UP: Comedian Shyam Rangeela has decided to contest against PM Modi from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat. However, he is facing difficulty in obtaining the nomination form, and he has accused the Varanasi district administration of this issue. Additionally, Rangeela has urged the Election Commission to issue directives regarding this matter.

Rangeela took to his social media account and wrote, "The process of obtaining nomination forms in Varanasi has been made so complicated that it has become very difficult to get the form. After waiting in line for hours, the election office said that you should first submit copies of the Aadhaar cards of ten proposers (including signatures) and their phone numbers, only then will you get the treasury challan form for the form."

"However, such a provision is not in accordance with the rules of the Election Commission. I request the honourable Election Commission to provide proper directions to the Varanasi district administration, strengthening our faith in the democracy of this country," he added.
