Sanjay Dutt denies contesting LS poll, extends support to sister Priya Dutt
Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has denied the rumors that he was contesting in coming Lok Sabha elections. He extended the full support to his sister Priya Dutt, who is a Congress candidate from Mumbai Northwest constituency.
Pleading everyone to cast their vote in the coming Lok Sabha elections, Sanjay said in his tweet “The rumor about me contesting for the Lok Sabha elections is not true. I stand with my country and in full support for my sister Priya Dutt. I urge everyone to come out in maximum numbers and cast their votes for our nation!”
Sanjay Dutt is no new to electoral politics, he was a Samajwadi Party candidate for Lucknow Parliamentary constituency in 2009. However, he had to withdraw his name after the court refused to suspend his conviction under the Arms’ Act.
Earlier this month, Salman Khan also put an end to all speculations of him entering the political arena and tweeted, “Contrary to the rumors I am not contesting elections nor campaigning for any political party.”
Sanjay and Salman made it very clear that they are not participating in the big race this year, they did, like many other Bollywood celebrities, urge people to vote.
A few days back Prime Minister Narendra Modi had urged many Bollywood celebrities to create awareness for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and ask their fans to vote.
Prime Minister Modi had asked Salman, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, among many others to use their mass appeal to inspire the citizens to participate in the elections.
