Ribald show by folk singer at Sonia rally sparks off controversy
Rae Bareli, May 4 (UNI) An purportedly ribald performance by famous folk singer Baleshwar and his troupe at a public meeting to be addressed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi here has sparked off minor controversy.
Though, the performance at the election meeting at Maharajganj under the Bachrawan assembly segment had taken place much before the Congress leader arrived but the allegedly obscene contents of the song, accompanied by similar gestures, embarassed the people -- including many women -- waiting there for Ms Gandhi.
The artistes included some girls also who used some vulgar words during their performance.
However, no senior leader of the state party unit was available to comment on the episode.
