The singer announces that he will observe ‘Sankalpa Day’ on Shilpi Diwas in Tezpur on Jan 17 to show his opposition to Citizenship (Amendment) Bill
Guwahati: Continuing his opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, singer Zubeen Garg on Tuesday urged other artistes of the state to join him in a protest on January 17.
In a Facebook post, Garg announced that he will observe ‘Sankalpa Day’ on the occasion of Shilpi Diwas in Tezpur on January 17 in this regard.
The protest is being held in association with the Kolaguru Artists’ Foundation. While sharing the details of the protest in the Facebook post, Garg wrote: "In the name of Assam, let us unite."
This is not the first time that Garg has registered his protest on social media. On Sunday, after serving an 'ultimatum' to Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal but getting no response till then, he took to social media once again.
In a short but sharp post on Twitter as well as on Facebook, Garg had written:
"Dear Sarbananda Sonowal Da,
Wrote a letter to you few days back. Guess you are too busy counting the black flags to respond.
So, can I get the votes back that you earned using my voice in 2016?
I am ready to refund the remuneration."
