Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh criticized those who criticized “langar pizza” at the farmers’ protest near the borders of Delhi last week. The 36-year-old provided support to farmers protesting against the new agricultural bills.
The Punjabi singer posted a picture on Twitter months which read: “Poison-eating farmers have never been a concern, but pizza-eating farmers are new.”
At this, the singer wrote: “Shaa Baa Shey. Badaa Didh Dukheya Tuadha Hain?”

Last week, hundreds of pizzas were distributed in Singhu, on the Delhi-Haryana border, among protesters who campaigned against the government’s controversial agricultural laws.
“Farmers who donated pizza dough can afford to have one,” said Shanbir Singh Sandhu, who co-hosted the party with her four friends, was quoted as saying by PTI news agency.
While there were many who praised the initiative, nicknamed “Pizza Langar”; some on social media claimed that the protests had been hijacked.
Farmers who consume poison have never been a concern, but farmers who eat pizza are NEWS !!!!!

It’s a good idea! They only see the pizza being served to the protesters, but they have not seen it many times when the farmers took their lives! It’s a sad world that has corrupted my staff as a Mod #ModiHaiAmbaniKa # FarmerProtest2020 #IStandWithFarmers

Every ingredient in these pizzas is made by farmers from scratch. So fuck all those who think farmers are not bloodthirsty entitled to eat them! #FarmersProtest
