Twitter on Wednesday witnessed a war of words over the protest as several prominent international celebrities and activists expressed their views on the issue. The external affairs ministry slammed the remarks made by them and issued a statement where it said that facts had to be ascertained before speaking on such a matter. The ministry further clarified that no foreign government had offered support to the protest against the farm laws- which were passed by Parliament in September. Several central government ministers and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders echoed the MEA’s response to the tweets of these international figures over the agitation.

Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that a proper understanding of the issues had to be undertaken before rushing to comment on such matters. Meanwhile,BJP’s national president JP Nadda that the protest was an internal issue and it will be resolved. “We stand together.
