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.
