Singer Papon has called off his Delhi concert this weekend because his home state “Assam is burning, crying and under curfew”. The singer, whose real name is Angaraag Mahanta, is known for hits such as Jiyein kyun and Moh moh ke dhaage. He was scheduled to perform at a bar in Delhi on Friday.

“Dear Delhi, I am very sorry but I have decided not to do the concert tomorrow at ‘imperfectoshor’ as planned! My home state Assam is burning, crying and under curfew! I won’t be able to entertain you the way I should in my present state of mind,” Papon tweeted on Thursday.

“I know this is unfair on you as you had bought tickets and planned long ahead. I am sure the organizers will take care of that in someway and as promised I’ll see you all on another day in future! I hope you will understand,” he added.
