Farmers since past few months in the biting cold winters of north india are sitting on borders and fighting for their rights, as to the farmer’s law is wrong and incorrect. To this, Hema Malini, a former Bollywood actress and BJP’s Mathura MP has said that farmers themselves don’t know what they want.
The actress and BJP MP also said that its good that Supreme Court has stayed these laws as even after so many talks, the farmers are not willing to come to a consensus and this might hopefully clam the situation.

The statement didn’t go down well with the people of India, and many took to social media handles to show their anger and feelings. Some of the tweets are-
