If we comprehend his comment, the obvious meaning of that is “How can a farmer speak fluent English?”
Many Twitter users have called out Vivek Agnihotri for dishonouring farmers speaking English.
One User wrote, “Only an agnihotri can speak english. Anyone else speaking english is to be discounted.”
Another user wrote, “Just cause your education failed you..you give out a nervous laughter for an educated farmer..in ur limited circle ppl might call them poor landless..start roaming in better circles who will tell u many freedom fighters were highly educated.”
