Puri, Apr 22 (ANI): Renowned sand artist Sudarshan Patnaik created a 'Political Theatre' on the scenic Puri beach in Orissa to motivate people to cast their votes and elect the right candidate.

"Elections are taking place in the country. Everywhere there is some publicity material, which can be seen around. But this sculpture is not for any political party, but is a campaign to motivate the people to go out and cast their vote and elect the right leader," said Patnaik.

The sight of Patnaik toiling hard attracted a lot of people, who seemed quite impressed by his attempt to create awareness amongst the voters.

"The second phase will be held on April 23. So this sculpture is very relevant," said Sibani Mitra, a spectator.

The elections are a big affair and various campaigns and drives have been launched this time to motivate more and more people to exercise their franchise.

The emphasis is largely on youth who are being targeted in these campaigns to cast their votes. By Sharada Lahangir(ANI)
