a properly documented indisputable fact that Deol was a reluctant contestant. His predecessor Sunil Jakhar had endeared himself to the constituents and was unlikely to lose until the BJP fielded some movie star. The get together’s in-house intelligence experiences had identified that Jakhar may very well be derailed solely and solely by an enormous time movie star and that’s the reason Deol was introduced in.

If Phaji was reluctant to contest, he’s now equally reluctant to go to the constituency.

Two massive ticket initiatives are mendacity in a limbo. They are the elevation of the three.6-km slender gauge rail monitor working by way of the municipal limits of Pathankot and a 40-km-long the Qadian-Beas rail hyperlink. Both these ventures require Central intervention which, in any case, just isn’t forthcoming. And sooner or later, too, what with the Covid-induced worry hanging within the air, the possibilities look bleak.

Post lockdown, ministers and MLAs have began visiting their respective meeting segments. With lower than 18 months to go for the state polls, this improvement naturally assumes significance. Cabinet minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa repeatedly holds conferences in Dera Baba Nanak whereas his ministerial colleague Tripat Rajinder Singh Bajwa, who has simply recovered from a bout of Covid, takes inventory of improvement works in Fatehgarh Churian. Likewise, Fateh Bajwa and his actor son Arjun, may be seen touring Qadian. In Sri Hargobindpur, Balwinder Laddi makes it some extent to examine the continuing initiatives each third day.

The parliamentary constituency has 9 seats out of which seven are represented by Congress legislators. A latest survey by a political get together revealed that out of all these seats, Randhawa is probably the most simply positioned. He has not solely decimated no matter opposition he had from the Akalis however has additionally ushered in a number of works within the wake of the Kartarpur hall. The most pronounced work he has completed is to herald the Seechewal mannequin of water harvesting in as many as 25 villages.
