Former Indian cricketer Venkatesh Prasad also mocked Justin Trudeau for abandoning Ottawa. He tweeted, “welcome to Karma café. There are no menus here. You get served what you deserve. How much ever powerful you are you will get dished #JustinTrudeau.
Justin Trudeau had openly supported the farmers’ protest in India earlier and this had not gone down too well with many in India. The Modi government had expressed it displeasure as well.
Truckers are now protesting against the COVID restrictions and vaccine mandates in Ottawa, the Canadian capital. Thousands of truckers are out on streets against the Canadian government’s diktat. Protests peaked on Sunday forcing the PM Trudeau to move to a secret location taking his family along.
There were also many in India who took a jibe at people tweeting karma and Modi government. One of them is a Member Parliament, Priyanka Chaturvedi of Shiv Sena. She tweeted, “everyone from Gol to their friends in media are tweeting about karma for past 2-3 days wrt the situation in Canada, Ho Gaya Bhai ab bas karo. If so important to have the message heard get @MEAIndia to issue a statement!
Indian-origin truckers seem sharply divided over the trucker protests in Canada. Truckers of Indian origin have chosen to either join this demonstration, which has largely been peaceful, or they have chosen to stay out of it believing the protest to have been hijacked by right-wing interests.
The country’s truckers have driven their trucks–loosely named the Freedom Convoy–into the capital city Ottawa, blocking roads forcing the Canadian PM to flee the capital along with his family. Coming days are hard for the Trudeau government fighting COVID as well as protesters.
