While on the one hand the entire nation is worried about the Covid 19 pandemic with horrific spike in cases of this deadly virus there are some blind followers of the saffron party and its tallest leader PM Narendra Modi who’ve written and launched an AARTI praising him with his saffron clad picture while meditating in Kedarnath cave on the pattern of the dieties .

After coming into controversy regarding news/ rumours of launching of this AARTI written by Dr. Renu Pant, the personel staff of the minister Dhan Singh Rawat have now denied this news terming it as baseless n wrong.

As per the facebook posts going viral in social media it is believed that this ARTI OF MODIJI’S PRAISE authored by Dr. Renu Pant of Uttarakhand on Hanumaan Chalisa pattern is being ridiculed and some enlightened jounalists like Gunanand Jakhmola and writer Sachidanand Semwal of Sanglakoti, Garhwal are writing posts in FB giving his phone numbers to furnish details about the AARTI Writer Dr. Pant in order to talk to her about her idea n rationale behind this ARTI writing praising PM Narendra Modi on various fronts like fighting pandemic Corona, withdrawing article 370 from Kashmir, fighting terrorism, befreinding powerful president of US Donald Trump, making the entire world tremble due to his extreme power so on and so forth terming him as a diety.

When scribe Jakhmola contacted the minister Dhan Singh Rawat’s secretary Dhaundiyal asking about the release of the Modiji’s Arti, he sarcastically denied the news and said that the minister is on tour with the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat. However, he was asked to talk to MLA Ganesh Joshi to know about the details and authenticity of the ARTI. When MLA Ganesh Joshi was contacted by journalist Jakhmola as per his face book post, the reluctant lawmaker said that they had received two three separate write ups on ARTIES ON THEIR WHATSAPP GROUPS and this Modi Arti was selected as the best one and send for print.

Not a big deal said Joshi. Sounds ironical.The printed colourful arti also consists of Prime minister Narendra Modi’s picture in saffron attire meditating in Kedarnath cave. According to Mussorie law maker Ganesh Joshi the author of this Arti is Dr. Renu Pant hailing from Uttarkashi Garhwal. The secretary of minister Dhan Singh Rawat Dhaundiyal has denied releasing of this Arti by Dhan Singh Rawat, saying that the minister had gone to attend a function on MLA Ganesh Joshi’s request to honour the Corona warriors not to release the Modi Arti.

fb post of writer Sachidanand Semwal blaming the writer of Arti for copying from a Granth.

Writer Sachidanand Semwal has charged the author in his facebook post for misusing the Shlokaas and converting them as Modiji oriented Aarti which is against the ethics and established norms of writing. He ridiculed the so called Aarti after stealing the idea n shlokas of Goddess Saraswati etc.

Uttarakhnd minister Dhan Singh Rawat and MLA Ganesh Joshi n the phone numbers of journalist Gunanand Jakhmola mentioned on his fb post asking anywon to give the phone numbers of Dr. Renu Pant, the author of the AARTI on PM Narendra Modi so that he is able to interview her

However, there had been news allegedly revealing about the minister’s release of this AARTI. It may be recalled that an Arti on the pattern of Hanuman Chalisa was also released years ago when he was the Bihar CM known as Laalu Chalisa.

    Unlike Congress PM Modi has not even named a single scheme in his name where Congress continues to glorify the Nehrus & Gandhis after each and every scheme. Every scheme is either Rajiv Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru……besides Congress should immediately demolish the Sonia Gandhi temple in Telengana. Its surprising that Congress is so much worried about hindu sentiments where as in Congress ruled states they play petty politics of killing sadhus and hindus mercilessly. What a disasterous party is Congress.
    Every individual has a right to have an inspiring person they can follow but unnecessary drama of terming them as Gods is quite an embaressment to that particular icon…..
    Hope Congress looks into its own flaws before pointing fingers at others
