Popular Assamese singer Priyanka Bharali on January 10th, 2020, while reacting to the ban on some artistes in Bihu programs in Dibrugarh, said she does not protest to show off.

I do not protest to show off. The ban on a few singers is not the primary matter for me at this time when the Assamese community is fighting for its identity. They (the Bihu committees) perhaps have no idea that I have been raising voice against the act since the first day,” Bharali said.

While reiterating her opposition to the act, she said, “My decision is firm. I oppose the act strongly.”

It may be mentioned that an umbrella committee of 26 Bihu committees on January 9th, 2020, announced its decision to ban a total of seven Assamese artistes including Bharali, Krishnamoni Chutia in Bihu programmes for supporting the newly enacted Act.
