New Delhi: Music director Bappi Lahiri joining the BJP, days after Disco Dancer Mithun Chakraborty booked his Rajya Sabha seat on a Trinamool Congress ticket has kept the social media buzzing with comments, some snide, but most of them hilarious.
For good measure, Bappi Lahiri on Friday belted out a readymade jingle in the presence of BJP president Rajnath Singh, looking at him in amusement.
The words were thus: "Atalji Ko Pranaam, Advaniji Ko Pranaam, Rajnathji Ke Sapne Hongey Saakaar, Karenge Modi Chamatkar, Jai Bharat, Jai Bharat, Jai Bharat" and Rajnath clapped.
Bappi Lahiri had campaigned for Congress in 2004 elections. Asked by Rajat Sharma in India TV show Aaj Ki Baat, why he switched over, Bappi Lahiri said: "I made a song for Congress, I also made a song for Trinamool. But this time, in the innermost of my heart, I wanted to serve the country, so I joined BJP"
