Hyderabad: A face that has gained visibility alongside Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav is Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's look-alike. He has been traversing with Akhilesh during his campaigns for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Wondering who is this doppelganger of Yogi Adityanath? He is Suresh Thakur.

Thakur can be seen on the dais of Akhilesh during his rallies and also travels with him. However, he does not give any speeches, only waves when Akhilesh engages with the crowd.

Thakur, a resident of Lucknow in the state of Uttar Pradesh wanted to contest against union minister Rajnath Singh From Lucknow. He had filed his nomination from Moulik Adhikar Party, but it was rejected by the Election Commission.

Reports suggest that in 2017, Thakur was sacked from a government job. In protest against his losing the job, he shaved his head.

As he realised that his efforts were not bearing fruit, he plunged into politics. However, after his nomination was rejected, he reached out to Akhilesh, who asked him to join the party.

In a picture shares on Akhilesh's Twitter handle, the SP chief can be seen sharing a meal with Suresh on an aircraft. Taking a dig at Adityanath, he said, "Jab unhone hamaare jaane ke baad mukhyamantri aavaas ko ganga jal se dhoya tha, tab hamne bhe tay kar liya tha ki ham unko puri khilaenge! (When he washed the house of the CM with the holy water of river Ganga after our departure, we had also decided that we would feed him puris!)”

Another picture followed where both can be seen standing near the aircraft taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ambitious project, the Kashi-Kyoto project, which aims at developing the ancient temple town of Varanasi like that of Japan's Kyoto.
