Panaji: Renowned folk and pop singer Remo Fernandes has joined Aam aadmi Party (AAP) in Goa.
Remo announced this via his Facebook page Saturday.
Wearing the customary white ‘topi’, Remo photographed himself with a receipt in his left hand and his right gripping the broom, which swept the party to power in the recent Delhi election.
“Yesterday was a historic day for me: for the very first time in my life, I joined a political party. Because, for the first time in my life, I believe in a political party. The AAM AADMI PARTY,” Remo said on his wall Saturday, a post which clocked 1,000 likes and around 170 comments.
Goan by origin, Remo, who lives in the idyllic village of Siolim, 25 km from here, is best known for his several foot-tapping Bollywood numbers.
He is a cult-figure in Goa who first rose to fame in the 1970s and 1980s by lending his music and songs to several popular movements which dealt with social issues like making Konkani Goa’s official language.
