The noted Tollywood song writer churns out ‘encomiums’ for Narendra Modi. Such is his expertise that he just took a couple of days to churn out 10 songs of different genre.

Noted Telugu lyricist Jonnavitthula Ramalingeswara Rao has a different job these days altogether. He had made good use of his literary skills to pen songs for the Tollywood stars. But now his creative words are meant only to praise BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Nothing to lose

More popular as ‘Jonnavitthula’, this famous writer has been entrusted the task of encapsulating the jubilant mood of the BJP in Seemandhra region. No doubt, the new task has limited his scope as a writer but he has nothing to complain about as he is among the strong contenders for getting a ticket from Vijayawada Central Assembly constituency.

Such was his expertise that he just took a couple of days to churn out 10 songs of different genre. These songs, mostly hailing Mr. Modi, are now being heard at the party meetings and the racy tunes are liked by one and all. One of his songs - ‘Chai Chai Chai manchirojulu vacchai…Modi ki jai antu ningi nela mecchai’ was an instant hit at the BJP meeting held in the city on Friday.

Sharing his experience with The Hindu, Mr. Rao said that he had been writing songs for films for nearly two decades. “My new assignment is a challenging one and I used the best of my words to take the message of my party to the masses”.

“This is one way of making a literary contribution to my party to make Mr. Modi Prime Minister, ” Mr. Jonnavitthula observed and said his pen would be his at work for the saffron party .
