Actress Ragini Dwivedi, who was seen in the Tamil film Nimirnthu Nil, has urged people to express solidarity with the farmers of Karnataka who are staging agitations to protest the release of water from the Cauvery to Tamil Nadu.
In a video clip, that has now been shared several times on social media networks, Ragini is seen saying in Kannada, “Cauvery is ours. We will not let it go. Why should we give them water when we don’t have any to drink? Come out for the struggle. Stand by the farmers. I’m standing by them, you too come.”
The actress also posted the thirteen second video clip on her Twitter page.
