Guwahati: Assam’s singing sensation Zubeen Garg has once again raised his voice against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. While performing at a musical event in Dharapur on the outskirts of Guwahati on Tuesday, the Ya Ali singer reiterated his stand on the contentious legislation.
“Politicisation of the issue has ended for a while with the elections. But if the government tries to impose the Bill again, I will take to the streets and rebel against it,” said the 47-year-old singer.
Garg, one of the most prominent voices among the young generation of the state, has always taken a stand on social issues and problems concerning the state.
Earlier this year, when the whole state was burning in protest against the Bill, Garg expressed his outburst by writing an open letter to Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, besides posting several updates on social media platforms.
Garg’s frustration also took the shape of a song titled, Politics nokoriba bondhu, which urged the government not to politicise every issue related to the general public.
Meanwhile, at the same function organised on the eve of World Environment Day, Garg asked everyone to plant as many trees as possible and also let the audience know about his upcoming tree plantation initiative in Majuli.
