PM Narendra Modi is the need of the hour, says over 900 artistes.
More than 900 artistes, including Pandit Jasraj, Vivek Oberoi and Rita Ganguli, on Wednesday pledged support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and implored people to vote for BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party), saying that the country need ‘Majboot Sarkar’ and not a ‘Majboor Sarkar’.
The artistes urged people to cast their vote without pressure and prejudice, said a statement released to media.
“It is our firm conviction that the continuance of the government led by PM Narendra Modi is the need of the hour. Besides, when challenges like terrorism are before all of us, we need a ‘Majoot Sarkar’ not a ‘Majboor Sarkar’, and hence we need the present government to continue,” said a joint statement by artistes.
The joint statement was issued by Shankar Mahadevan, Koena Mitra, Hans Raj Hans, Triloki Nath Mishra, Anuradha Paudwal,and Malini Awasthi.
The statement came days after more than 1,000 artistes signed three individual petitions against the ‘politics of hate’ and asked people to vote out BJP from the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.
