Popular singer of  Assam Zubeen Garg on Saturday lambasts Assam State BJP president Ranjeet Dass while reiterating his firm stands against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016.

“No matter what, I will always speak the truth,” the singer said reacting to the remarks made by Assam BJP president Ranjeet Dass on the singer’s stand on the Bill.

Zubeen said, “I am not a political person, I am not Congressi, nor do I support BJP.”

Zubeen Garg has called upon the people of Assam to take part in the Bajra Ninad programme organised by All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) along with 30 other organisations of ethnic communities  on January 23, in protest against the much-debated Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016.

Ranjeet Dass had earlier said that Zubeen Garg should refrain from raising  insubstantial issues in reference to the singer’s efforts to whip up opposition to the contentious Bill.

Das had also said that “People of Assam loves Zubeen and that’s the sole reason he was chosen to sing Assam BJP’s campaign song for 2016 elections.”

Zubeen Garg has been speaking strongly against Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and even made an appeal to Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to get the Bill scrapped.
