A while ago, there was a burst on social media when Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi went on to announce that they have decided to repeal three controversial farm laws. And as soon as that happened, actor Kangana Ranaut went on to express her reaction to the same.
Ranaut has called the move, 'sad, shameful, absolutely unfair'.
The actor took to her Instagram stories to express her disappointment over the PM's decision to scrap the laws, and said that the country was no better than a "jihadi nation."
"Sad, shameful, absolutely unfair. If people on the streets have started to make laws and not the chosen government in the Parliament, then even this is a jihadi nation. Congratulations to all who wanted it like this," she wrote in a post.
However, that was not all, she went on to state that there was a dictatorship was the 'only resolution'. Commemorating the 104th birth anniversary of former Indian PM Indira Gandhi, she wrote, "When the conscience of the nation is in deep sleep, lath (the cane) is the only solution and dictatorship is the only resolution… Happy birthday Madam Prime Minister."
In a surprise announcement, PM Modi announced on Friday that his government will withdraw the controversial farm laws that prompted yearlong protests from thousands of farmers.
The decision is a major climbdown by the Modi-lead BJP government ahead of key elections in states like Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
“Today, I have come to tell you, the whole country, that we have decided to withdraw all three agricultural laws. In the Parliament session starting later this month, we will complete the constitutional process to repeal these three agricultural laws,” the PM said in a televised speech.
On the other hand, many others have come forward to express their happiness and poured in congratulatory messages on social media.
