Diljit Dosanjh, the actor-singer from the heartlands of India, is speaking up for rights of the farmers in the country. He posted on Twitter about saving farmers and protesting against ‘Kisan virodhi bill’. One Twitter user asked him to not spread ‘fake news’ and enquired if he knew the points that the farmers are against. Diljit had an answer. He replied pointing out three important concerns that the farmers have. Farmer Bills: What Are The 3 Legislations Brought by Modi Government? Why Are Farmers Protesting? Know All About These.
Diljit said that farmers don’t have the power to decide the rate. Secondly, there is no minimum support price decided (MSP). Lastly, farmers don’t have storage so the limit doesn’t matter. “We Expect FARMERS to Feed the Nation But they can’t decide on the Rate,” he wrote.
