Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Chouhan's twist to 'pawri ho rahi hai' trend
Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is the latest to join the "Pawri ho rahi hai" trend kicked off by a Pakistani influencer. The CM used the viral trend to spotlight how those involved in the illegal land activities are "running away" from his state.
"This is me, this is my government, this is my administrative team, and you see land mafias are running away," said Chouhan speaking at an event in Indore on Tuesday.
The CM tweeted a video of him delivering the lines of the viral trend with the hashtag #MafiaMuktMP.

In a warning to the ‘land mafia’ operating in the state in December last, CM Chouhan had asked them to leave the state or they would be “buried 10-feet in the ground".
Last month, the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC used the meme to hit back at rival BJP. "Yeh @BJP4Bengal hai. Yeh unki jansabha hai. Aur yahaan inki pawri ho rahi hai! (This is Bengal BJP. This is their public meeting. And they have a party going on)," the party tweeted, adding a photo from a BJP public meeting showing empty chairs.
The "Pawri ho rahi hai" went viral last month after Pakistani influencer and content creator Dananeer Mobeen posted a 15-second video on Instagram following which thousands of people on the internet started making memes and videos of their own over it.
Since then, politicians, celebrities, people have taken to the monologue and given it their own twist to it.
