A new video called ‘Lalkar’ (‘challenge’) has been launched by Punjab deputy chief minister and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president, Sukhbir Singh Badal. The video has been launched as a counter to the AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) track ‘Nasha.’ The video ‘Nasha’ was launched last month and is about intoxicants and drugs. Full video of ‘Lalkar’ song was out on Tuesday night.
The term ‘Lalkaar’ has allegedly been spelt in the video teaser and the SAD wing student Organisation of India has addressed it as a perfect reply to one of the AAP leader, Kumar Vishwas. Sung by Meetpal Singh Dugri, SOI president for Malwa zone-3, the song video describes about Punjab’s glorified history and colourful culture with references to different individuals. Parmbans Singh Bunty Romana, state coordinator of SOI, was present at the release.
A press statement by the SAD says, “Lyricist Satta Gill in his song ‘Lalkar’ not only challenged AAP’s convener Arvind Kejriwal for misleading people through false propaganda, “but also launched frontal attack on… Kumar Vishwas for describing Punjabis as drug addict in his latest song.”
SAD have also asked AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal to clear his stand on SYL canal that has now been terminated by CM Badal.
During the release, Sukhbir, has challenged the other parties, to avoid relying upon misleading election campaigns that target the Punjabis and Punjab and defame them. He also mentioned the SAD-BJP alliance and ask them to compete on its development agendas. The SOI will telecast “Lalkar” on all Punjabi channels.
