Here's the post:
Anil Nagori, originally belonging to Nokha, Rajasthan, has gained acclaim both as a YouTuber and as a live performer. He also recently voiced campaign songs for the BJP.
The Prime Minister held high-octane rallies in Rajasthan on Friday during the course of which he had taken on the Congress party over a number of issues, the most noteworthy of which was the post-Masood Azhar 'global terrorist' listing claim by the Congress that India had carried out six surgical strikes during the UPA regime. In matters specific to the state, he raised the erstwhile UPA government's opposition to the Narmada dam and their then fearmongering that Modi would restrict water to Rajasthan.
The next phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the fifth, will be held on Monday.
