Punjabi Artists from the entertainment industry such as Diljit Dosanjh, Gippy Grewal, Nimrat Khaira, Ammy Virk, Harbhajan Mann, Karamjit Anmol, Gurpreet Ghuggi, Manmohan Waris and Kamal Heer amongst others have taken social media to support the farmers who have been agitated against the Centre over the agriculture bills that have been passed in Lok Sabha recently.

Diljit Dosanjh, singer-actor said, “We oppose anti-farmer Bills. Kisan Bachao, Desh Bachao. Kisan Virodhi Bill Da Asi Sarey Virod Karde Haan (Save farmers, save the country. We all oppose the anti-farmer Bills).”

He has further said that the farmers will not be able to “decide” the rates for their produce and they do not have enough space to store their crops.

 

Gippy Grewal has posted a video of agitated farmers with caption “Save farmers, save the country”.

Singer Ammy Virk tweeted, “I am a farmer’s son first, and then an actor and a singer”.
He stated that in 2011-12, when he recorded his first album, his father had arranged Rs 5 lakh for him by selling their car and taking a loan from a commission agent. Later, when the crop was sold, the loan was paid and his dream got fulfilled, so these Bills would break many a dream. I appeal to jointly protest against these Bills.
