Celebrities who commented on farmers protest obviously didn’t know very much, foreign minister said.

External affairs minister S Jaishankar on Saturday reacted to the toolkit row and expressed concern over what all has come out in the open after the ‘toolkit’ was tweeted by Sweden climate activist Greta Thunberg. “I think it has revealed a lot. We have to see what else comes out,” he said to news agency ANI.

The foreign minister also said that there was a reason why the ministry needed to issue a statement in the wake of farmers’ protest getting international attention, which the ministry said was neither responsible nor accurate.

“You see there was a reason why the foreign ministry reacted to the statements which some celebrities gave out for whatever the reason on matters which obviously they didn’t know very much,” Jaishankar said.

After American pop star Rihanna tweeted a CNN article on farmers’ protest and the following suspension of the internet in areas of the National capital, the protest has garnered international support. But among all those who supported farmers, a tweet by Greta Thunberg stood apart as the teen activist shared a toolkit, containing information on how to support the protest. Greta deleted one version of the toolkit only to upload another one saying the earlier version was outdated. Delhi Police registered an FIR against the creators of the toolkit and wrote to Google seeking details.
