Puri, Apr 8:
Odisha Election Icon Sudarsan Pattnaik created a sand sculpture at Puri beach today with the message: “When women vote, India wins” to create awareness among women voters and urging them to cast their votes.
Pattnaik created a 7 ft high sand sculpture using about 7 tons of sand to make the sculpture which took five hours to complete. Students of his sand art school joined hands with him in erecting the sculpture.
“The state election commissioner put me as a state icon for the upcoming election. I want to request all the citizen of India to cast their vote as it is their birth right,” said Patnaik.
Sudarsan has so far participated in more than 50 International sand sculpture championships across the world and won many awards for the country.
