Former Bigg Boss 13 contestant and political analyst Tehseen Poonawalla got the tricolour inked on his arm, as he joined the Farmers’ Protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.
Tehseen took to Twitter and wrote, "The Indian National Flag, our tricolour Flag of India was adopted on this day in 1947 by the Constituent Assembly. My tricolour is my pride, my identity and the symbol of our India. My tricolour is what I live for!! Flag of India Jai Hind."
Poonawalla, a Congress ideologue/supporter/enthusiast who is very well-known for articulating his views on social media and mainstream news shows as well. He is married to Monica Vadera, who incidentally is Priyanka Gandhi’s husband Robert Vadra’s cousin, making him former Congress president Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law.
For those unversed, Poonawalla, touted to be the highest paid contestant for the reality show in season 13 was evicted within a week, however it wasn’t due to audience poll. Monica had said that her husband’s political and legal commitments required attention, and hence had to be out of the game.
It was soon after his entry in the Bigg Boss house that Poonawalla realized that he is not cut out for the show. In fact, he felt that his contribution was needed elsewhere in the world. "I remember when I had a fight with Siddharth Shukla, I asked Devoleena (Bhattacharya), who was then in the house that what was I doing? I told her that I was not cut out for these things. My battles are larger ones ...For the soul of India," he said.Tehseen Poonawalla moves SC seeking direction to Centre to open COVID-19 vaccinations for all
