While India has clearly defined the farmers protest in India as an "internal matter", Pakistan has once again poked its nose. The Federal Minister for Science and Technology Government of Pakistan, Fawad Chaudhry, tried to exploit the farmers’ protest in India over the farm laws 2020.
Fawad Chaudhry took to Twitter and said that Punjabis are suffering across the world because of the situation in India.
"Punjabis all over the world are in pain on what’s happening in India, since Maharaja Ranjeet Singh death Punjabis are under siege one way or other. Punjabis paid the price of independence by their blood, Punjabis are a victim of their own follies," Pakistan Minister Fawad Chaudhry tweeted on ongoing farmers protest in India.
