Young kids of school going age were recorded chanting abusive slogans against Prime Minster Narendra Modi in presence of Congress general secretary Priyanka Vadra.
In the video, the kids, some of whom were wearing Congress caps, were first heard boisterously chanting Chowkidar Chor Hai much to the approval and delight of Priyanka Vadra.
They though unexpectedly changed track and began chanting abusive slogans when someone from the crowd yelled, Neem ka patta kadva hai. The kids were then heard shouting in unison, Modi s*** b**** hai.
Priyanka Vadra then appeared to supposedly display mock disbelief and asked the kids to refrain all the while being unable to hold back her smile.
The kids then changed track and started chanting Rahul Gandhi Zindabad slogans.
It wasn’t clear from the video as to who was prodding the kids to should such slogans.
A couple of years ago it was reported that political parties were strictly barred by the child rights panel from using children for their election campaign. It remains to be seen whether the Congress party would court trouble due to the same.
