BJP’s much-publicised parivartan yatra, which was flagged off by Amit Shah two days ago, has become a topic of intense conversation on social media platforms because of association of bar dancers.
The video of bar dancer being used to woo the voters has gone viral on Twitter and Facebook.
On Monday, the yatra (road show) reached Tugana in Bagpat area of Uttar Pradesh. Senior party leaders including Sanjeev Balyan (minister in Narendra Modi’s cabinet) and Satyapal Singh (BJP MP) were expected to address the crowd.
But when they didn’t arrive at the venue at the scheduled time, the panic set in and the local leaders decided to entertain the crowd by employing a bar dancer.
A local BJP leader, wishing to be unidentified, told Janta Ka Reporter that the decision was taken because ‘we didn’t want crowds to leave.’
He said, “We saw what happened to Amit Shah ji’s rally in Lucknow in September, when lakhs of chairs remained unoccupied. We didn’t want the same to happen here particularly during our leaders’ speeches. There’s nothing wrong if we organised a little bit of entertainment for the crowd.”
