Many are of the view that “Patiala Pegg” tends to promote alcoholism while staunch fans of Diljit Dosanjh says that the song was just for ‘entertainment’.

In a serious response to “Patiala Pegg”, the Sikh Voice, said that artists like Diljit Dosanjh should think about ruined state of Punjab’s youth before promoting alcoholism. The Sikh Voice in an audio release addressed to Diljit Dosanjh says: “you are promoting such an element that has ruined lives of enormous youth in Punjab”.
