Modi-fied: memes, tweets make most of BJP's Ab ki baar Modi sarkar

The BJP's Lok Sabha election slogan, 'Ab ki baar Modi sarkar', promoting party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is seen and heard everywhere: on TV, radio, newspapers, posters, billboards, trains. You could say the slogan has gone viral: or at least puns on it have.

Some of the tweets are wordplay on Gujarat being a dry state. Like these:

Some tweets pun on Gujarati food or song lyrics:

I tried so hard, and got so far But in the end, ab ki baar hogi Modi sarkar.

Well, some have also made use of the slogan in the essence that BJP perhaps meant it:

Modi sarkar (government) memes are the new rage: from song lyrics, to nursery rhymes; to Liam Neeson taking digs at the slogan.

They don't even have to be funny, if there's a word that ends with 'aar', ab ki baar Modi sarkar!
