Recently, a senior politician and NCP leader Sharad Pawar had suggested Sachin of being cautious while sharing his views on topics other than cricket. Sachin Tendulkar is still one of the most popular figures in India and his views on a sensitive topic like the farmers’ protest were expected to have divided opinions on social media.
“Many people have reacted sharply to the stand taken by them (Indian celebrities). I would advise Sachin (Tendulkar) to exercise caution while speaking about any other field,” Pawar had said.
Furthermore, his comments led to him getting slammed by netizens, who reminded him of Sachin’s achievements and questioned if the NCP leader was attempting to issue an open threat to the former India cricketer.
