Gurdaspur. September 28

The political storm kicked up by MP Sunny Deol's recent tweet praising the farm Acts is failing to calm down with the Congress MLAs of Pathankot and Gurdaspur, which form an integral part of the actor's parliamentary constituency, now deciding to stay away from meetings scheduled to be held to monitor the Central Government flagship schemes.

Going by the ministry's 'warrant of precedence', Union Minister Som Parkash is DISHA chairman in Gurdaspur while Deol is its co-chairman. In Pathankot, Deol himself is the chairman. All six MLAs of Gurdaspur, five of whom owe allegiance to the Congress, and three of Pathankot, out of which two are Congressmen, are ex-officio members. — TNS
