New Delhi: India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Wednesday 3 February blasted an international vested interest group working in tandem against india’s interests by underscoring they are trying to enforce their agenda on the farmers protests.
While the MEA came down heavily against the anti-India cartel, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and the Leli (Left-Liberal) gang were gung ho about what’s obviously a global conspiracy against India that got exposed with a tweet by pop singer Rihanna tweeting “why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest” citing a CNN report on farmers’ protest in India.
An External Affairs Ministry statement on Wednesday said:
“The Parliament of India, after a full debate and discussion, passed reformist legislation relating to the agricultural sector. These reforms give expanded market access and provided greater flexibility to farmers. They also pave the way for economically and ecologically sustainable farming. A very small section of farmers in parts of India have some reservations about these reforms. Respecting the sentiments of the protests, the
Government of India has initiated a series of talks with their representatives. Union Ministers have been part of the negotiations, and eleven rounds of talks have already been held. The Government has even offered to keep the laws on hold, an offer iterated by no less than the Prime Minister of India.
Yet, it is unfortunate to see vested interest groups trying to enforce their agenda on these protests, and derail them. This was egregiously witnessed on January 26, India’s Republic Day. A cherished national commemoration, the anniversary of the inauguration of the Constitution of India, was besmirched, and violence and vandalism took place in the Indian capital.
Some of these vested interest groups have also tried to mobilise international support against India. Instigated by such fringe elements, Mahatma Gandhi statues have been desecrated in parts of the world. This is extremely disturbing for India and for civilised society everywhere. Indian police forces have handled these protests with utmost restraint. It may be noted that hundreds of men and women serving in the police have been physically attacked, and in some cases stabbed and seriously wounded.
We would like to emphasise that these protests must be seen in the context of India’s democratic ethos and polity, and the efforts of the Government and the concerned farmer groups to resolve the impasse.
Before rushing to comment on such matters, we would urge that the facts be ascertained, and a proper understanding of the issues at hand be undertaken. The temptation of sensationalist social media hashtags and comments, especially when resorted to by celebrities and others, is neither accurate nor responsible.”
There is nationwide anger against this Rihanna tweet 👇
There is also all round condemnation of another tweet by Meena Harris, niece of Kamala Harris, the US Vice President. She has tweeted “the most populous democracy is under assault. This is related. We ALL should be outraged by India’s internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters.” This tweet is absolutely diabolic since she chose to ignore and turn a blind eye to the Republic Day violence by farmers.
