The farmers' protest against farm laws has intensified ever since international celebrities including Rihanna and Greta Thunberg reacted to the agitation. After Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli tweeted with the hashtag India Together, Yuvraj Singh also joined the trend.
Yuvraj Singh also tweeted using the 'India Together' hashtag after which he has been criticised by the Indian fans. Cricketers and other celebrities had kept quiet for over 70 days ever since the protest began at the Delhi border.
Despite 11 rounds of talks between the government and farmers, no resolution has been found.
Yuvraj Singh tweeted: "As proud citizens of our beloved India, let’s stand united in this hour of crisis. There is no problem that cannot be resolved. Our farmer community is the lifeblood of this nation and I am confident that a peaceful resolution will be reached soon."
Responding to his tweet: Yuvraj Singh said, "Tu ta Sada Mann see jind Jann see tu b sanu Bollywood wangu dang gia jatta @YUVSTRONG12 tere kolo eh as ni see heartbroken!"
The government of India decided to cut internet services at the protest site, sparking a row over 'human rights'. Soon after international media started covering the issue, several celebrities from across the globe expressed their anger over the government's actions.
Likewise, the Haryana government stated that "Suspension of mobile internet services (2G/3G/4G/CDMA/GPRS), bulk SMS services and all dongle services provided on mobile networks except voice calls in Kaithal, Panipat, Jind, Rohtak, Charkhi Dadri, Sonipat, and Jhajjar districts extended till 5 pm tomorrow."
