Kathga Khailya re : A Garhwali Poem by Narendra Singh Negi Against Corruption and Poems against Corruption from 150 countries (Part -2)

Sleepiness Nights Ahead for BJP B’cause of Kathga Khailyau Re Music Album by Negi


As the news is pouring from Dehradun and hills of Uttarakhand a new province of India that the sales of Album ‘Kathga Khailyo Re ‘ is picking up and the shopkeepers in crowded place are playing the deisc to attract customers. The Dhabawalas are playing ‘Kathga Khailyo Re’ discs . the village women and men including children are appreciating the songs of one of the famous most Indian Singers Narendra Singh Negi because people of Uttarakhand feel that Negi a legendary singer of India told the thinking of people’s grievances so perfectly and definitely openly. The teaching community which is back bone of influencing the people of Uttarakhand is very much appreciating the song of Narendra Singh Negi. Definitely with time the cassette disc will pick up the sales and the song will become folk song of hills of Uttarakhand and the popularity of song will definitely affect on the coming state election results of Bhartiya Janta Party the current ruling party of Uttarakhand province of India.

Definitely the song of Negi will inspire people to lay many questions before Bhartiya Janta Party :

1- What hhas Bhartiya Party did to check corruption at Gram Sabha (village councils 0level?

2- Why the Patvaris have increased bribes for Dakhil Kharij, and many pity jobs of people ?

3-Wht are there daily news about corruption at at all levels specially at village levels?

4- Why Bhartiya Janta Party accuses congress for corruption but does not take any step against their own Chief Minister of Bangalore province Yedurappa ? Why is there such double standard within Bhartiya Janta Party?

5- Why does Bhartiya Janta Party keep mum on corruptions acts of DMK and BSP?

With the popularity of Song against corruption and bribery by Narendra Singh Negi aginast corruption will ignite people to ask such questions to Bhartiya Janta Party.

The awareness of corruption definitely is a worrying point for Bharitya Janta Party. The BJP leadership knows the affectivity of Narendra Singh Negi’s songs. Negi’s music album “Nauchhami Narayna ‘ was released just before the last general election of province Uttarakhand and Congress had to loose the election.

BJP leadership is afraid that if Negi’s new album does change the perception of about BJP as the last album “Nauchhami narayni’ changed the perception then the defeat in coming election is definite.
