Do not forget to vote, Tiwari says in Bhojpuri

Bhojpuri actor Manoj Tiwari may be new to politics but he knows how to use his stardom to win voters in North-East Delhi constituency.

During padyatras, the BJP nominee has been singing songs and shaking a leg on tunes of percussion instruments with young voters and putting his art to best use. “Don’t forget to vote,” he said in Bhojpuri to Rohtash Nagar voters, who had gathered to catch a glimpse of the popular film star.

Sporting a saffron cap with a slogan – Modi for PM – the actor flashed a victory sign to residents as he passed through lanes in east Delhi colonies.

“The response is huge,” he said, pointing to the big help he got from the rally of BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on March 26.

“The roads and the condition of parks in east Delhi is deplorable,” he said, promising to beautify the constituency on the model developed by the Gujarat Chief Minister.

Addressing a road show in Seelampur, Tewari tried to woo Muslim voters and said, “For the development of the country, every Indian has to come forward.”

In Malkaganj, Timarpur and Mukherjee Nagar, he said parts of the city had been ignored. “We want every part of the city to be developed up to global standards,” he said.

During the padyatra, the busy super star got a request from some electorate to sing a song for them and even before he could oblige, his supporters started shouting a slogan, “Modi ki parchai hai, Manoj hamara bhai hai (Our brother Manoj is a reflection of Modi).”

At street corner meetings, Tiwari said the country needed Modi for rapid development. “The BJP is the only party which has declared its prime ministerial candidate. On Modi’s becoming the PM, the North-East Delhi constituency would gain a lot,” he said.
