Sachin's word isn't outcome determinative and he doesn't have to say a single word until he knows what's happened. All this misdirected anger is because people assume that Sachin has the obligation to fight their battles. He doesn't. BTW your Messiah, Dravid, does the same.
Ordinarily fucking endless paeans will be written on Dravid's greatness but when suddenly it is time to take a stand, his unwillingness to do so is immediately forgiven and forgotten and suddenly we're reminded he isn't the legend that Sachin is. Make up your fickle minds.
Cricketers don't speak up because they are castigated when they do. They speak up in support of their nation against foreign interference seeking to ignite a bogus protest on an issue that there was national consensus on until the unfettered right to baseless protest arrived.

Yesterday while addressing the House, PM said that the Opposition is talking about the agitation but not about the content and intent of Farm Laws. I thought I should make him happy today and speak on the content and intent of the laws: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha Image
The content of the first law is that one can have unlimited purchase of foodgrains, fruits & vegetables anywhere in the country. If the purchase is unlimited anywhere in the country, then who would go to Mandis? The content of the first law is to finish the mandis: Rahul Gandhi
The content of the second law is that big businessmen can store as much food grains, fruits & vegetables as they want. They can hoard as much as they want. Content of the second law is to end the Essential Commodities Act. It is, to start unlimited hoarding in India: Rahul Gandhi

Let there be a new dawn for #PopulationControlLaw in India to facilitate strengthening our pillars which keep the nation secure and safe from enemies and hunger.
Let us all support all such measures and moves the Government deems it fit to secure the lives of our #Jawans and #Kisans. #PopulationControlLaw . It is pertinent to see the land for farming for farmers does not shrink due to #PopulationExplosion. :
I am sure all sane minds will delve deep & urge d Government of d day to take necessary initiatives for a #PopulationControlLaw which will give incentives to small families & give no government subsidies, tuition fees, LTC, medical facilities, etc to units with more than 2 kids.

THREAD: Zill-e-Ilahi ka daur kahatam ho chuka hai, Modi ki aankhon mein aankhein daal kar unki ghaltiyon ko bayaan kiya jayega

Spoke in #LokSabha in response to President's Address

@PMOIndia is hesitant & afraid of even uttering CHINA's name? [1/n]
After 45 years China killed 20 of our soldiers & govt has insulted their supreme sacrifice. India cannot even patrol at the place where they were killed. China has occupied our territory in Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh & Sikkim and @PMOIndia is afraid of even raising the issue 2/n
#मैं_आंदोलनजीवी_हूँ & I'm proud of it. Instead of constructing defensive border infrastructure in Arunachal, Sikkim & Ladakh, the govt has built it in #Singhu, #Ghazipur & #Tikri. Treatment ideally meant for Chinese soldiers is being meted out on protesting Indian farmers 3/n

as an #AndolanJeevi #IStandWithFarmers on #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP Guarantee
@Gen_VKSingh Now, it is clear that the Govt is adamant on #suspended #farmlaws and is misusing even #parliament to tell Lies on #MSP
refusing MSP Guarantee act to prevent below MSP purchase by anyone in India.
We Step back and understand the true ramifications of this situation for #Annadata
@Gen_VKSingh When do #Sellibrities become active to tweet on agriculture subject? When they get hints or advice, being a celebrity is a sensitive expectation from the powers and they are close to the heart of every Indian. #AndolanJeevi #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP

If you aren't listening to @PMOIndia @narendramodi right now, please do listen. He is laying out a compelling case for the Farm loans. Irrfutable. Just listen. Brilliant!
Started off by quoting former PM Charan Singhji that in 1970 nearly 51% of farmers had < 1 hectare of land. Now that has increased to 68%. upto 2 hectares, that's 84% of all Indian farmers. These farmers don't even have bank accounts. Can't take loans. So loan writeoffs - no use
Spoke about Fasal Bima Yojana. Then Gram Sadak Yojana. All these are in aid of the "small farmer". PM keeps repeating that. #FarmLaws

Have been watching the evolution of @DilipGhoshBJP with admiration. Over the last four years he has really come of age and emerged as a leader to reckon with in #WestBengal vindicating his selection as @BJP4Bengal President. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
2/n PM #NarendraModi takes stage - referring to the #UttarakhandAvalanche drawing a link between the source of the Ganga in #Uttarakhand and its meeting with the sea near #Haldia. #ModiInBengal #WestBengalElection2021
3/n As per @DilipGhoshBJP the gathering is around 3 lakhs from the 3 districts of erstwhile undivided #Medinipur. Impressive mobilisation. Certainly @SuvenduWB's entry would have made a big difference. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021

A tweet thread.
Re: #FarmersProtest There is a great deal of ignorance and misinformation about the freedoms currently available to Indian farmers and big business houses., even before the #farmLaws were dreamt up by the #ModiGovt that is causing so much turmoil in India.
Take one example. When McDonald's (NYSE: MCD; Market Cap USD 158 Bn) opened in India, they found the Indian potato was not the right kind for their french fries. The Govt did not allow the import of American or European potatoes. What did they do?
Read on:
McDonald India went to the enterprising Indian farmer and did a deal "Grow this variety of potato, to these specs and we'll guarantee to pay this price and what's more we'll pick up your crop come what may". No #mandis no #APMC. #ContractFarming with guarantees.

A litany of lies is one of the many tools of misinformation being used to discredit the #FarmLaws & derail the negotiations by vested interest groups. 

That these laws were not debated & 'rushed through' top the list of such canards.

#IndiaTogether
#IndiaAgainstPropaganda
Here are the facts. Economic Survey 2021 mentions that 15 committees formed between 2001-2020 by different govts deliberated the farm reforms. Unlike the fake narrative the laws were clearly not 'rushed.' Many of those now vitiating the narrative have supported these for decades.
Then again, if those who are now egging on the farmers were as serious about their opposition to the laws 36 opposition members should not have been absent when RS debated these laws for more than 4 hours on 20 Sept 2020.

Hi all, if you are interested in social justice and the seemingly unending onslaught of events seems to do your head in. Here are some resources, hashtags and processes I've found helpful in keeping track of what is happening around us.
1. @Article14live has tracked #sedition cases between 2010-2010 in #India. @kunalpurohit provides an in-depth overview of the use of colonial laws to suppress dissent and active requests for rights in the country. #memoryproject
2. The #freespeechcollective has tracked arrests and detentions of #journalists in India between 2010-20. @geetaseshu's work has demonstrated that 40% of these took place in 2020. #memoryproject

SC asks Govt if they will stay the implementation of the law or the court will stay the operation of the #FarmLaws.

Court says it wants to form a committee which can then submit a report on these laws.
"Extremely disappointed with the manner the Govt is dealing with the issue..matter has only become worse," #CJI reprimands Govt.
