Kolkata: Asserting that he was not like other celebrity politicians who "disappear after the polls", famed music composer Bappi Lahiri, contesting the Lok Sabha polls on a BJP ticket, said he aspires to turn his constituency in West Bengal into a tourism hub.

The "Disco King" also plans to set up a music academy in Sreerampur in Hooghly district from where he is contesting.

"People often complain that celebrities after joining politics are not seen once the polls are over. But I am not like them. I would work for development.

I want to bring forth the historical significance of Sreerampur and turn it into a tourism hub," Lahiri said addressing the media here.

Situated on the bank of Hooghly, Sreerampur is a pre-colonial town with a rich history. Part of the Danish settlement, the town was known as "Frederiksnagore" from 1755 to 1845.
