Bhubaneswar: Various renditions of ‘Sonu song’ (originally composed & sung by Kshirsagar) which have already created frenzy in the internet, are now a rage among the college students in Odisha who are using it as a tool to connect with their voters.
While student groups are penning down the songs, aspiring candidates are lending their voice.
Mobile videos of these songs shared through WhatsApp and other messaging apps are swarming the campuses and have become a noticeable trend in this year’s students’ poll campaign.
“Our intention behind recreating the song is to make all students aware of the problems in the campus. It is easily received by all as it is a popular song and everyone listens to it with a lot of interest,” said an aspiring candidate of Rama Devi Women’s University, Tanmayee Hota.
“All are listening to ‘Sonu song’ with great interest. No one wants to sit and listen to long speeches. With the help of the song, campaigning is getting easier,” said an aspiring candidate of Utkal University, Soumya Ranjan Mohapatra.
