Now, rapper hits the nail on the head as Citizenship Bill protests continue

Rapper Rahul Rajkhowa has found a unique way to protest against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill through a hard-hitting rap song. Even as the people are taking to the streets protesting against the BJP-led government’s decision to go ahead with the bill, Rajkhowa released a video on YouTube calling the ‘fake agenda’ of the ruling party.

“Let’s get to the point, and cut the Pragati crap, you had 5 full years to clean up all of the crap. But everytime somebody pointed out a fault. All you argue is, Congress did that,” the Assam singer sang to a peppy beat.

The rapper added that while the government could not even help rescue 15 miners stuck in an illegal coal mine, they are hell bent on helping out people from foreign countries based on their religion.

“Given the area India the most populated, and it just got worse cause of the bill you created. We ain’t even got enough space for the ones that we have. You ain’t doing enough to feed the ones the we have. You ain’t doing enough to shelter the ones that we have. You couldn’t even save 15 miners in the northeast with the whole country watching this. Now fresh immigrants should be a part of this?” he questioned.

Further the rapper highlighted that more people in the country will mean no-jobs, deforestation, erosion and man-animal conflicts.

The controversial bill has somehow united the whole of Northeast as citizens, civil society and political leaders are coming in unison to protest the bill.

Protests continued against the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in Assam over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, with All Assam Students Union (AASU) members waving black flags at chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and labour minister Pallab Lochan Das on Thursday.

Rahul Rajkhowa was best known for his rap against the Vice Chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru University for reducing the number of seats in the institution. He took to his excellent rapping skills to vent his anger on the JNU administration for their decision to trim over 80 per cent seats in M Phil and PhD admissions for 2017-18.
