Guwahati, Feb 25 (UNI) With Anamika Choudhury preparing for the final showdown in Zee TV's 'Saregamapa Li'l Champs' in distant London, the people of her home state Assam have been drumming up support for the latest singing sensation from the North East.
The region may have failed to place the winner's crown on Amit Paul in Sony TV's 'Indian Idol' last year, but they are vowing to repeat the feat they achieved with Debojit Saha when the latter notched the top spot in Zee TV's 'Saregamapa Voice of India' a couple of seasons back.
The fact that Anamika is vying to win Zee TV's show for the kids that Debojit won in the general category only adds luck to her favour.
But not to leave it to luck alone, the residents of her home town Mariani and neighbouring Jorhat are touring the state and neighbouring Meghalaya to win maximum support for the little singer.
Marinai MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi, who is leading the motorcycle rally that arrived at Guwahati today, said, ''We appeal to the people of the NE to vote for this little budding star and establish before the nation that NE has talent in abundance.'' He informed that the rally would proceed to Shillong tomorrow, before returning to Mariani, passing through Morigaon-Tezpur route.
They also plan to take out similar rallies across eastern Assam before voting lines close on March one.
The mass frenzy surrounding Anamika was on display when she visited her home last week, with police having to be called out to control crowds during her maiden performance on home turf.
