Sovereignty Can’t Be Compromised: Sachin on Farmers’ Protest
Sachin Tendulkar tweeted urging India to ‘remain united as a nation’.
Retired Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday spoke about the ongoing protest by farmers. He urged people not to fall for false propagandas against India.
Sachin’s tweet came after international personalities such as Rihanna, Mia Khalifa and Greta Thunberg tweeted in favour of the farmers' protest in the country.
“India’s sovereignty cannot be compromised. External forces can be spectators but not participants. Indians know India and should decide for India. Let's remain united as a nation. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda,” Sachin tweeted.
Bollywood celebrities Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Karan Johar and Suniel Shetty also tweeted on the matter earlier on Wednesday.
They all reacted to a statement by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) about the issue, and celebrities commenting on the issue.
Superstar Akshay Kumar took to Twitter and shared the statement by MEA. He then wrote that efforts are being taken to resolve the issue.
"Farmers constitute an extremely important part of our country. And the efforts being undertaken to resolve their issues are evident. Let's support an amicable resolution, rather than paying attention to anyone creating differences. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda," Akshay wrote.
Actor Ajay Devgn urged everyone to not fall for false propaganda.
"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 #IndiaTogether IndiaAgainstPropaganda," he tweeted.
Filmmaker Karan Johar called the farmers the backbone of India.
"We live in turbulent times and the need of the hour is prudence and patience at every turn. Let us together, make every effort we can to find solutions that work for everyone— our farmers are the backbone of India. Let us not let anyone divide us. #IndiaTogether," Johar wrote.
