'Vote for the G.O.A.T.': Modi's BJP reaches out to first-time voters in a viral rap song ad

New Delhi/IBNS: After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's chat with top Indian gamers, the country's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is seeking its third straight term, has reached out to the first-time voters- read Gen Z- with an interesting rap song video, which is now trending on social media.

A group of youngsters are shown in the video- shared by BJP on social media handles- first questioning themselves on why to vote for Modi, the supreme leader of the saffron camp- in the upcoming elections.

Answer comes from the group itself.

Economy, India's shining image at the global stage, Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan (cleanliness drive), steps to curb black money, Article 370 are some of the issues flagged by the youngsters as the reasons behind opting for 73-year-old Modi than any other leader in the country.

The video also carries the Gen-Z language which reads, "Vote for Modi, vote for the G.O.A.T!"

For the uninformed, the word 'G.O.A.T.' means the "Greatest Of All Time".

This is not the first time the Prime Minister and his BJP are campaigning hard for the youngsters or first-time voters to be specific.

Just a few days ago, the Prime Minister's meeting with gamers was a clear indication of its poll strategy ahead of the elections, which will give Modi a chance to become the Prime Minister for three consecutive terms, a feat achieved only by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru so far since India's Independence. He also won over the top digital creators of India recently with an award function where he was hailed as the biggest "influencer" of social media by the community of creators.

The Prime Minister's indirect jibe at an opposition leader over the word 'Noob' had trended on social media.

The top gamers were trying to discuss some Gen-Z words like 'Noob' to which the Prime Minister replied, "If I utter this word during campaigns, you will assume whom I am talking about." Modi and all the gamers burst into laughter.

The word 'Noob' loosely means novice or a newbie with lack of skills.

Modi, who became the Prime Minister in 2014 sweeping the Lok Sabha polls, was voted back to power even with a bigger margin in 2019.

Five years later, Modi has given a target to his party and ruling alliance NDA to cross 400.

"Abki bar 400 par (This time, more than 400 seats)," Modi said claiming BJP will alone touch the 370-seat-mark in this elections, which began on April 19 and continue for six other phases till June 1.
