BJP bigwigs make no secret of their love of music. Union minister Nitin Gadkari burst into a Bollywood song at a recent political event in Madhya Pradesh, and not for the first time. BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya is a bhajan singer and performed at the wedding of MoS Babul Supriyo in 2016. Prime Minister Narendra Modi let slip his predilection for the drums with a duet with Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli in 2016. But the party’s closet musician is president
Amit Shah. When not crisscrossing the country eyeing new conquests for his party, the pakhawaj player can be found at home drumming up a beat.
