Controversial Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala joined congress.
Controversial Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, who has shown guns and violence in his songs, today joined the Congress, starting his political career. He was welcomed by Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and Congress State President Navjot Singh Sidhu ahead of the Lok Sabha elections to be held in Punjab next year . It is expected that Musewala may contest from his hometown Mansa. It is worth noting that 28-year-old Moosewala is facing several cases for depicting guns and violence in his songs, but Navjot Singh Sidhu avoided questions on this matter.
Sidhu told reporters, “Why are you asking about the issues which are under consideration? Let the people of Punjab decide on Moosewale. Media should not decide.” On the other hand, Chief Minister Channi said, “He has won everyone’s heart. He is the son of a farmer and his father is a former army officer. I am sure he will make the Congress party proud, I welcome him on behalf of the Congress.” “
Navjot Sidhu welcomed Moosewala as a champ
Navjot Sidhu later tweeted a picture with Moosewala in which he welcomed Moosewala as a champ.
Responding to media queries, Musewala said, “This is my first press conference. Just three years back, I started singing. Now after four years I am taking a new step. Manasa is not so developed… A part of the region has raised me, so I will raise my voice from here.”
Sidhu Musewala’s full name is Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu. He is doing engineering and started singing during his college days. Last year, an FIR was registered against him for promoting violence and gun culture because of his song “Sanju”. The case was registered after pictures showing shots being fired with AK-47 rifles at the firing range went viral during the Kovid lockdown. In this song, Sidhu Musewala was seen bragging about the cases going on against him.
Amarinder Singh, then chief minister of Punjab, expressed concern over violence and guns in Punjabi songs and directed the state police not to spare singers who “mislead” the youth.
