Rihanna’s tweet angered the supporters of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) who criticized the international singer. While the Indian actress Kangana Ranaut also lambasted Rihanna and called her a fool.
No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA…

It is to be noted that tens of thousands of farmers have camped out on the outskirts of New Delhi for more than two months, demanding the withdrawal of new agricultural laws that they say will benefit private buyers at the expense of growers.
The protests turned violent on Jan 26, when farmers broke into the historic Red Fort complex, with one protester killed and hundreds injured.
Talks between the government and the protest leaders have so far failed.
