New Delhi, April 28 : West Bengal’s Trinamool Congress has written to the Election Commission of India against the Bharatiya Janata Party for roping wrestler Dalip Singh Rana, popularly known as The Great Khali, for campaigning in 2019 Lok Sabha Polls, saying Khali holds a US citizenship.
Wrestler’ The Great Khali’ is campaigning for BJP’s Jadavpur MP candidate Anupam Hazra and the West Bengal’s Trinamool Congress in the letter states, ‘He(Khali) holds US citizenship, therefore,a foreigner shouldn’t be allowed to influence the minds of Indian electors.”
Hazra, who is BJP’s Jadavpur MP candidate, on Friday campaigned in Kolkata with Khali by his side, drawing a huge crowd. Khali was all smiles as he waved the cheering crowd.
“Khali is a very good friend of mine and has come here to stand by me just for the sake of friendship,” Hazra said while the roadshow was going on.
