The BJP ended a week of suspense on Saturday by naming Gorakhpur MP, Yogi Adityanath, as the chief minister designate for Uttar Pradesh. Adityanath’s name evoked sharp reactions from the opposition, but inspired a flurry of memes on Twitter.
Many spotted an “uncanny resemblance” between the saffron-clad yogi and Hollywood’s action star Vin Diesel. From photo combinations of the two to photoshopped images of Adityanath’s face on Diesel’s body, Twitter trolls kept the memes coming.
Yogi Adityanath fought Nizam of Deccan and saved Rajput girl Mastani. But libtard filmmakers would never show this. pic.twitter.com/WhrdsdgsWj— Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) January 28, 2017
