New Delhi: The Congress is experimenting with every prescription to taste victory in the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. Though the party has decided to stick to its lucky theme song ‘Jai Ho’ with Rahul Gandhi in focus, it is also exploring to capitalise on the popular song ‘Why this Kolaveri Di?’ to find a connect with the youth.

The party management is trying to acquire the copyright of the song to adopt it as the second theme song of the Congress.

The Congress has planned to launch both the songs together. However the Kolaveri Di hitmaker Dhanush raised some objections and he wants to have a first look of the song being prepared by the Congress.

Sources said, earlier Dhanush was reluctant to lend the song rights but later actor turned parliamentarian Raj Babbar intervened and convinced him on ideological issues. Though there are no more objections, the negotiations are still on to finalise the deal.

The party is keen to bank on the success of the song for elections in UP, Uttarakhand, Goa, Punjab and Manipur. While the ‘Jai Ho’ focuses on Rahul Gandhi, the Kolaveri Di theme song will target other parties along with highlighting good governance and secularism plank of the Congress.

According to sources, the song has been prepared to criticize religion based politics especially to target the Bharatiya Janata Party.

It is interesting to note that whether it is Obama’s theme song ‘We can’t wait’, Congress’ ‘Jai Ho’ in last Lok Sabha elections, RJD’s ‘Mehangai Dayan’ in Bihar, Trinamool Congress’ ‘Naay Amor Badal Chai’ and ‘Ma Maati Manush’ in West Bengal have not only been liked by the people but have also drawn results in the party’s stride.”
