On Saturday, February 6, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar urged Sachin Tendulkar “to exercise caution while speaking about any other field”. Tendulkar had earlier made comments on the celebrity-fuelled pushback against pop star Rihanna and her tweet on the farmer’s agitation in India.

Moreover, this came a few days after Tendulkar joined a long list of Indian actors, sportspersons and politicians tweeting on unity and farmers - a list triggered by Rihanna's tweet and the wave of international headlines and support it generated.

Furthermore, Sharad Pawar was quoted by news agencies stating, "Many people have reacted sharply to the stand by them (Indian celebrities). I would advise Sachin to exercise caution while speaking about any other field," further criticising the centre for saying the protesters were "Khalistanis or terrorists".

On the other hand, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Vijay Shankar Tiwari on Sunday mocked Pawar for his 'advice' to former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar against commenting on farmers protest.

According to reports, Tiwari, further hitting out at the NCP leader's remark said that foreign celebrities such as Rihanna commenting on India's internal affairs is welcomed by Pawar, but when Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar speaks in favour of the bills, he is advised to exercise caution.

Currently in India, the farmers have been protesting alongside the Delhi borders against the new farm laws. They are protesting against the three laws, namely, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020 and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020, that took effect from September 27 after President Ram Nath Kovind's assent.
