Yo Modi-Shah Parivaar !! Ab ki baar, kiski sarkaar ??

The people in Delhi have spoken, Oh they have !
Does the BJP, to this rout, now have a salve ?
Eight months back, people called it the 'Modi Wave'
A lot many said 'our country, only this man can save'.

Sceptics like me were in the minority
To warnings of voting in a fascist, his supporters did not agree
'We need leaders like him' people boasted and cackled
'Why can't they see through this man ?' I often wondered, horrified and baffled.

What about the Godhra riots and his role in them, I shouted myself hoarse
People had a whole bag of counter arguments to that one, of course
None of which made sense and they all seemed to beat about the bush
People seemed hell bent on giving Modi, towards the PMs chair, a push.

Think about it, people, think about it
'Tis been eight months since, on the PMs chair, he began to sit
Huge promises he did make, at those noisy election rallies
Now, looking at the achievements, does any of it tally ?

Arrogance has always been a part of him, it always has
'Swacchh Bharat and Clean Toilets' and all that jazz
On what counts has his government even begun to deliver, I ask
Will the people of India have it in them, to take him to task ?

Armed with his alma mater of organized religion
The khaps, panchayats, patriarchy still rules the bastion
The sadhus, sadhvis and khaki chaddis, as ever, regressive
Bringing them to power just made the atmosphere for them, more conducive.

Apart from facilitating 'community fraction' under the RSS faction
What else has he done ?  Any answers ?  Anything ?  Anyone ?
Communal comments like "Ramzadon ya Haramzadon" he did sanction
He's thoroughly living up to his reputation of 'all talk and no action'.
May I call upon all of those who called Manmohan Singh a mounmuni, silent
Those very people, on our current PM, come on, let's pass a judgment.

Our country's woes continue to increase
In pulling wool over the lower and middle classes, his game plan was a masterpiece
To all those people who touted Modi as a saviour
To all those people who, about his abilities, were so sure

I have one question for all of you, today.
Think carefully and answer truthfully, if you may.
Did you bet on the wrong horse, back then
On this issue, can you still call him a saviour and about it, be zen ?

Organized religion has always been a strong theme
Politicians 'use it' effectively, as, eight months back, we've seen'
'Time for BJP, Time for Change' said the posters
People fell for it and brought into power, a bunch of impostors.

I've never been a Modi fan, nor will I ever be
Every time I look at his picture, the atrocity in Godhra is what I see
A fascist dictator, authoritarian and an autocrat
Did the 'aam janta' really think he would turn into a democrat ?

'Bahut hui desh mein mehangaai ki maar, Bahut hua brashtachaar'
Crowed and boasted his PR think tank 'Ab ki baar, Modi sarkaar'
Yeh sab satyavachan to nikley bekaar
Kya yeh Bharat ke vikas ke liye bani Modi sarkar ya phir ho rahi hai din dhuni atyachaar ?

The people of Delhi, to the truth, have woken
Their displeasure at having been taken for a ride, aloud they've spoken
Will the rest of the country take a long, good look at the current government's statute ?
And, in the future, like the people of Delhi, prove just as astute ?

I hope. I pray they do.
