Composer Vishal Dadlani’s Take On Delhi CM Kejriwal’s ‘Lakshmi, Ganesh On Note’ Proposal

New Delhi: In a veiled criticism of Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) demand to introduce the images of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesh on currency notes, Bollywood composer Vishal Dadlani tweeted without naming anyone, “The Constitution of India states that we are a Secular Socialist Republic. Hence, religion must have NO PLACE in governance. To be completely clear, I have nothing to do with anyone who brings any part of any religion to any aspect of government. Jai Hind.”

“On Indian currency there is a photo of Gandhi ji; let that be. On the other side, a photo of Shri Ganesh Ji and Lakshmi ji should be added,” said the Delhi Chief Minister. “As I said we have to make a lot of effort to improve the economic situation of our country. Our efforts bear fruit when we have the blessings of Gods and Goddesses. The whole country will get blessings if on currency notes, there is a photo of Ganesh Ji and Lakshmi ji on one side and Gandhi ji on the other side,” he added.

Lakshmi is the goddess of prosperity and Lord Ganesh removes hurdles, said Kejriwal. “I am not saying change all notes. But all the fresh notes issued every month should have their images,” Kejriwal said. Referring to Indonesia, a Muslim nation that has a picture of Lord Ganesh on its currency note, he said, “When Indonesia can, why can’t we?”
