A poster showing Rahul as Ram and Prime Minister Narendra Modi as Ravana has led to a controversy ahead of the Congress President's visit.

Rahul is the Member of Parliament (MP) from Amethi, which is the pocket borough constituency of the Congress party.

Enroute Amethi, Rahul Gandhi began a two-day trip to his Lok Sabha constituency by offering prayers at Churwa Hanuman Temple in his mother Sonia Gandhi's constituency of Rae Bareli. These people are also misleading the people of Amethi and we have to tell them about the development work done by us.

The poster was witnessed at the Gauriganj railway station here on Sunday, a day before Rahul's visit to the city.

He also alleged that they were attacked by the Congress workers.

BJP general secretary Arun Singh said if Gandhi was serious about visiting temples, he would have gone to one for blessings when he was elevated to the post of party president.

"Prime Minister Modi promised us to bring black money back that is stashed overseas, but nothing happened".

Asked how he viewed Gandhis first visit to the state as Congress chief, the chief minister said, "My advise to Rahul is that he should focus more on politics of development". "Look at the plight of Amethi that has been nursed by four generations of the Nehru-Gandhi family", the chief minister told reporters in Gorakhpur.

Aimed at the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the message on the poster reads: "Rahul roop mein bhagwan Ram ka avatar, 2019 mein ayega Rahul Raj. (Rahul is the incarnation of Lord Ram, Rahul Raj will be seen in 2019)". "Amethi, Rae Bareily and other districts would have changed", he said.
