Rihanna made a tweet on her official Twitter handle. She tweeted, “why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest” The singer questioned why everyone worldwide is not talking about the Farmer’s protest happening in India. The singer’s reaction came after a report published by a news agency. CNN reported the recent violence that took place at Red Fort on Republic Day, January 26. The report was regarding the Internet that was cut around New Delhi after the protesting farmer’s clashed with the police officials. Reportedly, during the incident, dozens of officials were injured and one protestor died when a tractor overturned near Delhi police headquarters.
