Pradyot triggers controversy by batting for amendment of the national anthem to include northeast

 With the ADC election drawing gradually near Pradyot Kishore is at it again-creating artificial controversies. Having confined himself to pleading for only one community in the state, Pradyot Kishore , known for his newly espoused ethno-centric politics, has demanded a suitable amendment to the national anthem 'Jana Gana Mana' to include the northeast as representation of united India.

The Indian national anthem composed by nobel-laureate Rabindra Nath Tagore cites names of Punjab, Sindhu (Sind in Pakistan), Gujarat , Maratha, Dravir (All four states of south India) Utkala (Orissa) , Banga (Bengal). There are many other states and union territories that do not find mention in the national anthem  but that does not mean they are  outside India and they lack any identity.

But Pradyot seems to have picked  up his new slogan, shrewdly to curry favour with one community by seeming to oppose the other for garnering votes in the ADC election. What ultimately happens to Pradyot's ethno-centric electoral calculation is still a matter of conjecture but it is certain that he will  provide traction to one section by deliberately alienating the other by way of obverse correlation.
