Lucknow: It is soon election time in Uttar Pradesh and the ideological battles between political parties resume through cheeky songs. The last track comes from Bhojpuri singer Neha Rathore.
Rathore’s new song “UP Mein Ka Ba” is a response to “UP Mein Sab Ba” by BJP MP and singer-actor Ravi Kishan, where he praised outgoing government Yogi Adityanath.
However, Neha Rathore criticized the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and questioned the development achieved under him over the past five years.
In her song titled “UP Mei Ka Ba” (What’s in UP?), the Bhojpuri singer attacked the state government over issues such as the handling of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Covid-19, Lakhimpur Kheri violence and the Hathras rape case.
Rathore shared the song on his Twitter account and Youtube channel on Sunday, a day after Ravi Kishan released his song titled “UP Mei Sab Ba” (UP Has Everything).
In his song, the Gorakhpur MP praises the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh in a bid to woo voters ahead of the upcoming assembly elections in the state.
He sings, “Yogi ke sarkar ba, vikas ke bahaar ba, sadakan ke jaal ba, kaam bemisal ba, Je kabhu na rahal qui ab ba…. apradhi ke jel ba, bijli relam rel ba, Corona gayil har ba, Je kabhu na rahal qui ab ba…. UP mein sab ba… Nivesh jordar ba, badhal rojgar ba“(There is a Yogi government in the state, there is development, roads and electricity in the state. The criminals are behind bars and there are no cases of COVID in the state. ‘UP and investment and employment rate have increased in the state. There is everything in UP).
Addressing Ravi Kishan’s claims, Rathore sings: “Khatam rojgar ba.. Corona se lakhan mar gayil le, laashan se Ganga bhar gayale… Mantri ke betuva badi rangdar ba, kisanan ke chhati pe rondat motar car ba, ae chaukidar, bolo ke zimmedar ba?… UP me ka ba“(There are no jobs in the state, hundreds of thousands of people died from COVID and Ganga was full of bodies. The minister’s son has an attitude, he broke his car on the farmers. ‘Chaukidar’, who is responsible for this?) .
