India Elections : Salman Khan exhorts people to vote for Congress

Salman Khan made a surprise appearance as Congress campaigner in Uttar Pradesh.

Bollywood star Salman Khan spent his weekend wooing voters for Congress nominee Anu Tandon in this Lok Sabha constituency of Uttar Pradesh.

The star, who is quite a rage with youngsters, drew fabulous crowds at each of the five Holi Milan functions, organised by Tandon to give a fillip to her political ambitions.

Despite being a first timer, Tandon has earned a lot of goodwill with the people in this largely rural and under-developed constituency, which lies sandwitched between Uttar Pradesh’s two leading citites – Lucknow and Kanpur.

Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan kick-started his campaign for Annu Tandon, Congress party candidate from Unnao Lok Sabha constituency on Sunday. Salman covered a distance of nearly 100 km in a chopper and addressed five meetings in Takiya, Safipur, Hasanganj, Purwa and Bangarmau across the district.

He also appealed to people to cast their vote on the day of polling. “This is the election season, therefore I would like to tell you that vote for the candidate who is willing to do something for you people selflessly,” Salman said.

Though the actor refrained from making a direct comment in wake of the model code of conduct, he, while indicating towards Tandon, said that she was capable and willing to serve the people of Unnao.
