As the political parties are gearing up for the assembly election in Uttarakhand and indulging in pleasing people with their manifestos and promises, a video has surfaced on social media showing Chief Minister Harish Rawat as ‘Baahubali’, a fictional character in the movie of the same name that released in the year 2015. The video claims that Harish Rawat is the better choice as CM for the state.
The video that is going viral on the social media also features Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janta Party President, Amit Shah.
In the video named as ‘Saviour- the beginning’, Modi is looking rather astonished when Rawat appears like ‘Baahubali’ and exhibits his ‘strength’ in a dramatic manner. The ending in the video comes up with a tagline that says, Dil ki sune, Harish Rawat ko chune (Listen to your heart, vote for Harish Rawat).
Rawat, however, has said that he has got nothing to do with the video which also showcases party’s symbol in some shots but the video in the last two days has been viewed by more than two lakh times and has been shared 5,000 times.
The state will go to polls on February 15 and it can be seen as the direct fight between the BJP and Congress. In the last election, the Congress had won 32 seats against the BJP’s 31, but the latter formed the government with the help of independent members.
