Singer Kailash Kher has composed and sung a song for the Aam Aadmi Party, which plans to use it during public meetings and rallies ahead of the assembly polls.
Kher had in 2011 done a song in support of India Against Corruption’s campaign, when anti-graft activist Anna Hazare and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal had whipped up a storm demanding a strong Jan Lokpal.
“Hum badle toh yug badale… aam aadmi ki yahee awaaz hai, desh badalna hai aur aaj hee,” goes the song penned by Kher himself.
Manish Sisodia, AAP’s spokesperson, said Kher had seen AAP posters on auto-rickshaws when he was in Delhi sometime ago and then called up Kejriwal about composing a song for AAP.
“Once done, he wrote a mail saying: ‘This is my sincere and humble contribution to your pure and soulful mission in the form of a song Aam Aadmi Anthem.”
Later in the evening, Kejriwal tweeted: “Kailash Kher ji has made a song for Aam Aadmi. Thanks so much Kailash ji. We are very encouraged.”
The party thanked Kher for “pouring his soul into this song”.
