AS THE BJP finalises its campaign tools for the Uttar Pradesh elections, one aspect the party is working on is Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s image. The campaign theme, decided as of now, would be to project Adityanath as a fighter – against corruption and criminals. The campaign song would be inspired by the popular “Dham Dham Dhadam Dhadaiya Re, Sabse Bade Ladaiya Re”, from Vishal Bharadwaj’s Omkara. Party leaders said with the song they hope to send the right message to the people about Adityanath’s achievements in the past five years.
