There is no hiding to the extent to which farmers are protesting in and around national capital New Delhi for almost two weeks now. Having brought along all basic necessities with them from Punjab and Haryana, the farmers have repeatedly laid emphasis on remaining in Delhi till the time the central government doesn’t revoke these laws.
While the widespread protest has received ample support from almost all high-profile names of the Punjabi entertainment industry, some of the Bollywood celebrities have also been vocal across social media platforms regarding support for the same.
As far as cricketers are concerned, Punjab players such as Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Harpreet Brar and Arshdeep Singh have been regularly posting in support of the farmers.
