Famouse Bollywood singer Zubeen garg criticizes Assam CM Sarbananda sonowal for the citizenship amendment bill 2016.
Garg posted a letter on Facebook on January 8 addressed to Sonowal.
“The Citizenship Bill will never be accepted. I have been hearing since my childhood that Bangladeshis will be weeded out of Assam and it saddens me that the people who were a part of the agitation against illegal foreigners are now part of the government and pushing for the passage of the Bill,There are more important issues to look after rather than sitting beside Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and clapping his hands. He (Sonowal) might not be ashamed of his act, we are,”
Zubeen also writes in his letter that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, the Joint Parliamentary Committee and Sonowal have all “fooled the people of Assam.” he further urged the government to rethink the bill.
