Arjun Rampal campaigns for BJP: Twitter wonders 'Why did they leave out Bobby Deol, Rahul Roy?'
Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal on Tuesday met senior BJP leaders at the party headquarters here and is expected to campaign for it in assembly elections in five states.
Rampal, a model turned actor, met the party general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and later heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he was impressed with the work of his government and wanted to work for the party.

Vijayvargiya said Rampal can campaign in assembly elections. Asked if he will join the party, the BJP leader said it could be possible.
Soon after the news came out, many took to social media to react to the surprise development:
Thanks Arjun Rampal. You getting to be a part of BJP is a good omen that even Uday, Tusshar, Aftab and I may also get a chance to campaign.

It makes sense for Arjun Rampal to join the BJP. It's a party that welcomes anyone who is mediocre and devoid of any talent whatsoever.

BJP is clearly running short on budget, while opposition roped in Superstar Kejriwal for promotions, BJP could manage Arjun Rampal & Jackie
