NEW DELHI: In the company of Chairman Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and PPCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, renowned Punjabi musician and rapper Sidhu Moosewala joined the Congress party on Friday.
After getting accepted into the party, Moosewala stated that he began his music career four years ago and was prepared to take a significant leap in his life. "In my village, I still live in the same house." My father is a retired army officer, and my mother works as a sarpanch. Bathinda and Mansa residents in my neighbourhood are linked to me. "They have high hopes for me," he explained.
"I'm not in politics for the glory or the prestige." I would like to be a part of the system in order to change it. I'm running for Congress to help peoples choices and voices be heard. I'm joining the Congress since the party's leaders are from working-class backgrounds. Cabinet Member Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, for example, came from a poor background," he continued.
Channi described Moosewala's entry into the Congress as a "great day" in the state's political sphere, saying he "knows the views of the young and offers them guidance." "We are adopting Sidhu Moosewala into party fold," Sidhu stated earlier, welcome Moosewala into the fold. He'll battle for us in the election."
Harish Chaudhary, AICC Secretary, greeted him, adding he has "raised a voice not just in Punjab but throughout the world." He added that when the farmers were agitating, Moosewala's was one of the most powerful voices.
Raja Warring had a key role in persuading Moosewala to join the Congress Party. Channi and Sidhu had a discussion with him this morning at Warring's house.
The year before, the Punjab police charged Moosewala with violating the Arms Act by inciting violence and gun culture in one of his songs. He had already been arrested in another instance when photos of him using an AK47 gun at a firing range during the Covid-19 epidemic went popular on social media. Before entering the Congress, Moose Wala released his newest single, "Satisfy," around two weeks ago, in which he sings that he is content with whatever God has given him.
