Irked by non-fulfilment of election promises by the actor-turned-politician Dharmendra, a students'
body in his parliamentary constituency Bikaner has threatened to prevent screening of movies
featuring him or his sons Sunny and Bobby Deol.
The Sanyukta Chhatra Sangarsh Samiti (SCSS) has alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
MP did not keep his promise to get the Bikaner university a grant of Rs.25 million.
"We would not allow any of his or his sons' films to be screened in Bikaner," Rajesh Singh, a
student of a local college, told.
"He has been repeatedly saying that he would arrange the grant for the university, but he has not
made any efforts.
"Besides, he has failed to keep several other promises. That is why, we would not allow the
screening of any film starring the Deols," an office-bearer of the student organisation said.
"Dharmendra is willing to jump to death for Basanti (in one of his hit films Sholay). But when it
comes to the students and people of Bikaner, he turns deaf, despite the fact that we are the people
who voted him to parliament," Kailash Sharma, another student said.
The organisation also passed a resolution saying it would not allow Dharmendra to enter
"We want our MP to visit us regularly. We don't want him to sit in Mumbai and do nothing for us,"
said D.R. Chaudhary, a local resident.
