Indian High Commission ‘condemned’ discussion
Last week, the Indian High Commission in London condemned the discussion between some British MPs over the issue of the right to protest peacefully and the freedom of the press amid the ongoing farmers’ agitation against three laws in India. The High Commission on Monday evening condemned the discussion that took place in Britain’s Parliament complex and said that false claims have been made in this ‘one-sided discussion’.
The Indian Mission referred to the reports of foreign media, including the British media, as a witness to the performance of farmers running in India and said that ‘there is no question on the lack of freedom of the press in India’. The High Commission had said in a statement that it is very unfortunate that false claims were made without any sound basis instead of a balanced debate.
The statement said that it has raised questions on one of the world’s largest democracies and its institutions. This discussion was done on an ‘e-petition’ with signatures of more than one lakh people. The Indian High Commission had expressed its displeasure over this discussion.
