[India], Apr 17 (ANI): Actor-turned-politician and BJP candidate from Gorakhpur, Ravi Kishan on Wednesday said that he finds nothing wrong in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath invoking the name of Lord Hanuman during election rallies.
He, however, finds Samajawadi Party leader Azam Khan's comments against his party colleague Jaya Prada more objectionable than other things.
"Yogiji took the name of Bajrangbali, what is wrong in that. He takes the name every day being a monk. On the other hand, he (Azam Khan) passed such vulgar comments on Jaya Prada, only because she came to fight elections from Rampur seat. How can such statements be justified, decency is expected in a democratically held election. They know they are losing and that is why they are passing such comments," said Ravi Kishan while talking to reporters.
"I brought her (Jaya Prada) to Rampur. You are a witness that I did not allow anyone to touch her body. It took you 17 years to identify her real face but I got to know in 17 days that she wears khaki underp****," Khan had said on Sunday.
Ravi Kishan also requested voters from the Bhojpuri community who hail from Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh to cast their votes on the behalf of BJP stating that, Panja (hand) (Congress), Haathi (elephant) (Bahujan Samaj Party), Lalten (lamp) (Rashtriya Janata Dal) and Cycle (Samajwadi Party) have ruined Bihar and Uttar Pradesh for decades.
"The gathbandhan is a big flop. Caste politics has stopped in UP and Bihar, people have seen through their game and will give BJP a historic victory," he said.
Voting in Uttar Pradesh is taking place in seven phases from April 11 to May 19. Counting of votes will be held on May 23. (ANI)
