BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi now has another contender for the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat --"Osama Bin Laden".

Meraj Khalid Noor, lookalike of slain al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden has announced his decision to enter the fray from the temple town to what he claims, is to check "communal forces" spreading its tentacles in the country.

Noor who hails from Patna earned popularity when he campaigned for Ramvilas Paswan-led LJP and Lalu Prasad's party RJD earlier wearing the attire of Osama, and sporting long beard like him.

He has floated his own group now named "Ram India" for establishing communal harmony in the country.

Alleging that the two leaders "used him" for their own political gains, Noor said today that he has decided to float his own group to take the fight for continuation of communal harmony in the society.

Addressing his members, Noor made the announcement yesterday to contest against Modi at Varanasi.

He announced that he will file his nomination a day before his "target" (Narendra Modi) on April 23 at Varanasi.

Noor, a businessman-turned-politician who is tall and bears uncanny resemblance to the former al-Qaeda chief has appealed to his supporters particularly the Muslim youth to accompany him to Varanasi for the big fight.

He said that it is not a question of win or loss in the polls but "our aim is to not let a divisive force take root in the holy place of Varanasi known for brotherhood between Hindus and Muslims."
