Shillong, Oct. 22: Composed on the lines of Eminem, the breakaway faction of the ANVC on Sunday released Kupatiani (an advice) —“a Garo rap song” which speaks about deteriorating situation in Garo hills.
The rap song is part of six other songs which were released by ANVC (B) chairman Rimpu N. Marak to commemorate the outfit’s foundation day.
“These songs will be distributed to the people via mobiles, including a unique ‘Garo Rap Song’ titled Kupatiani which is composed on the lines of Eminem and speaks strongly about deteriorating situation in Garo hills,” ANVC (B) “publicity secretary” Doang Shira said in a statement.
Other songs include Achik Asong, Mikrakbo, Sengani Chasong, Tangna onbo angni janggiko and Bisan Sal.
Bisan sal speaks about childhood days.
“The songs are factually-based and speak about the present situation in Garo hills and are in no way intended to bring in confusion and misunderstanding. Videos will be released soon to raise funds for maintaining the camp,” Shira said.
The group commemorated its foundation day with villagers and its cadres at Eden Bari camp, Tura, in the West Garo Hills.
The outfit’s leaders, Shira said, stressed the need to abide by the group’s policy for the cause of the people and peace in the area.
“However, Rimpu warned of pseudo ANVC(B) cadres who are mostly deserters and trying to malign the organisation by carrying out illegal activities in the name of the organisation,” Shira said.
Most of these cadres had joined the United A’chik Liberation Army (UALA) and some formed new organisations to pump up money, he said, adding that people should not believe any individual demanding money or issuing threats in the name of the ANVC (B).
