Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Apr 12 (ANI): Abhinandan Pathak, a lookalike of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, filed his nomination papers as an independent candidate from Lucknow Lok Sabha seat on Friday.
"I will also file nomination from Varanasi on April 26. I am not a dummy candidate. I am not against anyone but 'jumla'. After winning, I will support Rahul Gandhi's PM candidature," he said while talking to ANI after filing his nomination papers.
Pathak had supported Prime Minister Modi during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. However, he later joined the Congress party in the presence of Rahul Gandhi.
Pathak had campaigned for the Congress party in the recently held legislative elections in three states.
Miffed with the Congress over the denial of ticket, he filed his nomination as an independent candidate from Lucknow. (ANI)
