GUWAHATI: Zubeen Garg, who had been quite vocal against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, was seen crying for jati (community) and mati (land) on Saturday while visiting state’s agriculture minister Atul Bora at his government residence located at Dispur, here.
At a time when the people and organisations of the state were seen struggling to intensify the movement against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act amid Covid-19 pandemic, youth icon (?) Zubeen Garg was found busy meeting the ruling BJP Ministers one after the other to fulfil one of his luxurious projects, ‘Brindaban Supar Mart’.
As such, till Saturday, Zubeen was seen quite comfortable in forgetting the sacrifices and concern of the native Assamese against the CAA.
Earlier than this, Zubeen also visited the state’s chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and discussed the same project, Brindaban Super Mart.
To achieve government support in materialising the ‘Brindaban Super Mart,’ Zubeen left aside his involvement with the anti-CAA movement and cried for jati (community) and mati (land) while meeting state’s agriculture minister Atul Bora.
As a reward, agriculture minister Bora said that after discussing with Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, the state government has proposed singer Zubeen Garg as the brand ambassador for the agriculture and allied sectors.
Minister Bora said, “After discussing with chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, we have proposed Zubeen Garg to become the brand ambassador for agriculture and allied sectors.”
The Minister further said, “To revive the economy of the state, particularly after the pandemic, Assam must concentrate on agriculture production and allied sectors. We believe involvement of a personality like Zubeen will motivate thousands to concentrate in agriculture and allied sectors. We are happy that Zubeen has agreed to the offer.”
Expressing his pleasure over Bora’s proposal, Zubeen said, “I am happy and believe that the offer given to me by the state government will open the path for working and achieve the goal. I have come to explore the possibility lies with various schemes of the government. We are planning big taking along the entire community (Jati) with us. Without mati (land), jati (community) will never survive. Only mati will protect us.”
Zubeen further said, “After experiencing the Covid-19 pandemic, youths of the state are gearing up to take risks for their survival. That is a positive sign. Apart from depressing, Covid-19 pandemic has also given us a positive thought. Since the plan is big, it will take time. We will achieve progress step by step. I need cooperation from the entire youths of the state to achieve success in this plan, ‘Brindaban Super Mart’.”
