Gul Panag and Kirron Kher are contesting in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from the Chandigarh constituency. The rivals are now having a twitter war which was sparked off by a stray tweet by Gul.
Apparently Gul tweeted, “Doubt if I’ll have the energy to run around like this and serve my people when I’m 60. I guess that’s why there’s normally a retirement age.”
To which, the BJP candidate Kirron Kher replied “For me life starts at 60 and I have the blessings of my 101-year-old father to fight this contest and emerge victorious.”
When asked about it, the Aam Aadmi Party candidate Gul said “I’ve no idea where when and how this started! My Twitter page is open to the public. I’ve nothing but the deepest love respect and admiration for her.”
She also said her tweet was about herself and not intended at anyone else. “I was speaking only for myself and what this election campaign means to me. My stamina energy and vigour are coming in handy during these times of rigorous campaigning,” said the actress.
