Dutt, Shetty campaign for INLD candidate in Ellenabad

Sirsa: Sanjay Dutt who recently resigned as SP general secretary and his Bollywood colleague Suneil Shetty on Sunday took part in a roadshow to drum up support for INLD candidate Abhay Singh in Ellenabad Assembly constituency where a by-poll is slated for January 20.

However, the actors told reporters they had nothing to do with politics and had come to take part in the roadshow for the sake of Abhay whom they described as an "old friend".

A large crowd, including women and children, gathered to cheer the actors as the roadshow was held in 12 villages of the constituency.

Singh, the younger son of former Haryana Chief Minister Om Parkash Chautala, is pitted against Congress nominee Bharat Singh Beniwal on the seat where a by-election was necessitated after Chautala vacated it preferring to retain Uchana Kalan.
