Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh has been making headlines ever since his Twitter feud with actor Kangana Ranaut went viral.

Now, reportedly, the singer has donated Rs 1 crore to purchase warm clothes for the protestors.

Diljit has been a vocal supporter of the farmers.

Punjabi singer Singga revealed on his verified Instagram account that Diljit donated Rs 1 crore towards the cause without making a big deal about it.

Expressing his gratitude, Singga said in Punjabi: “Thank you brother, you gave Rs 1 crore for the farmers, for their warm clothes, and nobody knows. You didn’t post about it. Nowadays people can’t shut up after donating Rs 10.”

On Saturday, Diljit was spotted at the farmers' protests at Delhi border, and urged the government to meet their demands.

Meanwhile, addressing the farmers at the Singhu border, he said: “Hats off to all of you farmers, you have created a new history. This history would be narrated to future generations. Farmers’ issues shouldn’t be diverted by anyone.”

“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. Things are twisted on Twitter but the truth is that farmers are protesting peacefully, nobody is talking about bloodshed here,” he concluded.
