Joking around : A Yogi Adityanath look-alike is travelling with Akhilesh Yadav
Donned in saffron robes, much like UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath,the ‘baba’ can be seen accompanying Akhilesh Yadav for rallies all across the state. The bald satirist can also be seen in pictures uploaded by Yadav on Twitter.
The ‘baba’ was introduced by the former CM and current Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday. Since then, he can be seen in every SP-BSP rally, standing there as Yadav mocks the Yogi regime.“We cannot bring fake God but we bring a ‘baba’ ji. He has left Gorakhpur and is telling truth about the government to everyone in the state,” Yadav wrote on Twitter.
SP, BSP and Ajit Singh-led Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) are contesting the Lok Sabha polls in Uttar Pradesh as an alliance. As per the seat-sharing arrangement, BSP, SP, and RLD are contesting 38, 37 and three Lok Sabha seats respectively in the state
The ‘baba’ was also seen in UP’s BJP office last year. But opportunism seems to have won Akhilesh Yadav this battle. His new tactic comes as an entertaining aspect of his rallies.
