Earlier this year, international singer Rihanna, porn star Mia Khalifa and climate activist Greta Thunberg had also tweeted in support of the farmers’ agitation in India.
Thousands of farmers, mainly from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at the Delhi border points — Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur — since November, demanding the revocation of Centre’s new farm laws and a legal guarantee on the minimum support price (MSP) for their crops.
On Republic Day, a group of protesters deviated from the route of the farmers’ Tractor Parade and attacked Delhi Police personnel in ITO before storming the Red Fort.
