Farmers protest, Punjab News: Several Punjabi singers have come up and joined the farmers' protest in an order to raise the voice against the three agriculture bills which were passed in the Parliament, earlier this month. Meanwhile, Bhindder Burj, a lyricist, and a music video director said that these protests were a way to raise the voice but it (farmers protest) needs a vision.

Bhindder Burj said that it was good that it was happening as it was the need of the hour. He said that there was a huge number of people gathered outside but no one knows the right way to go forward.

Referring to a LIVE in Mansa on September 25, Bhindder Burj said that he felt sad as the people started leaving the venue while the anchor was asking them to settle down for Sidhu Moose Wala's sake. Although Burj was very proud of Moose Wala that on his one call a huge number of the crowd gathered, he felt bad the people started going just because Sidhu was late.
