Trend of party songs turns election into festivity

ISLAMABAD: The emerging trend of preparing election campaign songs by most of the political parties ahead of general elections have turned the activity into a big festival especially for the youngsters who are attracted to visit the election camps for enjoyment purposes.

National songs have gained significant place in the history of Pakistan. Either it was war or any celebration moment, national songs have played vital role in inspiring, motivating and rejuvenating the nation with thought provoking messages.

The trend of playing national songs by political parties was started by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf during its sit-in in federal capital and got popularity among people after which other political parties started following the trend.

Conveying messages through genre of songs influence the people more instead of boring speeches of the political personalities, Amina Khizer, a young supporter of PTI said.

“Speeches with hard tone and harsh language cannot convey the message effectively and win the hearts of young voters, however, songs can positively impact their minds and hearts”, she said.

Qasim Ali, a supporter of Pakistan Muslim League (N) said: “We are a fun loving nation and we love to listen and focus on the messages disseminated in lighter not rigid way.

It is a human psychology that softness always creates deep impact on the hearts of people”.

Thanks to the trendsetters, election will be no more boring activity. Addition of musical representation for highlighting party manifesto and priorities will attract more voters to take part in the election process, he said.

It has been observed that all the major political parties including Pakistan Muslim League (N), PTI, Pakistan People’s Party, Awami National Party and Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) are hiring local singers for preparing songs for election campaign. This process will ultimately bring good business to the local singers,  musicians and music studios across the country.–APP
