Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut once again made a controversial Twitter post. This time, her post targeted Indian cricketers over the farmers’ protest.
Ms. Kangana Ranaut responded to a tweet of Rohit Sharma, the Vice Captain of the Indian Cricket Team.
Rohit Sharma shared his views over the ongoing farmers protest. He said, “India has always been stronger when we all stand together and finding a solution is the need of the hour. Our farmers play an important role in our nation’s well being and I am sure everyone will play their roles to find a solution TOGETHER. #IndiaTogether.”
Ms. Ranaut responded to his tweet and referred to Indian cricketers as ‘Dhobi ka kutta.’
In her tweet, Ms. Kangana said, “Why all these cricketers sounding like dhobi ka kutta na ghar ka na ghat ka? Why would farmers be against laws which are revolutionary for their well-being. These are terrorists who are causing ruckus. Say that na…itna daarr lagta hai?”
However, Twitter immediately took down the tweet claiming it to be the violation of Twitter guidelines.
In India Twitteratis divided themselves in two parts, while half of them are supporting the protesting farmers, the other half is showing faith in the Central Government over the three controversial farm laws.
The Twitter fight over the issue broke out after international celebrities like Rihanna, Mia Khalifa, Climate Change Activist Greta Thunberg, U.S. Representative from Californis Jim Costa and others extended their solidarity with the farmers of India.
Responding to their concerns, Indian celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Kailash Kher, Ekta Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Suniel Shetty and Kailash Kher urged Indian citizens not to fall for half truth and focus on efforts of Central Government, which is trying to resolve the issue with tha farmers.
Since then, Twitter is flooded with cooperative messages highlighting the good works and efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi led Bharatiya Janata Party in the farmers protest matter.
The messages were posted with several hashtags like #PMModi #IndiaWithModi #IndiaAgainstPropaganda and #IndiaTogether.
With this, the three months protest of Indian farmers at three Delhi borders gained attention nationally and globally

Thousands of farmers from Haryana and Punjab marched to Delhi and started a protest at three the borders, including the Tikri and Singhu borders in New Delhi.
