Farmers are an integral part of our country and I’m sure an amicable solution will be found between all parties to bring about peace and move forward together. #IndiaTogether.”

Our farmers play an important role in our nation’s well being and I am sure everyone will play their roles to find a solution TOGETHER. #IndiaTogether”

Ajinkya Rahane, who led India to a memorable 2-1 Test series win over Australia recently, echoed similar sentiments. “There’s no issue that cannot be resolved if we stand together as one. Let’s remain united and work towards resolving our internal issues #IndiaTogether,” he wrote.

Let’s stand together and move forward together towards a better and brighter future. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda,” he wrote.

Onwards and upwards. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda,” the former India head coach wrote.
