Amethi (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Jan 15 (ANI): A poster portraying Congress President Rahul Gandhi as Lord Ram and Prime Minister Narendra Modi as ten-headed 'demon' king Ravana has created chaos in Uttar Pradesh's Amethi district.

The poster was witnessed at the Gauriganj railway station here on Sunday, a day before Rahul's visit to the city.

In the poster Rahul could be seen carrying a bow and a arrow, pointing towards Prime Minister Modi.

The inscription on the poster states Rahul an incarnation of Lord Ram who will bring 'Ram Rajya' in 2019 by winning the General election and defeating 'Ravan' Prime Minister Modi.

"Rahul ke roop mein bhagwan Ram ka Avtaar 2019 mein aayega Rahulraj (Ramrajya)" read the wording on the poster.

The poster is said to be displayed by a local named Abhay Shukla, who claims to have no connection with the Congress party.

"Prime Minister Modi promised us to bring black money back that is stashed abroad, but nothing happened. All the promises made by him were lies. We believe that in 2019, Rahul Gandhi will become the Prime Minister of the county and fulfill all the promises," Shukla said.

The district Congress party denied putting up the poster or any link with Shukla.

Rahul is the Member of Parliament (MP) from Amethi, which is the pocket borough constituency of the Congress party. (ANI)
