Controversial Punjabi Singer Sidhu Moosewala Joins Congress

Controversial Punjabi Singer Sidhu Moosewala Joins Congress.

Chandigarh: Sidhu Moosewala, a controversial singer known for flaunting guns and police cases in his song videos, joined Congress today in the run-up to the Punjab elections early next year. Both the Chief Minister of Punjab, Charanjit Singh Channi, and the head of the state Congress, Navjot Singh Sidhu, welcomed him on board.

The Punjabi rapper is likely to contest the polls from Mansa, his hometown.

28-year-old Sidhu Moosewala faces many cases accusing him of glorifying guns and violence through his songs. But Navjot Sidhu blocked questions on the subject.

“Why do you ask about issues that are sub-judicial? Let the people of Punjab decide on it. The media should not decide,” Sidhu told reporters.

Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi added: “He has won everyone’s hearts. 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 give him welcome on behalf of Congress. ”

Later, Navjot Sidhu also tweeted a photo with the most recent congressional recruit, calling him “champion.”

Sidhu Moosewala, whose favorite subject is depicting the charms of bucolic life in his videos, has also been accused of glorifying caste divisions. His “gangster rap” has a huge following.

She belongs to the “village of Moosa” in Mansa and her mother is a village sarpanch.

Responding to media inquiries, he said: “This is my first press conference. Just three years ago I started singing. Now four years later I am taking a new step. Mansa is not so developed … a part of this area He raised me, so I’ll raise my voice from here. ”

Sidhu Moosewala, whose real name is Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, studied engineering and took up music at university.

Last year, he was accused in an FIR of promoting violence and the culture of guns with his song “Sanju”. The case was shelved after footage showing him firing an AK-47 rifle at a shooting range during the Covid lockdown went viral.

In the song, Sidhu Moosewala appears to boast of the cases against him.

The then Chief Minister of Punjab, Amarinder Singh, had expressed concern about violence and weapons in Punjab songs and ordered the state police not to forgive singers who “misled” the youth.

Amarinder Singh resigned from Congress after he was replaced as Chief Minister in September.
