AAP Urges Sachin Tendulkar To Heed Fan's Wish Of Tweeting In Support Of Protesting Farmers
By The Space
On Monday, AAP urged cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar to post at least one tweet in support of the farmers protesting against the three farm laws passed by Parliament. In a veiled response to the comments on the farm agitation by some foreign celebrities, Tendulkar had tweeted, "India’s sovereignty cannot be compromised. External forces can be spectators but not participants. Indians know India and should decide for India. Let's remain united as a nation". However, the Congress' Maharashtra state unit alleged that such tweets were written under pressure from the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre following which a probe has been ordered.
Addressing an open letter to the former swashbuckling opener, AAP leader Preeti Sharma Menon mentioned that Ranjeet Bagel, the son of a farmer had travelled from Pandharpur to Bandra with an appeal. She posted a picture of the aforesaid Tendulkar fan who is holding a placard saying, "Sachin, when will you tweet for my farmer father?". Assuring that countless Indians will shower Tendulkar with love and blessings in exchange of a single tweet supporting farmers, she requested him to heed Bagel's prayer.
