Bollywood playback singer Angarag Mahanta (Papon) Thursday opposed the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill as it hurts the Assamese sentiments.
''We promote Assamese culture across the globe and if we cannot present it in our own state, it will be lost and we cannot allow it to happen'', the singer, who hails from Assam, told reporters.
''There can be no two opinions that the Assamese sentiment has been hurt and I extend my full support to Zubeen da on the stand he has taken on the Bill'', he added.
He also said that if everyone is opposing the Bill, then why is the government not re-considering it.
