BJP UP chief Keshav Maurya appears as Krishna in poster in Varanasi walls

BJP's new Uttar Pradesh chief Keshav Maurya has been depicted as Lord Krishna in posters put up by his party workers in Varanasi, while opposition leaders have been portrayed as Kauravas.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav,  Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati , Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi  and Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan have been portrayed as Kauravas stripping Draupadi in the poster. The face of the woman portrayed as Draupadi has, however, been blurred.

The poster is undersigned by BJP worker Rupesh Pandey.

A slogan is also written on a poster: 'Kalyug mein Keshav keval updesh nahin dete, Ranbhoomi mein yuddh karte hain.'

The satire on the opposition leaders comes at a time when Uttar Pradesh is gearing up for next year's crucial assembly polls.
