According to the list of 10 candidates that came hours before the filing of nomination closes on Tuesday, Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Tajinderpal Singh Bagga has been fielded from Hari Nagar.
The BJP leader was trolled on social media after his name did not feature in his party’s first list of candidates for the upcoming Delhi assembly elections 2020. Opponents of the rightwing ecosystem could barely conceal their joy. #DontCryBagga was trending on Twitter, with a plentiful supply of memes about Bagga.
However, he finally made it to the second list on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday.
After being named as the Hari Nagar candidate, Bagga came back thanking everyone with a rap song on Twitter, ‘Bagga, Bagga Har Jagah’, to highlight his fight against various social and political issues.
