Guwahati : On the eve of Silpi Divas, Assam’s heartthrob and singing sensation of Assam Zubeen Garg has requested everyone in the state to unite and protest against the contentious Citizenship Bill, 2016.
Zubeen Garg went on to say that it was a mistake on his part to sing a song for the BJP during 2014 assembly election campaign. Taking part in a programme at Ahotguri under Morigaon district, Zubeen Garg said, “Sometimes I feel it was my mistake to sing for BJP during the election campaign of 2014.”
Zubeen has always been quite vocal of his stance against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and now he has declared a series of protests against the government. Speaking at Ahotguri, Zubeen also asked the people of Assam to unite. He said, “We should be all together against it.”
On Wednesday itself, Zubeen visited AASU office in Guwahati and discussed the Bill with AASU adviser Samujjal Bhattacharya. Talking to media in Guwahati Zubeen said that he is composing in opposition to the CAB, which is likely to be released on January 22, at Kalaguru festival.
Zubeen will also observe ‘Sankalpa Divas’ on the occasion of ‘Silpi Divas’ on Thursday today in Tezpur. Earlier, the singing superstar had penned an open letter to Assam Chief Minister Sonowal to express his opposition to the Bill. He had lashed out at Sonowal for supporting the controversial Bill.
