They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but Pakistanis are really sure what to make of an Indian MPA’s copy of an ISPR song.
Thakur Raja Singh Lodh was a member of the Telangana Legislative Assembly representing the Goshamahal assembly constituency in Hyderabad. He is from Narendra Modi’s BJP.
On April 12, he took to Twitter to announce a new song, which he dedicated to the Indian armed forces. He even posted a preview of his song. But the song was a clear copy of an ISPR song released this past March 23 for Pakistan Day. The song was written by Sahir Ali Bagga.
Have a listen to both songs and let us know what you think.

Pakistanis and Indians alike have been trolling the former MPA for his originality. ISPR chief Major General Asif Ghafoor even chimed in.

Despite Singh announcing on Twitter that he would release his new song at 11:45am Indian Standard Time on April 14, nothing had been posted on his page as of 3:15pm Indian time.
