on Tuesday slammed the BJP over its recent

political ad

in which it states that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “stopped a war” and “evacuated stranded Indians”.

The BJP ad shows a woman, playing the role of a student, meeting her parents outside an airport.
She says: “Maine kaha tha na, kaisi bhi situation ho, Modi ji humein ghar le aayenge.

War rukwa di papa aur phir humari bus nikaali papa. (I had told you, whatever the situation, Modi ji will bring us home. [He] stopped the war, papa, and then rescued our bus).”

Though not explicitly stated, the video reminded viewers of how Indian students stranded in war-torn Ukraine were successfully evacuated.
The ad was shared on PM Modi’s official YouTube channel. “Under the leadership of PM Modi, all Indians across the globe are safe and secure as they are ‘Modi ka Parivar’. Track record of bringing all Indians back safely from war zones and disaster-hit regions a testimony to this,” reads the video description text.

advertisement

propaganda

.
“Now the truth is coming out after breaking the web of confusion and fear. This time the ‘Papa of Propaganda’ won’t be successful, the public itself is ready to show him the mirror,” he added.
