Press Trust India

Posted: Mar 10, 2004 at 1156 hrs IST

Deputy Prime Minister L.K. Advani's Bharat Uday Yatra started from Kanyakumari on a musical note with young and upcoming singer Kailash rendering bharat chamak raha hai song.

The song — India is shining and India is smiling — was sung in both English and Hindi. Ajay Jingran has penned it and its music composed by Anu Malik.

During the course of the Tamil Nadi leg of his yatra, Advani will be accompanied by former test cricketer K Srikanth, who will be campaigning for the party in the coming Lok Sabha polls.

The inaugural function of Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani's Bharat Uday Yatra began in Kanyakumari on Wednesday morning.

BJP president Venkaiah Naidu, who is to flag off the first leg of the campaign, and a galaxy of senior party leaders were present on the podium along with Advani.

A festive atmosphere is pervading the temple town in the southernmost tip of the country with party flags, buntings and huge cut-outs of Advani greeting the onlookers.

Advani would cover several constituencies in Tamil Nadu and Kerala on the first day of the road show. He is slated to address public meetings in Nagercoil and Thiruvananthapuram and scores of brief roadside stop overs before winding up the first day's tour in Kottayam in Kerala.
