Although it has been well over 50 days since Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared the demonetisation of higher value currency note, it seems people are still dealing with the consequences of the unprecedented move. While the queues in front of the ATMs and banks are yet to recede, a lot of politicians and leaders continue to weigh the pros and cons of the decision that the BJP-government asserts, will curb black money, corruption and illegal activities like terrorism. In addition to that, social media continues to be abuzz with viral content pertaining to demonetisation.

The latest is a poem that was sung by an elderly, who apparently goes by the name Bhanu Pratap Singh. The man is reportedly a resident of Uttar Pradesh and has recited a song called Wah re Modi ki sarkar, as he applauds BJP government’s decision to implement demonetisation. Meanwhile, he also recounts the difficulties that people had to face while they waited in queues to get their hands on their own hard-earned money.

A couple of the lines from the poem can roughly be translated as:

‘Modi ji has hit a good six, Sonia is left shocked
Rahul runs away confused and stands in a bank queue’

The old man lauds Modi’s move and says even the children are happy after his move. The video was uploaded by a Facebook user who goes by the name Vijay Tripathi. He is a resident of Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh and uploaded the video, which seems to be increasingly shared by others.
