In the run up to the third phase of Lok Sabha polls, the leaders of the political parties are promising unique things as BJP’s Gorakhpur candidate Ravi Kishan has said that he would set up a Bhojpuri film city in the district, if voted to power.

In an interaction with the reporters at the BJP office in Beniganj, the actor turned politician said, “An Memorandum of Understanding with state government has been already been signed to set up Bhojpuri film industry in sprawling 150-acre area with an outlay of ₹500 crores in the heart of city so that youths can pursue their dreams of earning name and fame in film industry.”

Gorakhpur is the home turf of UP CM Yogi Adityanath

While Ravi Kishan met party leaders at the office, he was later on accompanied by the BJP workers to take part in the Hanuman Shobha Yatra. Brahmin by caste and a native of Jaunpur district in UP, Ravi has his roots in the Gorakhpur’s Moonkhar village and he has said that he would be filing his nomination papers on April 23, when the third phase of polling will be underway.

Ravi Kishan would possibly be accompanied by UP CM Yogi Adityanath and the actor has also added that he would visit the Gorakhnath temple to offer prayers.

We are going to win 73 plus seats with historical win in the land of Baba Gorakhnath and CM Yogi. I will serve the people of Gorakhpur by keeping the Kharau (wooden slippers) of Yogi Ji,” said Ravi Kishan, whose seat of Gorakhpur goes to poll on May 19.
