Janta maaf nahi karegi: BJP unveils advertisement targetting Congress

New Delhi [India]: As political climate heats up in the country in the run-up to the 17th Lok Sabha polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday unveiled an advertisement titled ‘Janta maaf nahi karegi (people will not forgive)’ which was one of the popular electoral slogans used by the party in the 2014 General elections.

The party has tagged a video of a commoner who is seen attacking the Congress for raising questions on the works done by the BJP in the last five years.

“You are questioning the surgical strike and air strike. You are questioning China fleeing from Doklam. You are questioning the statue of Sardar (Patel). You are questioning the Supreme Court. If you have lost elections, then you are raising questions on EVMs. When the world is lauding India, you are questioning the World Bank. Questions after questions. When anything good happens in our country then people will not forgive those raise fingers,” the woman could be heard saying in the advertisement.

Apart from the ‘Janta maaf nahi karegi’ slogan, other catchy phrases used by the BJP during campaigning for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls were ‘Acche din aane wale hain’ (Good days are coming) and ‘Ab ki baar Modi sarkar’ (It is time for Modi government).

With electioneering in full swing, political parties including BJP and Congress are leaving no stones unturned to target their opponents and are campaigning on particular issues in a bid to woo the public ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The Lok Sabha polls with 543 parliamentary seats in the fray are scheduled to be conducted in seven phases from April 11 to May 19. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
