For the unversed, Ajay Devgn had tweeted on farmers’ protest when international star Rihanna came in support of the ongoing farmers’ protest. Ajay wrote, “Don’t fall for any false propaganda against India or Indian policies. It’s important to stand united at this hour w/o any infighting.”
International pop star Rihanna became the first global name to voice her support to the ongoing farmer’s agitation while criticizing the internet shutdown at the protest site. The 32-year-old singer, who has over 100 million followers on Twitter, took to the microblogging site and shared a CNN news article headlined, “India cuts internet around New Delhi as protesting farmers clash with police.
“Why aren’t we talking about this? #FarmersProtest,” Rihanna wrote.
Thousands of farmers, mainly from Punjab and Haryana, have been camping at several Delhi border points since November last year, demanding the government to repeal the three farm laws and legal guarantee of minimum support price (MSP) for their crops.
