Greeting friends, I am Dhruv Rathee. Welcome to this new show where we talk about election season related issues. How the new agenda is being set… How fake news is being spread… What threats are being served or what drama is being played.. for VOTES !! Normally, our politicians either show their achievements or make promises to ask for votes. but friends, what will happen when they have none? What will they do then? ha…. this is a good idea. …keep repeating one word again and again and hope atleast somebody will vote ! Some politicians thought of displaying their physical fitness to ask for votes. I wish the fitness level was more challenging. Atleast some people would have got convinced. But this looks hopeless… Some politicians thought of stealing Pakistani Army song and remaking it with Indian nationalist lyrics… …and SING it would be a good idea. Well….this is still okay at a comedy level But in this election season the way politicians have threaten people is at another level. In Chattisgarh, a congress politician told people that, if they press any button other than Congress on EVM, they will get electric shock !! This might seem like a joke to us friends, but there might be people who might get influenced by this and may not press any other button in FEAR !! In Gujrat, BJP MLA has said that cameras have been installed inside the booth to watch. And if people don´t vote for Modi, they will not get employments. BJP MP, Sakshi Maharaj has threatened to curse people if they do not vote for Modi. BJ’P Menaka Gandhi has said that the village will be divided into four section A,B,C,D…. Only the village which votes more percentage to BJP will see more developments. And if any village votes less to BJP, then that village will see less development. Rajnath Sigh says the sedition law should be made stricter so that anti nationals in the country should tremble with FEAR ! The million dollar question is….WHO ARE THESE ANTI NATIONALS? Is this journalist Anti National? He was kept in jail under sedition law because he criticised BJP and RSS. Or…is it, anybody who doesn´t vote for Modi is Anti National? Not me but BJP MP Candidate from Bengaluru is saying… Every person who doesn´t vote for Modi is Anti National !! Communal statements and polarising comments were as usual…. So EC suspended Yogi Adityanath, Mayavati, Azam Khan for 2-3 days from campaigning. Election Commission woke up took action after Supreme Courts expressed it´s displeasure over lack of action. But our Prime Minister is still excluded by this. Prime Minister Modi, didn´t spare our martyred soldiers for votes, You can see in this election rally, Modi has all those martyred soldiers´ pictures in the background. He is asking people to vote for himself in the name of martyred soldiers. This cartoon from Satish Acharya sums it up well. How on one side Modi denies any terrorist attach during his time. And on the other side he is asking for votes in the name of Pulwama martyred soldiers. What hypocrisy !! Such behaviour from our Prime Minister´s shows how the Election Agenda has changed. Whatever was the agenda in 2014 is not the same in 2019. In 2014 votes were asked on ´Ácche Din´ promise On Ganga cleaning….. On employment promises… On equality…sabka saath, sabka vikas. On empowering girl child… beti bachao, beti padao. Friends, pay attention to the slogans. They were issue based in 2014. in 2019, the slogans we get to hear are… It is possible if Modi is there…Modi hain toh mumkin hain. I am also a watchman….main bhi chowkidaar. None of these slogans are neither issue based not agenda based. A really unfortunate thing has happened. For the first time in Indian history, a terror accused is fighting the election representing a major political party. Friends, I am talking about Sadvi Pragya. She is a prime accused in terror bomb blast. Now she has joined BJP and is fighting from Bhopal. On this occasion, we should remember Modi´s 2014 speech. He had promised the nation that he will not give any space for criminals in politics. In the beginning all these criminal politicians within BJP were being termed as “Fringe Elements” by media. Two years ago, this fringe politicians turned into main stream politicians…when, Yogi Adityanath was made Chief Minister of UP. Now, let´s talk about last week´s fake Whatsapp message. The biggest one is… A 75 year old Modi supporter was murdered by Congress, TN supporter. This message was spread like viral on all right wing pages. Even India Today published this news. Only after Quint and Police enquire it became clear that this death had nothing to do with politics. And this photo became viral, it was made to look as though Wing Commander Abhinandan was campaigning for BJP. This is FAKE NEWS. This man is a look alike of Wing Commander Abhinandan. A news paper photo became so viral that even actor Paresh Rawal tweeted it, which was FAKE. I would like to thank Alt News for debunking all these fake news You can visit altnews.com for more detailed information and for this week´s FAKE NEWS ! Please share this video widely.
