“It has come to our notice that in a few television channels there are discussions on “Har Har Modi” as if it is a BJP “nara” (slogan),” party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said in a statement.
Shankaracharya of Dwarka Peeth, Swaroopanand Saraswati was unhappy over the traditional chant ‘Har Har Mahadev’ which is raised to hail Lord Shiv being ‘modified’ into ‘Har Har Modi’, to spruce up Modi’s campaign.
Political parties like Samajwadi Party and Congress have also protested against BJP’s slogan ‘Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi’, saying it disrespected Lord Shiva.
