In a tweet, Yadav said, "The BJP government is ignoring the farmers by adopting a heartless attitude towards the justified demands of the agitators shivering on the streets.The global response that is coming to this, has deeply hurt the democratic image of India worldwide. BJP government should stop exploiting those who feed us".

Yadav had on Thursday said the farmers' stir was also a movement to restore democratic values and that is why people are "emotionally connected" with it to save democracy.
