    Tej And Family To Receive Bhupen Hazarika’s Bharat Ratna

    Guwahati: Soon after the Rashtrapati Bhawan made an announcement that India’s highest civilian award – Bharat Ratna will be given posthumously to the legendary singer from Assam Bhupen Hazarika on August 8th, 2019, in New Delhi, his son Tej Hazarika announced his participation in the event.

    Tej took to Facebook and wrote, “Happy to announce that on August 8th, my family and I will be at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi, thanks to the Home Ministry of the Indian Government, to receive the Bharat Ratna that my father Dr Bhupen Hazarika was awarded posthumously last year. This is India’s highest civilian award and it is a really big deal and a great honor given Bhupenda in the grand scheme of things Indian as well for us, his family and his fans.”

    The government had on January 25th, 2019 announced that Bhupen, also known as the ‘Bard of the Brahmaputra’, would be conferred India’s highest civilian honour posthumously, along with former President Pranab Mukherjee and the late social activist Nanaji Deshmukh.

    Opposing the Bharatiya Janata Party’s move to implement the “unpopular” Citizenship(Amendment) Bill, Tej on February 12th, 2019 wrote on Facebook that his father’s name and words were being invoked and celebrated publicly while plans were afoot to pass the “painfully unpopular” Bill against the wish of the people of the Northeast. In a Facebook post, Tez said that the Bill would, in reality, be in direct opposition to what “Bhupenda believed in his heart of hearts”.
