Nawang read a personally written poem to poke fun at Mehbooba Mufti

Jammu and Kashmir News

Srinagar: In a most unusual yet novel way of slamming the government, the MLA from Leh and CLP leader Nawang Rigzin Jora made use of satirical poetry to describe the ‘transformation’ in the ideology of the ruling PDP government.

He referred to the agenda of the coalition government in the state and narrated a poem in the Assembly. Jora touched all the issues extending from the pre-election PDP stance on dealing with the separatists to the present association with the BJP, the AFSPA, the speculations of getting rid of 370 and all other promises and assurances given by the present government and brilliantly ridiculed them in the most refined manner.

Interestingly, Jora said the poem was inspired by a newspaper write-up that glorified CM Mehbooba Mufti. The article stated Mehbooba’s transformation in reference to the Lotus or BJP has mostly gone unobserved. The MLA said that this propelled him to write a poem.

Jora’s reference to “lotus” in the poem, “Acha hua dil badalne laga, kamal ke phool sa lagnay laga”, initially anoyed some BJP legislators but later on they keenly listened to the MLA’s poetry.

Jora set a new trend in the House of expressing his views in the form of verses.
Here are the lines from his

Acha laga dil badalne laga,  Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga

Ab toh riyasat ko badalna hoga, Tawareekh (History) ko badalna hoga, Takdir ko badalna hoga
Kamal ko khilna hoga, Kesariya khoob bharna hoga.
Acha laga dil badalne laga, Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga
Ab toh libas bhi badalne laga, Der se hi sahi badalne lga
Kesariya Sabz lagne laga, Acha laga dil badalne laga, Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga
Ab algawaad bardasht nahi, Rashtriyawaad bardasht acha lagne laga.
Sena par hamla bardasht nahi, AFSPA hatao bardasht nahi
Yeh rakshak humare dushman nahi, acha laga dil badalne laga, Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga.
Ab yeh jung khayalon ki nahi, ab yeh jung usoolon ki nahi
Ab yeh khel sirf riyasat ka hai
Lag gyi daav khel gyi baazi, Ab darre hum kyun abhi hum hain kaazi
Acha laga dil badalne laga, Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga
Baatein hongi apno se, Padosi se bhi baaton mein kya rakha hai
Goli se nahi boli se ya Boli se nahi goli se
Yeh shabdo ke haer-pher hi toh hain Jumlon ka haer-pher hi toh hai
Acha laga dil badalne laga, Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga
Kaun kehta hai yeh dariya yeh jharne yeh nadiyan nahi hain humare
Ab toh NHPC bhi hain apne humare
Acha laga dil badalne laga, Kamal ke phool sa lagne laga
Kaun Kehta hai Riyasat khatre main hai
Kaun Kehta hai pehchaan khatre mai hai apni
Ab toh 370 ki bhi zaroorat bhi nahi
Dafna do kisi gaddhe mein ya phaink do khai mein
