Last week in Singhu, on the Delhi-Haryana border, hundreds of pizzas were distributed among protesters camping against the government’s controversial agricultural laws.
“The farmers who made the dough for pizzas can also afford to have one themselves,” said Shanbir Singh Sandhu, who organized the festival with his four friends, quoted by the PTI news agency.
While there were many who praised the initiative, called “Pizza Langar”; Some on social media claimed the protests had been hijacked.
Farmers Consuming Poison have never been a problem, but Farmers who eat pizza are NEWS !!!!!

That’s a good point! You only see the pizzas that are served to the protesters but you have never seen them often when the farmers live too much! It’s a sad world that corrupted my people like Mod #ModiHaiAmbaniKa # FarmerProtest2020 #IStandWithFarmers

Every ingredient in these pizzas is made from scratch by the farmers. So hell, anyone who thinks the farmers don’t have a fucking right to eat them! #FarmersProtest
