If the 2013 and 2015 Delhi Assembly elections were about social media management by the Aam Aadmi Party helmed by Arvind Kejriwal, the upcoming Punjab elections in 2017 has seen the Delhi Chief Minister display a more musical bent of strategy while bringing up issues – primarily drug abuse – that plague the state to the fore.
A promotional anti-drugs video by AAP, titled “Anti-Drugs Campaign by AAP: Mufflerman Returns, The Corruption Hunter” was recently shared by Kejriwal on his Facebook page. The Zero Productions video is heavily inspired by the film Udta Punjab and clearly takes a dig at Badals who are currently ruling the state.
The ad shows that a drug deal is about to happen between two guys but is called off at the last minute because the supplier decides otherwise. “Saare badal ab chatne wale hain, kyunki Kejriwal ab aane wala hai (the sky is going to get clear because Kejriwal is coming)” he says.
And then BOOM! Mufflerman returns.
Watch the video here:
Previously, Kejriwal had shared a video of himself singing a parody of the song “Aa chal ke tujhe main leke chalun, ek aise gagan ke tale…” and another by fellow AAP member Kumar Vishwas, called #KVNasha.
