    A couple from the south Indian city of Hyderabad opted for a unique wedding invitation card, appealing to guests to vote for Prime Minister Modi in the upcoming general election.

    The wedding card cover, which has gone viral on social media, reads "Our Gift is your Vote for Modi in 2019 Lok Sabha Elections." The groom, Yande, a die-hard Modi supporter, said he had a tough time convincing his family and bride to print the appeal on their wedding card. 

    "I have high regard for Modi as he is a good leader. He is working hard for our nation and I think this is the way I can garner support for him in the coming general election," Yande Mukesh Rao told Sputnik.  

    The groom's father is feeling elated as he is now the talk of the town.

    "My father was a freedom fighter. So we always support and cherish national pride. I like BJP since the days of Vajpayee. Now I support Modi as I like his style of working," Subhash Rao Yande, the groom's father, told Sputnik.
