Actor-turned-politician and Lok Janshakti Party leader Chirag Paswan claimed on Tuesday that he was a fan of Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi even before he entered politics.

Chirag Paswan will contest the Lok Sabha polls from Jamui seat in Bihar.

“Modi impressed me and I am his fan,” Paswan said while campaigning in Jamui, a Maoist affected district.

Chirag Paswan said that Modi is his choice like millions of youth across the country. "Every youth of the country wants to see Modi as the next prime minister," he said.

He said the Modi wave was visible in Jamui and across the country. "I am sure this Modi wave will defeat all rivals in," Chirag said.

Chirag praised Modi’s Gujarat development model. “Modi’s development is real, unlike others who do it only on paper," he said.
