    Shaheed Capt Vikram Batra's Mother is actually fighting on an AAP ticket from HP.

    Yes, Thanks, for reminding me.

    But,

    How do you react to the specific comment from the Martyr's family.


    I find these comments interesting.

    What does this comment particularly signify?

    Actually the slogan was coined by Pepsi India in 1998 for it's advertisement and became popular all over India after Capt Vikram Batra uttered it during the Kargil war.

    Indignation would have mattered more if the mother wasn't also a candidate in the elections. And to ask for a withdrawal against her belittled the protest. In the end it was all politics.
    The brave martyr has been used disrespectfully.
    Not by Modi.

    I think you too will agree that, Mr. Narendra Modi didn't use the ' Yeh Dil Mange More' because it was once upon a time Pepsi Jingle. But because it was used by Saheed Capt. Batra.

    So, was it right for Ms. Lekhi to objectively point out the Pepsi connection when it wasn't used in that context.

    She said " She said, "'Dil Maange More' is not a copyright of the Vikram Batra's family."

    This is a very trivial issue.I don't understand how did Mr Modi Insult the martyred captains family by uttering the slogan.

    By by entering politics Mrs Batra must understand that she is no longer immune to Political mudslinging.Her personal life will no longer remain personal.

    Besides this is nothing in comparison to the statements made by Kerala CM V. S. Achuthanandan who said "even a dog won't visit Major Sandeep Unikrishnan's house"

    Do you think, it was fair for Modi to have used the slogan for votes?

    Could he have courted controversy had he only saluted Saheed Capt. Batra and not link it with votes?

    Same way we cant even use "Inqalab Zindabad" "Jai Mata Di" etc ??
    So stop saying he used it for appeasing the voters.

    And AAP is desperate for some supporters in HP. Actually people here don't even know the AAP Candidates from their seats...

    This is what is the bone of contention.

    May not be insult, was it correct to ask votes based on it?



    I think no matter how many times CM V. S. Achuthanandan says sorry, he will not be forgiven. Nor will be person from Bihar who said people join armed forces to die.

    Quite right.

    So, what do you think, was Modi trying to, when he used the slogan?

    This can also be seen as "by voting for BJP, you are voting for strengthening the nation's security and honoring it's martyrs".

    But will it not be a irony that AAP which is shouting at the top of it's voice against Modi is using Capt Batra's mom for cheap political gains

    Yes, it can also be seen so.

    But, on the contrary, is it possible for Capt. Batra's mother, to shed her identity as a Martyr's mother? No.

    So, how does Minakshi Lekhi's comment be perceived?

    AAP is going to lose its deposits in most of its seats.

    I don't know what was in his mind but it wasn't for attracting voters..
    The place he was adressing the rally is among the most educated in the state and a BJP StrongHold.

    So appeasing voters in their own Stronghold is quite funny ?

    I have a mixed opinion. Personally I wouldn't have used it without informing the family.

    Also, Mrs Batra claims Modi was HP in charge during Kargil, he never once visited them.

    I sure hope she is not invoking shaheed Capt Batra's name for votes that would be terrible.

    Please confirm

    No she can't shed her identity of a martyr's mom but one must understand that when you enter politics you are no longer immune from personal and political verbal attacks.

    Today someone can also say stuffs like she is using her son's martyrdom for making political maneuverings and to win sympathy votes.

    Had she not joined politics she would have every right to object to Mr Modi's statement but since she is in politics and beloning to a party which is fighting against the BJP, she cannot complain.
