Diljit Dosanjh has been supporting farmers in their protest against the farm bills, which makes them 'slaves of the capitalist'. The singer-actor has welcomed the decision of farmer organisations to hold a nationwide bandh today.

"25 september. We all withstand with the farmer community. Every single person of all age groups from Punjab is standing with the farmers. People calling it right to the bill passed, atleast try to talk to the farmers. Punjabi language has been eradicated from Government Languages in Jammu and Kashmir. What is this happening people? (sic)" Dosanjh posted on Instagram.
