With the advent of Rongali Bihu in Assam, craze for singers’ performances in Assam have begun. But the news of Papon not performing at any of the Bihu concerts for this year has increased the curiosity amongst the people. Reports about the organizers allegedly boycotting the singer have been circulating for some time now.
However some of the oldest organizers of Bihu functions are of the opinion that it was his budget that must be the problem as the organizers are facing lots of trouble financially after the implementation of GST. Papon’s attachment with Bihu is different and the incident related to Voice India Kids is different said another organizer. Law shall take its own decision said Dipjyoti Mishra, Secretary of Chandmari Bihu Sanmilani.
On approaching the general public, mixed review was given as some said he should be given a fair chance and should be invited for performances if not done so. Others are of the view that he has committed a blunder and cannot be apologized for his act.
But the fact remains that people in Assam are missing the vibrant performances of the singer and his friendliness and connection with the audiences according to some of his fans.
