Many singers from Punjab have come out with songs challenging the Union Government over the issue of the three farm laws.

Singers Kanwar Grewal and Harf Cheema have come out with a new song 'Jatta khich tyari, pecha pae gaya Centre naal' on the standoff between farmers and the Centre over the agrarian laws.

The video of the song showcases aged farmers and women participating in protests. Earlier, Harf Cheema had composed a song 'Tera vaah peya eh kihde naal, tainu dasange sarkare ni' (Listen government, we'll tell you what you are up against)."

Jass Bajwa has also come out with a song saying, 'Centre di sarkaar rahi sada Jatta layi gaddar, Jatta tagda hoja (The Centre has always been a traitor for the Jatt farmer, the Jatts must strengthen themselves)."

Similarly Korala Maan's song also warns the Centre not to compel farmers to become rebels by saying 'Dilliye khyal rakh layi, kite kahi aale modhe te bandook na aa je' (Delhi better be careful, lest the shoulders carrying agri tools start carrying weapons).

Elly Mangat's song 'Baghi Kisan' invokes Baghel Singh, the Sikh general who in late 18th century launched an attack on Delhi and inflicted several defeats on the Mughals.

Reminding the Modi government of Baghel Singh, the song tells the government, 'Lagda Baghel Singh yaad tainu nahi reha nai' (It seems you have forgotten Baghel Singh).

Protesting farmers are also not behind as they have come out and composed songs in support of their ongoing agitation against the Narendra Modi government.

Apart from these, many Punjabi singers are openly sharing the stage at farmers' agitation since the protests started on September 25. Most of the singers are claiming that they were sons of farmers and whatever they were today was due to farmers.
