In a sensational Facebook post, Assam’s Singing Sensation Zubeen Garg has accepted that the voice in the viral video in which he was seen singing “Politics Nokoriba Bandhu” (Don’t do politics, friend) and abusing “Bharat Ratna” by using unparliamentary words belongs to him.

I m gifted for you. I gift myself to you.
I m tired of th constant attempt of yours to destroy me. I have never betrayed anyone, never destroyed anyone, never deprived – then when it comes to me, why you try to tear me apart! You can’t.

Kharghuli is open for you. I m ready to talk. If you have anything, come n talk.
And if you hate me this way, let me leave Assam. I can stay anywhere.
I m gifted for you. I gift myself to you. I m tired of th constant attempt of yours to destroy me. I have never…
