An old meme featuring Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar has been doing the rounds on the internet again in the midst of Bihar political crisis. Shared by an account on Twitter, the meme has gone viral after Nitish Kumar left former ally BJP and reunited with Lalu Yadav's party to form a new government in Bihar.
The meme shows Lalu and Nitish while the song Qismat Ki Hawa Kabhi Naram from the 1951 film Albela plays in the background. The Bihar leaders’ faces have been animated in the meme, lip-syncing to the lyrics of the song.
Here’s the meme that is going viral:
Composed by C Ramchandra, Qismat Ki Hawa’s lyrics are as it goes: “Qismat ki hawa kabhi naram kabhi garam, kabhi naram naram kabhi garam garam (The winds of destiny are sometimes mild, and at times, harsh).”
The song has been used in the meme by its makers with regards to the political situation in Bihar.
Nitish Kumar is set to take oath as Bihar’s eighth chief minister on Wednesday. Ending his coalition with the BJP on August 9, Nitish Kumar submitted his resignation to Governor Phagu Chauhan and a list of 164 MLAs as he claimed the support of seven parties to form a new government.
Lalu Yadav's son and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav will be sworn in as Nitish Kumar’s deputy.
