Shillong, Feb 22 (UNI) Meghalaya is always crazy about music and no body knows it more than the politicians.
The Congress today hired Amit Paul of Indian Idol fame to drum up support for them. ''We have got Amit Paul. He is a craze in Meghalaya and for us it is a big bonus,'' said Congress leader and Meghalaya in charge of Congress Margaret Alva.
Notably it was her son Nikil Alva's of Miditech which produced the 'Indian Idol' contest. ''He will be singing for us both in the Khasi Jaintia hills as well as in Garo Hills,'' said Mrs Alva.
Such is the craze for Amit Paul that almost every political party tried to rope him but eventually the Miditech connection swung it in favour of Congress.
According to Mrs Alva, he will be singing in at least 4-5 Congress election rallies every day and shall be criss-crossing the state in the next few days as the campaigning is coming to an end on March 1.
