The party has come up with a 'Trinamool anthem' in Bengali with lyrics and music by Anupam Roy, best known for his songs in films like 'Autograph' and 'Piku'. A two-minute music video will also be released in the next few days.

"Whether it is the manifesto, the song or the video we have made an earthy content with a classy feel. Throughout the seven-week-long elections in the state we'll keep the campaign fresh," Trinamool's national spokesman and party MP Derek O'Brien told reporters here.

The one-and-a-half minute song 'Paanch bochore bodle geche banglar mukh (The face of Bengal has changed in the last five years) lists out the major achievements of the Mamata Banerjee government and the success of schemes like 'Kanyashree' and 'Sabuj Saathi'.

It also mentions how peace has returned to the Maoist-affected Junglemahal area and Darjeeling hills which was once hit by agitations demanding Gorkhaland state.

Already on YouTube and audio platform Soundcloud, the song is now being released on private FM channels as part of the poll campaign.

"It is on the YouTube channel of the party and will also be put on Mamata Banerjee's Facebook. We are using social media to popularise the song," he said.
