On Saturday, Punjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh landed at Singhu border where thousands of farmers have been protesting for over ten days demanding the government to withdraw . Not only has the actor shown solidarity by standing by the farmers, but has reportedly donated Rs. 1 core to purchase warm clothes for the farmers who are protesting at the border during the winter season.
From the day the protests began, Diljit has been showing his support for the farmers through social media. He even had a Twitter feud with actress Kangana Ranaut who made ‘derogatory’ remarks about the ongoing protest and an aged woman who participated in the agitation.
On Saturday, while addressing the farmers gathered at Singhu border, Diljit said, ” I have come here to listen, not speak. Thank you to the farmers from Punjab and Haryana. You have created history once again.”
He also spoke in Hindi with a remark that seemed to have stemmed after his Twitter feud with Kangana. “Hindi main bhi bol raha hun phir badh me Google na karna pade (I am also speaking in Hindi so that one need not Google what I am saying again)”.
“I want to say to the government- Do not divert from the issues. There is no other discussion going on here apart from that related to farmers. I also want to urge the media to support us, these farmers are sitting peacefully with their demands, please show that and support us. All are sitting peacefully. There is no talk of bloodshed. Everyone twists [facts] on Twitter,” he added urging the government to accept the demands by farmers.
