The Congress party on Tuesday released a music video, mocking Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. A parody of a popular Rajasthani folk song – Holiya mein ude re gulal – the song refers to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader as “ahankari Maharani (arrogant queen)”.

The video, released by the Congress party in the run up to the Rajasthan Assembly elections, also takes a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, referring to them as “jumla waalo”.

Several allegations have also been levelled on the Rajasthan Chief Minister in the video. The first line of the song itself alleges that Raje has brought the state in a poor shape. Raje has also been accused of making false promises in the name of Kaushal Vikas and Swachhta Abhiyan.

It has further been alleged that the conditions of roads have worsened while the burden on the state exchequer has also increased. The video also refers to the alleged ties between Raje and former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi, who has fled the country.

Apart from these, the video alleges nexus between Raje government in Rajasthan and the mining mafia.

The video has been released amid fierce campaign by all parties for the Rajasthan Assembly elections.

The polling for 200-seat Rajasthan Assembly will be held on December 7 and the result will be declared on December 11.
