GUWAHATI: One of the most popular singers from Assam, Angarag Papon Mahanta has voiced his opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which has been passed in Lok Sabha on January 8 notwithstanding protests in the region.
Reports published a section of local media said the singer (Papon) stated that if the bill was enacted, the colourful culture of the state would be hampered and that the people of Assam could allow to happen.
Papon’s announcement came in the wake of singer and filmmaker Zubeen Garg’s open letter on social media regarding the passing of the contentious bill that has created a storm in the state.
Papon reportedly supported singer Zubeen Garg’s open letter posted on Facebook announcing his intention to take serious steps to oppose the Citizenship (Amemdment) Bill, if Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal failed to take any step to get it scrapped.
It may be mentioned that Zubeen Garg on Tuesday threatened to launch an agitation by himself if Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal failed to take measures to get the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill scrapped within seven days.
