A shocker report has quoted the Delhi Police station saying that the environmental activist is “brewing an overseas conspiracy and an attempt to promote enmity between groups”.
Despite the obvious retort from the Indian media, Greta stood her ground.

Adding fuel to the fire, Greta went a few steps further and re-posted a “toolkit” for people on how to show support for the farmers.

People resorted to Twitter of course, and the reaction is extraordinary, to say the least.
First things first: we must conform to realism when uncertainty looms.

The Khalistan movement in India seeks to split off a portion to create a a place that’s for the Sikhs, by the Sikhs, and off the Sikhs. In pure English, the label translates to “land of the pure”. The following remark by a rumored protestor is also pure.

Someone took the liberty of setting up an online poll to predict the winner of this “geo-strategic rope-pulling”. Who’d win?
Dilli police vs Underage climate activist Greta. Who will win?

A few sensible ones welcomed Greta’s purview and lauded her support for the Indian farmers.
First of all I would like to say sorry behalf of all Indians. Right now our country is ruled by a fascist regime. Thanks for extending support for our farmers. Be bold. More power to you. And welcome to world’s largest democratic country !
