Despite having award-winning entitled lyricist Javed Akhtar and his wife Shabana Azmi campaign for him, CPI’s Lok Sabha 2019 candidate for Begusarai Kanhaiya Kumar was caught plagiarising BJP leader Devender Kadyan’s tagline, “Neta Nahin Beta”. Kanhaiya Kumar, who has mentioned in his affidavit that he is unemployed was found running a full-page ad on the front page of the newspaper.
Kanhaiya Kumar’s tagline ‘neta nahin beta’ is actually BJP leader Devender Kadyan’s tagline, which he has been using for at least a year now.
In fact, he even has a Facebook page with the said tagline.
Kadyan, a BJP leader from Haryana, was earlier associated with the Congress and was also a General Secretary before he switched sides and joined the BJP earlier this year.
Ironically, Kanhaiya does not hold high regards for those who give full-page ads in newspapers.
जब काम नहीं किया जाता तो ढिंढोरा पीटने के लिए पूरा अख़बार “सरकारी खर्चे पर”विज्ञापनों से भर दिया जाता है।आपको अपने देश के किसानों और विद्यार्थियों को मिलने वाली सरकारी मदद के खिलाफ उकसाया जाता है और बड़े उद्योगपतिओं के बड़े-बड़े लोन माफ़ कर दिए जाते हैं। https://t.co/KKjmBR5ezu

Kanhaiya Kumar’s hypocrisy was called out by many Twitter users who called out the irony in putting out expensive ads when Kanhaiya Kumar claims he is poor and has no money to buy gas cylinder.
These are the front pages of today’s newspapers in Begusarai. Who is funding this Tukde-Tukde gang member Kanhaiya Kumar ? Whether he is getting support from Breaking India people ?@vivekagnihotri @girirajsinghbjp @Satyanewshi @MODIFIREKBAR @ShefVaidya @iAnkurSingh @saket71 pic.twitter.com/FFKnDaVMN5

Lyricist @Javedakhtarjadu couldn’t get him a tag line? ??

Meanwhile, ditched by the ‘Mahagathbandhan’, CPI has fielded Kanhaiya Kumar from Begusarai. The locals of Begusarai have revealed how Kanhaiya Kumar’s goons have beaten them up on his instructions after they waved black flags during his road show.
And now, despite having an ‘anti-Communist’ Javed Akhtar campaign for the self-proclaimed proud communist, Kanhaiya Kumar had to resort to not just stealing someone else’s tagline but also ended up putting out a full front page ad in newspaper he is otherwise critical of.
