Have some shame, rise above politics: Diljit Dosanjh reacts to trolls slamming him for supporting farmers' protest in Punjab


Farmers in the state of Punjab, on September 25, were out on the streets to protest against three new bills passed by the parliament. The Farmers' bills, according to the Government will make it easier for farmers to sell their produce directly to private buyers and will allow them to enter into a contract with private companies which will stimulate growth. Extending support to the farmers of Punjab, Diljit Dosanjh shared a message on social media that assured them that they have his backing. 

However, Diljit's statement didn't go down well with many who said the farmers protesting for their vested interests. A furious Diljit replied to a user's tweet and asked naysayers to have 'some shame'. Saying everything isn't politics, the actor wrote, "Yes, entire Punjab has taken to streets for the sake of politics. Please use your brains, not everything is about politics. Have some shame and stop it."

Replying to another troll, the actor tweeted, "Son, rise above the politics. This is about the farmer, don’t bring politics into everything" Soon after Diljit replied to them, the users deleted their posts from Twitter.

Diljit, on September 24, shared a note in Punjabi about the protest and wrote, "25 September. We all will stand with the farmer community. Every single person of all age groups from Punjab is standing with the farmers. Everyone who is defending the bill, at least try to talk to the farmers. Punjabi language has been eradicated from Government languages in Jammu and Kashmir. What is happening?"
