Dr Daljit Singh Cheema, former Education Minister of Punjab and member of Shiromani Akali Dal, shared the same image with Punjabi caption, “ਨਿੱਕੇ ਨਿੱਕੇ ਹੱਥਾ ਨਾਲ ਕਿਸਾਨੀ ਸੰਘਰਸ਼ ਦੇ ਯੋਧਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਲੰਗਰ ਛਕਾਉਂਦੀ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਦੀ ਧੀ।” (The daughter of Punjab feeding the warriors of the peasant struggle with a small hand).

This image is viral on Twitter and Facebook with the same Hindi caption.

Old Image

Alt news performed a reverse image search and came across a Facebook post by the page Guru Ka Langar. It posted the same image on July 14, 2017.

While we were unable to find other details about the image, it was certainly not taken during farmers’ protest. It is, however, noteworthy that several children of farmers have participated in the ongoing protests.
