Sri Lankan singer Yohani de Silva’s “Menike Maga Hithe” which had taken the Indian music scene by storm, is now being used by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to boost the prospects of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh State Assembly elections.

Uttar Pradesh, among India’s largest States, will go to the polls on February 10. Polling will end on March 7.

Though the strongest contender in the Uttar Pradesh elections, the BJP is clearly taking nothing for granted given the economic setback due to the COCID 19 pandemic, fall in production of goods and services and unrest in the agricultural sector.

But in brilliant moves, the BJP’s poll wizards have harnessed every popular brand to sell their party in the competitive political marketplace. Even young Sri Lankan singing sensation Yohani de Silva’s hit “Manike Mage Hithe” has not been overlooked.

The song had grabbed the attention of Superstar Amitabh Bachan and once it did that, another superstar Salman Khan fell for it and even sang it along with Yohani at a public show. Yohani went on to become a rage thereafter and has sung the title song of the forthcoming Bollywood film “Shiddat”.(newsin)

    They(BJP) are being deserted by their MLAs and MPs in UP. Hope this tune will lure them back to the fold!

    Thanks anyway. Who cares. After all country needs dollars.

    It certainly would be catchy . Just like the hit song played in 3 wheeler and wayside shops in 2019 in SL. But Indians better not decide based on songs! Look at us?
