Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh appealed to the people of India to stand united to face the ongoing farmers-Centre crisis, noting that there was no issue that couldn't be resolved. The southpaw's tweet comes in the backdrop of an almighty row over pop sensation Rihanna and climate activist Greta Thunberg commenting on the ongoing farmers' protest on the outskirts of the national capital Delhi. Taking to Twitter, Yuvraj Singh hailed the farmer community as the lifeblood of the nation and expressed confidence in reaching a peaceful resolution to break the deadlock between the protesting farmers and the Centre.
As proud citizens of our beloved India, let’s stand united in this hour of crisis. There is no problem that cannot be resolved. Our farmer community is the lifeblood of this nation and I am confident that a peaceful resolution will be reached soon ð®ð³ #IndiaTogether— Yuvraj Singh (@YUVSTRONG12) February 4, 2021
Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Sandeep Sharma claimed that no one should care about each other as it is their internal matter - referring to the MEA's response to Rihanna and Greta Thunberg categorically stating that the issue of the farmers was India's internal matter. Listing out instances in various countries that have invited criticism and reactions from other nations, Sandeep Sharma argued that by the logic of MEA there should be no reactions to those instances. Some of the instances that were named by the pacer which he claimed that outsiders shouldn't criticise as they were internal affairs of the respective countries include the persecution of Jews in Germany, the persecution of minorities in Pakistan, the massacre of Sikhs in 1984, the racial discrimination against the Blacks in USA, the persecution of Uighur Muslims in China, apartheid in South Africa and the persecution of Rohingyas in Myanmar. He didn't account for the fact that nobody is ostensibly against the farmers in this case, and that the agitation is nothing in comparison to the mentions in the list.
By this logic no one should care about each other because every situation is someone's internal affair. pic.twitter.com/DUhhvVVoxO— Sandeep sharma (@sandeep25a) February 4, 2021
