PM Modi, Amit Shah lookalikes hit streets to gather support for BJP.

Ahead of polling in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur and Phulpur constituencies, lookalikes of PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah are leaving no stone unturned to drum up their support for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The bypolls were necessitated after CM Yogi Adityanath and Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya vacated the Gorakhpur and Phulpur seats respectively, following their election to the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council. 

"We have come from Delhi. My name is Ranveer, and we have been visiting all the markets for a week, talking to people. The response has been warm," the prime minister lookalike said. "We have received so much love from the public that I think we will win by five lakh votes," the Amit Shah of the pair said.

The two constituencies will go to polls on March 11. The saffron party has fielded Kaushalendra Singh Patel from Phulpur and Upendra Dutt Shukla from Gorakhpur against the SP's Pravin Nishad and Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel respectively.
