Guwahati: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has appreciated popular singer Zubeen Garg for supporting his development initiatives adopted by the state government.
Terming Zubeen as his brother and a rare mega star, prominent music composer Vishal Dadlani also lauded the Assam-based singer for his courage to say things loudly.
In a Twitter message, the Delhi CM wrote, “Thank u @zubeengarg1. If we have to take our beloved country on the path of progress, we MUST tackle health and education in mission mode.”
Earlier, in a video clipping, which has gone viral on social media, Garg was seen addressing a public rally to register his protest against the Centre’s move on Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA). The popular singer from Assam had said, “Kejriwal is not from the BJP party. I visit Delhi quite frequently. Few days ago, I was there to perform four or five of my shows. Even the auto rickshaw drivers in Delhi admire Kejriwal. Behind the auto rickshaws it’s written as ‘I love Kejriwal’.”
Appreciating various development works initiated by the Delhi chief minister, Zuben said, “I enquired about the various development works adopted by the Delhi chief minister. That man has done lots of works ranging from education, health to other development-related works. We need such initiative in Assam also. But in Assam no political parties have taken such initiative, be it Congress, BJP or the AGP.”
Earlier, reacting to Zubeen’s statement, one of the leading music composers of Bollywood, Vishal Dadlani in a Tweeter message wrote: Every Indian will eventually see this themselves. My brother @zubeengarg1is a rare megastar with the standing & courage to say it out loud. Proud of @ArvindKejriwal & #AAP, a story that’s just begun. Bahut aage jaana hai, aur sabko saath le jaana hai. #LageRahoKejriwal.
