Dharmendra Extends Support To Farmers’ Protest, Says ‘Hope They Get Justice’
Legendary actor Dharmendra extends support to farmers amid the ongoing protest and prays for their relief.
Farmers of India are leading a nationwide protest against the new agricultural reforms imposed by the central government. Thousands of people all over the country have now extended support to the protest which is being held at several borders of the nation’s capital. Amidst this, veteran actor Dharmendra also poured in support by posting a tweet on Monday, January 4. In his tweet, the actor prayed that all the farmers who had been protesting for a long time should get justice.
The agitated farmers in thousands of numbers, mainly from Punjab and Haryana, are revolting against the Government reforms for more than a month now. Addressing the same, ahead of the seventh round of talks between the centre and the farmer unions, Dharmendra tweeted in Hindi, “I hope today my farmer brothers get justice. I pray with all my heart. Every noble soul will get relief”.
For the unversed, this isn’t the first time when the legendary actor publicly addressed the issue. In one of his previous tweets, the actor had also requested the centre to resolve the issue of the farm laws. He tweeted, “I am in extreme pain to see the suffering of my farmer brothers. Government should do something fast”.
Along with Dharmendra, many other prominent faces of Bollywood have also come out to raise their voice against the new reforms. Acclaimed singer Diljit Dosanjh, did not only speak for them but also was seen joining the protest. Taapsee Pannu and Priyanka Chopra have also used their social media platform to extend their support.
The protests began when the centre announced the decision of deregulating the sale of crops that enabled private buyers to dominate the marketplace which was previously controlled by government subsidies. The agitation came into force claiming that the new law has weakened small landholder’s place in the market. In addition to it, it has also put them at the risk of losing their businesses entirely to big corporations. On the other hand, the central government assures that these reforms are necessary in order to increase the efficiency of India’s farming sector.
