Diljit Dosanjh reaches Singhu border; urges govt to accept farmers' demands
ANI

Popular singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh was spotted at the Singhu border in the National Capital Region (NCR), extending support to the farmers agitating against the three new farm laws brought in by the central government.

Diljit urged the government to accept the demands of the farmer.

"I want to urge the government to accept the demand of farmers. I would also like to urge the media to support us, these farmers are sitting peacefully with their demands, please show that and support us," Diljit said, addressing the farmers and the media.

After addressing the crowd in Punjabi, Diljit shared his views in Hindi and said: "(I am) Talking in Hindi so you don't have to Google."

He urged the media to show how the farmers are sitting peacefully. "Show the reality. There is no khoon-kharaba (bloodshed)," he said.

"Muddon ko na bhatkaya jaye. Koi khoon kharabe ki baat (nahi ho rahi hai). Twitter aur bahut sari baatein hoti hain. Ghumate hain. Hum haath jodhke ke yeh vinti karte hain ke yeh hi dhikhaya jaaye, and yeh ke hum sab peaceful baithe hain (there are attempts to divert the issue. There is no violence. We request you to show that things are peaceful here)," he said.

The singer also sat down with the farmers, and spent some time with them.

Diljit's visit comes after his much-publicised Twitter war with actress Kangana Ranaut earlier this week.

Showing solidarity to farmers protesting against the recently enacted farm laws, 'Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari' actor Diljit Dosanjh took to Twitter to share a post.

"We are farmers, not terrorists," read the tweet.

Actress Kangana Ranaut was on the receiving end of flak from Punjabi stars for 'misidentifying' a woman named Mahinder Kaur at the farmers protest, as Shaheen Bagh activist Bilkis Bano.

Although the “Queen” actor deleted the tweet, many slammed her for peddling fake news. Among the lot was “Good Newwz” actor Diljit Dosanjh.

The 36-year-old took to Twitter and wrote, “Respected MAHINDER KAUR JI Ah Sunn La Ni With Proof @KanganaTeam Banda Ena V Ni Anna Hona Chaida.. Kush v Boli Turi jandi aa ..(Listen to this proof, @KanganaTeam. One should not be this blind. She keeps says anything).”

Kangana quote-tweeted the same and replied, “Ooo Karan johar ke paltu, jo dadi Saheen Baag mein apni citizenship keliye protest kar rahi thi wohi Bilkis Bano dadi ji Farmers ke MSP ke liye bhi protest karti hue dikhi. Mahinder Kaur ji ko toh main janti bhi nahin. Kya drama chalaya hai tum logon ne? Stop this right now.”
