Shankarachayra Swaroopanand Saraswati, a religious leader, had asked the BJP not politicise sacred mantras like “Har Har Modi”. “Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi” is the slogan BJP and its supporters have been using for many days now. As reported by PTI, Shankarachayra Swaroopanand Saraswati had said:
After learning about it, I called up Bhagwat (RSS chief) yesterday and asked him to stop such chanting, which is an insult to Lord Shiva. I told him that converting â€˜Har har Mahadevâ€™ into â€™Har Har Modiâ€™ must be stopped. Instead of worshipping god, it is an attempt to worship a particular human being and is against Hindu religion.
In response to the criticism, BJP issued a press release, in which Nirmala Sitharaman stated:
It has come to our notice that in a few television channels there are discussions on “HarHarModi” as if it is a BJP nara/slogan. This is incorrect.
The BJP slogan is â€œAbkiBaarModiSarkaar.”
Further, Narendra Modi himself tweeted and claimed that the “Har Har Modi” was a creation of his supporters.
Some enthusiastic supporters are using slogan “Har Har Modiâ€¦” I respect their enthusiasm but request not to use this slogan in the future.

Now how big a liar BJP’s Prime Ministerial Candidate is can be seen from the fact that in Modi’s Purnia Rally in Bihar, the stage created for the rally had the “Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi” slogan in huge fonts right below where he was supposed to stand and deliver his speech. Stages in Modi’s rallies are not created/designed by his supporters, but BJP organizers and Modi’s close strategists.
Next, two video clips of his rallies in Agra, Uttar Pradesh and Muzaffarpur, Bihar would show the extent to which Narendra and BJP indulge in blatant lies. First, in Modi’s Agra rally, as Narendra Modi is seated, a BJP leader urges the crowd to use the “Har Har Modi” slogan.
Next in Modi’s Muzaffarpur rally, a BJP leader shouts the “Har Har Modi” slogan as Modi is welcomed onto the stage.
That should be ample proof to show that BJP is a party of liars.
