With Bollywood set to release a big-budget movie about Indian rappers in February, supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi seem to have decided to jump on the same train. A rap song, released on YouTube, calls on young voters to bring back ‘Modi Once More.’
The song is a roll-call of the claimed achievements of the government in the past five years. But knowing that it also needs to attack an increasingly united opposition, the song makes sure to take a dig at Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s 2014 interview with Times Now.
This, of course, is not the first time when BJP has used songs for election campaigning. In 2013, a “NaMo youth anthem” was released, referring to Modi as the “last air bender”.
