The Congress party had to remove a few lines from its campaign song for Lok Sabha elections 2019 after the Election Commission reportedly objected to those.

As per reports, the lines in the song were accusing the ruling BJP government of spreading communal hatred and pitching communities against each other.

After the EC's objection, the sources said that the necessary changes had been made and the song will be released on Sunday as per schedule.

The song is believed to have mentions of a variety of issues including demonetisation, women security and job situation.

The slogan for Congress party for the election is "Ab hoga NYAY" which is based on the NYAY scheme through which Congress has promised to give 72000 rupees every year to 20 per cent of India's poorest if Congress comes to power.

The Lok Sabha elections polling begin from April 11 and will be conducted in seven phases. The result will be declared on May 23.
