Ex-army man, Olympian, and Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is hugely popular among the youth of Rajasthan as well as of India. But now, Rajyavardhan Singh “Ra_THORe” is a superhero for rural Jaipur.
Rajasthan Bharatiya Janata Party president Madan Lal Saini has tweeted today, tagging re-electoral candidate Rajyavardhan, whose twitter handle is “Ra_THORe” (any Shahrukh and Avengers fan here?)-
भाजपा सांसद श्री @Ra_THORe ने जयपुर ग्रामीण लोस क्षेत्र को प्रगति के पथ पर बढ़ाया है। 'सबका साथ-सबका विकास' के मंत्र के साथ साफ नीयत से सही विकास किया है। आप सबसे अपील है कि 6 मई को लोकतंत्र के महापर्व में कमल का बटन दबाकर श्री @Ra_THORe को विजय बनाकर फिर एक बार मोदी सरकार बनाएं। pic.twitter.com/e4sLPyMR6V
