In this way, the voice of farmers will also spread to those who do not know much about it.”
Kamaldeep’s father Prem Singh Goyat also fully supported the move and said that ”This message of farmers should reach everyone. Therefore, we have printed ‘No Farmer No Food’ on the card. If the farmer is not farming then how will we eat food. We support this movement, so we have done this work. We have got 300 wedding cards printed”.
Recently, a newlywed Sikh couple in Uttarakhand returned home from the wedding venue on a tractor instead of a car. During the wedding, the couple played songs that supported the farmers’ cause and even their attendees were seen raising pro-farmer slogans.
