Actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh, who has been backing famers' protest near Delhi borders, today railed against those criticising farmers after pizzas were distributed among demonstrators last week.
The 36-year-old on Monday shared a pricture on his official twitter handle that read: "Farmers consuming poison was never a concern but farmers eating pizza is news."

Earlier, hundreds of pizzas were given out at Singhu on Delhi-Haryana border among demonstrators who have been camping against the Centre's controversial farm laws.
"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 PTI.
While there were many who applauded the act, some on social media claimed the protests had been hijacked.
Not being able to clear their loans, many debt-ridden farmers have ended their lives in the last few years.
Earlier, Diljit Dosanjh had visited the protest site at Delhi-Haryana border in order to show his support. "We have only one request from the Centre... please fulfil the demands of our farmers. Everyone is sitting here peacefully and the entire country is with farmers. This agitation is about farmers," he had said.
The singer-actor had earlier criticised Kangana Ranaut for misidentifying an elderly woman at the farmers' protest as one of the organisers of the Shaheen Bagh demonstration against the centre's controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAA).
