VIJAYAWADA: Increasing the tempo of the demand for Special Category Status for the State, Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan on Tuesday launched a protest music album - ‘Desh Bachao’ with a tag stating ‘Jana Sena raises its voice against divisive and criminal politics’.

The music album was uploaded on Jana Sena Youtube channel on Tuesday and is intended to motivate the youth to take up the cause of ‘Special Category Status’.

In all, the album has six songs and three of them were released on Tuesday on Youtube at regular intervals of 45 minutes each since 1 pm. Within 15 minutes after the first song was released, it went viral and attracted more than 15,000 views.

All the three songs were the remix versions of Pawan Kalyan’s popular songs from his previous movies, mixed with his statements on the Special Category Status. The first song is Travelling Soldier - Bhangra Ladoo remix done by DJ Prithvi Sai.

It has few parts of Pawan Kalyan’s speech at Kakinada meeting. It was originally composed, performed and written by Ramana Gogula for the movie Thammudu starring Pawan Kalyan.

The second song - Naaraju Gakura is also a remix done by DJ Prithvi Sai. The original song was composed by Ramana Gogula for the film Johnny and was written by Telangana Dalit poet ‘Masterji’. Jana Sena chief tweeted that the second song - Naaraju Gakura was conceived after ‘Godhra’ train burning incident, in which Karsevaks were burnt alive leading to communal riots and loss of life. “It left a deep impact on me,” he added.

Pawan Kalyan said the third song ‘Yeh Mera Jahan’ from the film Kushi, was conceived to convey to the youth that they should actively participate in the process of nation building and be aware of selfish elements who pillage our nation. It also conveys to follow in the footsteps of our great leaders and be inspirational to our forthcoming generations.

Speaking about the fourth song, Le Le from the film Gudumba Shankar, he said he has great love and admiration for Bob Marley, Gaddar and Bob Dylan.

He said in his formative years, they have left a profound impact on him that ‘art and music’ should ultimately stand by the needy and suffering.

He said the song was conceived when he read about the incident of the brutal murder of Srilakshmi by one Manohar in front of her classmates.
