Actor Kangana Ranaut has once again hit the headlines with her tweet regarding the agri-marketing Bills passed at Rajya Sabha on Monday.
In Punjab, farmers have been protesting against the passing of the Bills. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, however, tweeted that the bills will liberate the farmers from the constraints of middlemen and called it a “water watershed moment in the history of Indian agriculture.”
He added, “We are here to serve our farmers. We will do everything possible to support them and ensure a better life for their coming generations.”
Ranaut, quoting the PM’s tweet wrote, “Dear Prime Minister, someone who is asleep can be awakened or misunderstandings can be cleared, but what about those who are just acting to be asleep or naïve? These are the same terrorists who shed blood even though not a single person lost their citizenship due to the CAA (sic).”
This tweet incurred the reactions of netizens and many did not share the same viewpoint as the Queen actor. Several users questioned whether the actor referred to the agitating farmers as ‘terrorists,’ and slammed her for the comment.
Ranaut on Monday gave a “rumor” slap to the comments and claimed that “Pappu’s Champu can fight only on the basis of rumors.” She went on to state that if anyone can prove that she had called the farmers terrorists, she will apologise and even quit the microblogging site altogether.
Farm Services Bill and The Farmers’ and Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance were passed in the Rajya Sabha on Sunday amid vehement protest by Opposition parties.
Congress leaders from Dehli and workers even marched towards the Parliament on Monday to protest against the farm bills but were detained by the police.
