Singer Zubeen Garg was boycotted by a number of party organisations within the Koch Rajbongshi community and the Kamtapur Autonomous Council.

Garg opposed the idea of Kamtapur becoming a separate state and urged opponents to oppose it.

Zubeen said, “Again separation, this divide and rule policy of whoever it is Congress or BJP I don’t care,” as he interacted with the audience between songs at the Namoni Assam Mohatsav in Goalpara. They plan to divide Assam once more. Since you were born in Assam, you will once again need to create a separate voter’s card for the state of Kamtpur.

Several organisations claimed that following Garg’s remarks, the community members are in a state of shock.

Zubeen Garg won’t be invited to the “Kamtapur Festival,” which will be held at the initiative of Kamtapur Autonomous Council, according to Gokul Barman, chief executive of the Kamtapur Autonomous Council.

“The opinions expressed by Zubeen Garg are his own. It’s unfortunate that Garg said what he did. We kindly request that artists in the future refrain from commenting on such delicate subjects,” he added.

The Kamtapur Festival, whose laikhuta was established today by Barman, will take place at Nakakiti in the Bongaigaon district from February 5 to February 11, 2023.

Hiteshwar Barman, the president of the Kamtapur Autonomous Council, and other councillors were also present.
Recently, there has been an increase in the demand for Kamtapur to become a separate state.

The All Assam Koch Rajbongshi Students Union (AAKRASU) recently held a protest in Golokganj, Dhubri, to call for the creation of the Kamtapur state and the granting of tribal status to the Koch Rajbongshi people.

Members of AAKRASU from various parts of the state had protested the alleged inaction of the government.

The BJP-led governments at the federal and state levels were allegedly using the Koch Rajbongshis for political gain, according to the union.

The union had further stated that if the government did not comply with the long-standing demands of the Koch Rajbongshis, they would protest the government and respond appropriately in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
