A clearly overjoyed Prime Minister Narendra Modi had failed to resist the temptation of dancing to the tune of hit Bollywood song, ‘Balam Pichkari’, the day BJP cruised to a massive victory in the 16th Lok Sabha elections. He was joined by his trusted lieutenant Amit Shah and party president Rajnath Singh.
Everyone who saw the dance programme was surprised to see party patriarch LK Advani join the trio on the stage. A defeated party claimed that Advani could not bear the sight of Narendra Modi dance and take control of the entire stage. But highlighting the impromptu synchronisation of the dancing quartet, BJP cadres and supporters said that the sceptics were wrong in their assessment.
When requested to comment on the dance, former prime minister Manmohan Singh maintained his trademark stoic silence with his eyes intently observing Advani’s moves, perhaps wondering how an octogenarian can do a thumka with such finesse. Someone please tell him that what he sees is an animation spoof created by a popular news channel. Check it out yourself!
