Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala joins Congress

Sidhu Moosewala, 28, faces many cases that accuse him of glorifying guns and violence through his songs. But Navjot Sidhu stonewalled questions on the subject. The Punjabi rapper is likely to contest the polls from Mansa, his hometown.

Moosewala, after being taken into the party fold, said he had started his music career four years ago, but was now ready to take a new step in his life. “I still Iive in the same house in my village. My father is an ex-serviceman and my mother is a sarpanch. Residents of my area, Bathinda and Mansa, are associated with me. They have expectations from me,” he said.

“I am not entering politics for status or to earn praise. I want to become a part of the system to transform it. I am joining the Congress to raise the voices of the people. I am joining the Congress as the party has leaders who have come from common families. For instance, cabinet minister Amrinder Singh Raja Warring has risen from a common family,” he added.

Sidhu Moosewala, whose favoured theme is to depict the charms of bucolic life in his videos, has also been accused of glorifying caste divides. His “gangster rap” has a sizeable fan following.

Welcoming Moose Wala into the party, Channi said the rapper became a “big artist with his sheer hard work and won hearts millions of people with his songs”. Sidhu, meanwhile, tweeted a pun on sharing his name with the singer.

Sidhu Moosewala was very vocal during the farmers’ agitation against the three farm laws, which have now been repealed. He lent his support to “Chalo Delhi” protest call by farmers’ associations.

In December 2020, Moose Wala reached Tikri Border where farmers were protesting and asked the central government to address farmers’ concerns related to three farm laws.
