Couldn’t inaugurate ‘Zubeen Garg Bridge’, villagers pray for speedy recovery of Heartthrob


Guwahati: Assam’s popular singer Zubeen Garg is rightfully called the heartthrob of the state. Villagers of Tengapani in Tinsukia district have expressed their love for Zubeen and wished for the well-being of the singer by lighting a thousand diyas on the bank of the Na Dihing river in Tinsukia district on Saturday.

Residents of the village, the last and remote village along the Assam-Arunachal border, have constructed a 490-metre bamboo bridge over Na-Dihing River which has been named after the popular singer.

Zubeen was to inaugurate the bridge on the Na Dihing in Tinsukia district at 10am on Saturday.

But on Friday, in the middle of a performance in Town Club, Guwahati, Zubeen fainted. He was rushed to Nemcare Hospital in the city. He is out of danger now but is still under observation.

People of the Tengapani village are wishing for his quick recovery so that he can inaugurate the bridge.

According to the villagers, singer Zubeen is a great social worker, and has always stood for the people of Assam. So they have decided to name the bridge in the name of popular singer.
