Neha Singh Rathore is receiving criticism for the song “Bihar me ka ba”
Neha Singh Rathore, a folk singer who was recently given a warning by the Kanpur Police in February, has released a new song titled “Bihar Mein Ka Ba (Season 2)” in which she viciously criticizes the Nitish-Tejaswi administration for the Nalanda and Sasaram violence that occurred during Ram Navami.
Song gained not only popularity in Bihar but also online trending
The song has gained popularity on social media, and Bihar BJP leaders have shared it from their accounts. The lyrics of Rathore’s song approximately translate to: “Bihar locals are the victim of this uncle-nephew combination as stone-pelting proceeds during Ram Navami parade” (a reference to CM Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejaswi Yadav).
Sasaram, Nalanda, and Chhapra are all on fire. Election promises included 10 lakh employment, but none were delivered. What more does Bihar have to offer? Due to fake alcohol, workers are dying (a reference to multiple hooch tragedies). How long can you avoid answering questions? ‘Uncle’ has served as chief minister for 15 years, as has ‘nephew’s’ father (Lalu Prasad Yadav), but no one has been able to change the situation. “What is there in Bihar? Violence and extortion are present. These are indications of “jungle raj,” the song claims. With the release of her song “UP Mein Ka Ba” in advance of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election in 2022, Rathore became well-known.
Singer Questioned by Police
She has already created “Bihar Mein Ka Ba” Part 1 in 2020. The singer received a notification inquiring as to whether she penned the words to the songs after releasing the second half of “UP Mein Ka Ba” on February 16. The singer uploaded a video of the moment she got the notification. The singer questioned the officers after receiving the warning,
“Who is forcing you to do all this?” Manish Sisodia, a former Delhi deputy chief minister, criticized Uttar Pradesh. Several on social media poked fun at Rathore, wondering whether Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, had scared her into shifting her criticism from the BJP to the grand alliance-led Bihar government. Some even made snarky remarks about how she was doing well since she had the support of both
the administration and the opposition. Another user inquired about Rathore’s response to the Kanpur police’s notification. Neha Singh Rathore was notified and instructed to confirm if she was the person in the video and whether she had posted it herself. The folk singer was questioned about the lyrics of the songs, including whether she wrote them and whether she stands by them. “Has the lyricist obtained your consent if you haven’t written the lyrics?” the author asked.
