Bhubaneswar: Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) candidate for Puri Lok Sabha seat Sambit Patra is leaving no stone unturned to woo the voters. As Puri has a sizeable Telugu population, Patra sang two popular Telugu songs in Penthakat public meeting last night to win over the crowd.
Sharing the videos on Facebook, he wrote, “When I sang the Telegu number "Bangaru KodiPetta" the Telegu youth of Puri got tantalised hearing the famous number . Don't believe...? Must watch...! “
He also sang the romantic number ‘Tum Mile Dil Khile’ as the crowd cheered his initiative. “While Campaigning amidst Telugu population, I sang a famous Telugu number on demand. The frenzy in the crowd was palpable, don’t believe ? A must watch! Lots of love to my adorable Telugu friends.” he posted.
While many have praised his action, some have also termed it ‘desperate’. On the other hand, people of Puri are all set to vote in the third phase polls on April 23.
