According to sources, Assamese singer Zubeen Garg posted an emotional letter on Facebook addressed to Sonowal on Tuesday. Even artistes and singers came out on the streets during the Assam bandh to protest against the controversial bill.

Talking to media persons, Garg threatened to launch an agitation by himself if the Chief Minister failed to take measures to scrap the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill within seven days. Garg said, “I won’t be in Assam for one week. It will be good if Sarba da takes some action before my return. Otherwise this time I will agitate on my own.”
