The irony was lost on everyone. Even as speaker after speaker criticised Pakistan for its terror tactics at the rally in Kanpur, the song playing in the background was set to music from, yes, you guessed, a Pakistani singer. “Dhokha diya sada Congress (I) ne, desh ko loot liya Sonia tai ne,” went the BJP song. The original? ‘ Achha sila diya tune mere pyaar ka, yaar ne hi loot lia ghar yaar ka’, written and sung by Pakistani singer Attaullah Khan Esakhelvi.
