Sena counters Cong's 'Jai Ho' with Kai Ho

April 06, 2009 08:31 IST

To counter the signature campaign tune of the Congress, a version of the A R Rahman's Oscar winning song 'Jai Ho', the Shiv Sena has come up with their version of it called 'Kai Ho?'.

The song, loosely translated from Marathi as "What is this", was played today at a joint rally of the Sena-BJP combine held at the Shivaji Park in central Mumbai and had a dancing troupe performing a choreographed sequence to it.

The song composed and sung by music composer Avdhut Gupte speaks about the 10 terrorists who attacked the city on November 26, cheerleaders on cricket fields, farmers committing suicide and load shedding across the state.

Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray also attacked prime minister Manmohan Singh for bringing up the issue of the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition during  the release of the UPA manifesto.

"The issue is still in a court of law and he should face action for violation of election model code of conduct for raising the issue in public again," Uddhav said.

Uddhav, who had a case registered against him for allegedly making derogatory comments against Singh in an earlier rally, called him a "respected, admired and great Prime Minister". 

 "Have I insulted him?" Uddhav asked the audience in a lighter vein.
