Udta Punjab star Diljit Dosanjh joins protesting farmers, requests Govt to accept demands

Eastern Times, December 5, 2020New Delhi: Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh joined the farmers’ protests at Delhi’s Singhu border on Saturday and asked the demonstrators to be patient and hold a peaceful agitation while requesting the government to accept their demands.

Days after engaging in a bitter Twitter war with Hindi film actress Kangana Ranaut over the farmers’ protests, Dosanjh reached the protest site and listened to the speeches by farmer leaders. The 36-year-old actor then took the stage and addressed the crowds in Punjabi.

“I am not here to talk but only listen. You people are creating history once again.

I used to listen to stories that Punjabis are full of energy but I’m witnessing it for the first time,” Dosanjh said.

To the agitating farmers, his message was: be patient and peaceful in your protests. “This is the only way we can win this fight. Stories of these days will definitely be told in future,” he said, while thanking the people who joined the protest from Haryana.

The Punjabi actor then switched to Hindi to communicate to the  media present at the site.

Referring to his ugly war-of-words with Ranaut, Dosanjh said unlike the narrative being spread on Twitter, the farmers’ agitation has been “peaceful”.

“If you are listening to us, there’s no other issue than that of farmers being talked about here. Please don’t divert issues. The government should accept the demands of the farmers.
