Samajwadi Party chief and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has found links between Marvel’s Avengers series and Indian ongoing Lok Sabha elections. Samajwadi Party head attacked rival Bhartiya Janata Praty on Friday referring it with Avengers’ finale part of the series. Taking a jab at BJP Akhilesh Yadav tweeted his own version of an "endgame" to come.

"Over the last five years, the BJP has destroyed every pillar of democracy. But the Endgame has begun. MahaGathbandhan Sarkar. Coming soon," Yadav posted on Twitter, attaching a photograph of the words "Mahagathbandhan Sarkar" etched against a blue background in the style of Marvel Studios.

Slamming BJP taking reference to ‘Avengers: Endgame’, the latest instalment of Marvel Studio’s Avengers franchise that shows a team of multiple superheroes coming together against the villain Thanos after he has used the Infinity Stones to end half of all life across the universe.

In Akhilesh Yadav’s universe of Uttar Pradesh, there are three political parties-- the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal (Avengers Heros)-- that have come together against the BJP and Narendra Modi (Thanos) in the Lok Sabha elections.

In 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won as many as 71 seats across the state amid an overarching Narendra Modi wave, leaving just nine for its political rivals.
