Punjab : Actor Diljit Dosanjh on Monday slammed people on social media who criticized farmers for having pizza during the protest alongside Delhi borders against the new reforms in the farm bill.

The 36-year-old actor, who has been supporting the protest by farmers, tweeted a picture that read, "Farmers consuming poison was never a concern but farmers eating pizza is news."

Last week, thousands of pizzas were delivered to the protestors at Singhu border as they sat on roads demanding scrapping of three new laws in the farm bill.

"The farmers who gave the dough for pizzas can also afford to have one themselves," Shanbir Singh Sandhu, who organised the feast with his four friends, was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

On social media, many people hailed the effort and tagged it to be a "pizza langar".

Meanwhile, some of the people raised questions on who is funding all this as many of the debt-ridden farmers had reportedly killed themselves in recent times.

Since the protest begun, Diljit Dosanjh has been sharing his thoughts over the agitation. Recently, he was also involved in a verbal spat with Kangana Ranaut over her remarks over Bilkis Bano, an old-age agitator. (Read: Diljit slams Kangana)
