Actor-turned-politician Sunny Deol, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) 2019 Lok Sabha election candidate from Punjab’s Gurdaspur, has that he does not know much about the Balakot airstrikes carried out by the Indian Air Force (IAF).
He admitted that he does not know much about the Balakot airstrikes or India-Pakistan relations.
The airstrikes in Pakistan’s Balakot were conducted on February 27, days after Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) carried out Pulwama attack.
When Sunny Deol was asked about Balakot airstrikes during a campaign rally on Tuesday, he said that he does not know anything about “these things”. “What strikes? I don’t know anything about these things or India’s relations with Pakistan. I only want to win and serve the country,” he told a news site.
The BJP candidate also said that if he wins the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency, he “maybe would have an opinion”. “Right now I don’t,” Sunny Deol said.
Praising Narendra Modi, Sunny Deol said that the prime minister has done a “good job” in last five years.
