Diljit Dosanjh, Daler Mehndi React To Farm Bills
While singer Daler Mehndi endorsed the new bills, actor Diljit Dosanjh supported the farmer protests against the new reform laws
As the three Farm Bills by the Narendra Modi government were cleared in both the houses, there are divided opinions amongst Punjabi celebrities about the same.
In a video, singer Daler Mehndi addressed himself as a farmer of 20 years and urged his fellowmen to trust the Modi government and to not fall prey to any rumours and negative publicity around the bills. He also went on to appeal to PM Modi to provide indigenous seeds to the sector.
Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh however opposed the new resolution and supported the farmer protests on his social media page. He replied to a user about why he was against the new proposition. According to Dosanjh, it is wrong if those who feed the country cannot determine the rates of their crops themselves.
Singer Jassi in his online post stated that he wished that late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was a farmer, which would have then ensured that this issue became a matter of national importance, as is Sushant’s case today.
Other celebrities who stood in solidarity with the agrarian demonstrators include singer Harbhajan Maan, actress Sargun Mehta and actor Amy Virk.
