If you thought saffron politics was all about singing bhajans, think twice.

Close on the heels of the UPA’s “Bharat Nirman” campaign, a music concert is set to rock the national capital on May 31. The theme of the concert is “Modi for PM.” The campaign song, “NaMo NaMo,” positioning Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as a prime ministerial candidate for the next general election, has elements of metal, rock and folk music.

“Only the people seriously interested in politics listen to political speeches,” said Tejendar Singh Bagga, a former BJP activist and founder of the community “Modi-Fying India,” which is organising the event. “We have decided to take the campaign to the people through other things which touch their lives,” he said. The group had recently launched “Narendra Modi tee shirts” and is doing brisk business.

“Now, we are organising a rock concert to launch our song to campaign for Narendra Modi’s prime ministership,” Bagga said. While the first song will be in Hindi, the group plans to launch one song every month in other vernaculars, including Bhojpuri, Tamil and Bengali.

“Panchtarni Music in Exile,” a Kashmiri rock band featuring Rahul Tikoo and Ashish Bhat, will perform at the event.

“This is a piece of fusion music, encompassing all these elements from metal, rock and folk and is a very catchy one,” said Tikoo. The band has already recorded the song at a studio in Gurgaon.

“On this occasion, we will also launch the cover page of the comic on Narendra Modi as well as stickers saying I support Narendra Modi as prime minister,” he added. The group has already started online registration for the concert through its Facebook page. Bagga said he was holding talks with various other bands to launch the song in different languages.

The community page of “Modi-Fying India” states the vision of the group. “Through Modi-Fying India we aim to bring you the road map to build a transformed India under the able leadership of Narendra Modi.

His key areas of focus have been to work towards transforming the field of agriculture, industry and service sectors, it says.
