Active in Punjab politics for a long time
Deep Sidhu was getting active in Punjab politics for a long time. He also formed an organization named ‘Waris Punjab’ in Punjab. Deep Sidhu said that he will not contest elections but will make people aware about politics. However, Deep Sidhu was campaigning continuously for Simarjit Singh Mann, president of Shiromani Akali Dal Mann, Amritsar, ahead of the elections scheduled for February 20 in Punjab.
Name associated with Khalistani supporters
Simarjit Singh Mann has always been associated with the Khalistani movement. Deep Sidhu’s name had also started appearing in the Khalistani supporters somewhere since he started praising the Khalistani movement in the farmers’ movement.
Was once very close to the Deol family
Not only this, Deep Sidhu was also considered special in the Deol family i.e. the family of Bollywood actor Dharmendra. Deep Sidhu looked after the family work. In 2019, when Sunny Deol contested from Gurdaspur, Deep Sidhu was looking after all the work of his election. But after coming against the three agricultural laws, Deep Sidhu distanced himself from the Deol family and he was also seen speaking against the BJP.
