Amid "Avengers" Craze, Akhilesh Yadav Sees "Endgame" For Uttar Pradesh BJP
At a time when movie-goers the world over are scrambling for tickets to the latest Avengers movie, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Friday 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," he posted on Twitter, attaching an image of the words "Mahagathbandhan Sarkar" etched against a blue background in the style of Marvel Studios.
The reference is to "Avengers: Endgame", the latest installment of Marvel Studio's Avengers franchise that shows a team of ragtag superheroes teaming up against the mighty Thanos after he has used the Infinity Stones to eliminate half of all life across the universe. However, in Akhilesh Yadav's alternate universe of Uttar Pradesh, it is three political parties -- the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal -- that have come together against the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections.
