As months' long protest by farmers in India's capital New Delhi continues with clashes, renowned international figures such as environmental activist Greta Thunberg and activist Meena Harris have joined entertainer Rihanna in discussing the protests.

Late on Tuesday, Rihanna put out her concern regarding the farmers' protest on Twitter saying "why aren't we talking about this?" which has since then garnered huge traction in form of support as well as criticism.

Soon enough, Greta Thunberg showed her solidarity with the movement too, with Meena Harris voicing out her concerns on internet shutdowns and violene against the protesting farmers.

Harris had tweeted, "It's no coincidence that the world's oldest democracy was attacked not even a month ago, and as we speak, the most populous democracy is under assault. This is related. We ALL should be outraged by India's internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters."

Following this, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs issued a statement on Wednesday reasoning that the government has passed reformist legislation relating to the agricultural sector which gives expanded market access and provided greater flexibility to farmers.

However, the Indian farmers are still dissatisfied at agricultural reforms whereas the latest Indian budget largely ignored their concerns. They believe that the annual budget failed to address their concerns, with no mention of raising incomes or generating jobs, and vowed to press on with their protests.
