Kolkata, Feb 5 : The leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, on Friday asked the BJP-led government at the Centre as to why it is getting so much rattled with the Tweets of international celebrities supporting the farmers’ agitation in India.
“Some of our nationalists pleaded in America that “Aab ki bar, Trump ki sarkar”, what did it mean? When we protested in chorus against the brutality on George Floyd, nobody had questioned us. But when Rihanna and Greta Thunberg sought to express solidarity with the farmers of our country, why are we getting so much rattled,” Chowdhury asked.
The Congress MP from the Berhampore Lok Sabha consituency in West Bengal further said that “we are living in a global village”.
“Just introspect, why should we be afraid of any criticism? We have all grown up eating the food produced by our food-givers,” he said.
Chowdhury said that the Centre should also have expressed solidarity with the farmers.
