Amid all the in Punjab and Kangana Ranaut’s barbs against him, Diljit Dosanjh has shared a post about his home state. He took to Instagram to share a message, after Kangana hinted that he would soon be arrested for ‘supporting’ Khalistanis.
In an Instagram Story, Diljit shared a note in Punjabi that loosely translates to ‘may my Punjab keep thriving’. He also added a folded hands emoji to his post.
This comes after Kangana’s post in which she warned Diljit by telling him that ‘pols’ (police) will soon be after him. “All those who supported Khalistanis remember next number tumhara hai, pols aa chuki hai, yeh woh waqt nahi hai jab koi bhi kuch bhi karta tha, desh ke saath gaddari ya tukde karne ki koshish ab mehengi padegi (Remember next up in you. The police is here. One cannot do whatever they wish to anymore. Betraying the country or wanting to destroy it will cost you big time),” she wrote.
All this is happening as Amritpal Singh continues to evade police for the fifth consecutive day. Punjab Police on Tuesday said they have arrested 154 people for disturbing ‘peace and harmony’ in the state. The Punjab government had on Tuesday extended the suspension of mobile internet and SMS services in Tarn Taran, Ferozepur, Moga, Sangrur, Ajnala sub-division in Amritsar and a few areas in Mohali till Thursday noon, though curbs were lifted from the rest of the state from Tuesday noon.
Kangana and Diljit, meanwhile, had feuded in 2020 as well over the Farmer’s protests. It began with him referring to a tweet posted by her in which she wrongly identified an old woman at the ongoing farmers’ protest as Bilkis, the face of the Shaheen Bagh protest. He also reacted to Kangana’s comments about him–how she asked him to say that he is ‘not a Khalistani’ but he did not say it. Diljit called it all a ‘drama’.
