The lyrics of the song read as, “Bharat will become a Hindu Rashtra soon and those who don’t take Lord Ram’s name will have to run away from Bharat.”
Goshamahal BJP MLA Raja Singh said, “After Ayodhya, now Mathura and Kashi, Yogi will use the bulldozer to clean and Bharat will become a ‘Hindu Rashtra very soon’.”
As a part of same song BJP MLA also sang, “Jo ram ka naam na le unko Bharat se bhagana hai,” [those who don’t take the name of Lord Ram will have to run away from India].
