Harsimrat Badal Play Emotional Card for Votes, Gets Trolled over Social Media

February 1, 2017 | By

Chandigarh: In a move aimed at garnering votes, Harsimrat Badal who is a Central minister and wife of Punjab Deputy CM and SAD (Badal) chief Sukhbir Badal, made a desperate appeal to voters to consider her family’s “sacrifice” and “Sewa” during Badal Dal’s 10 years rule. Harsimrat Badal took to social media and uploaded an emotional appeal saying that the Badal family was ‘so dedicated to serve the people’ that thy forgot about their children and family relations also. She said that Sukhbir Badal did not even bother about his health during last decade ‘in order to serve the people of Punjab’.

Harsimrat Badal’s move was highly trolled over the social media. Aam Aadmi Party supporters trolled Harsimrat Badal saying that people would give the ruling family “much-needed rest for the next 10 years”.

Seen as a last-ditch effort to woo voters, Harsimrat, attired in an orange and yellow suit with head covered, started the moving appeal by invoking the Gurbani in a video on Monday. The video began trending on social media soon after but ended up evoking sarcasm by netizens, mostly AAP supporters.

Hours after the video started trending on social media and it was aired by Punjabi news channels, a “reply video” created by an unidentified AAP supporter mocked at Harsimrat’s appeal, offering a “solution” to her grievances, notes a report in Hindustan Times (HT).

The Sikh man in the video appealed to voters to be “kindhearted” and not vote for the Badals so that the family members can spend time with each another. “We are selfish people. Harsimrat ji is our sister. She has spoken so emotionally. Even got emotional listening to her,” he says in the video, keeping a straight face.

“For 10 years we have been demanding Sukhbir paaji work for us. This time, we should give him all the rest he needs. We should not cast a single vote in his favour or for any Akali so that he does not have so many responsibilities,” the man says.

“After all, family comes first. People will force Sukhbir paaji and Harsimrat bhenji to contest but we must make sure they don’t win so that they can spend time with their family,” he adds.
