Congressmen brought out posters of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi portraying him as a gang leader exploiting the masses. The poster inspired by the movie 'Gangs of Wasseypur' goes: 'Gangs of Chorpur'.

The opposition Congress has now entered the ongoing poster campaign against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

Congress workers yesterday took out a procession in the city, carrying posters of Modi, inspired by the poster of the Bollywood film 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. 'Gangs of Chorpur' was the caption on the poster, and the tagline, put in Modi's mouth, told the people that they would be exploited till the next election.

In the poster Modi is seen killing cartoonist RK Laxman's 'Common Man' and the poster says ‘Agle election tak hum aapki aise hi lete rahenge’, in line with the movie’s tagline ‘Keh Ke Loonga’.

The procession was led by MLA Gyasuddin Sheikh. A donkey with a saffron belt was also paraded in the procession. Apart from Modi, the poster featured industrialist Gautam Adani as a member of the 'gang'.

"The theme was Modi government giving benefits to few industrialist and ignoring the common man. We have also written about benefits given to Tata and inability of Gujarat government to find out missing children in the state," Sheikh said.

Recently, posters supporting BJP leader Sanjay Joshi, Modi's bete noir within the party, had appeared in Gujarat. A poster comparing Modi with Bollywood vamps had appeared in Rajkot.
