Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri said someday the funding behind the anti-CAA protest and the farmers’ protest will also be revealed, which will clarify why Bollywood stars were involved. Gujarat Special Investigation Team has claimed that later Congress leader Ahmed Patel paid activist Teesta Setalvad 30 lakh to destabilize the Gujarat government following the 2002 riots.
Vivek Agnihotri said, “I’m hoping that soon we’ll learn who sponsored Shaheen Bagh and Farmer’s rallies against the CAA. Why were Bollywood actors involved in it? “
India saw two significant demonstrations between 2019 and 2021, one against Citizenship Amendment Act and the other by farmers against three agriculture legislation. Following which administration scaled back the agriculture laws.
According to filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, funding for both farmers’ and anti-CAA protests will one day be made public, which would explain why Bollywood stars participated in both.
Earlier Gujarat Special Investigation Team stated that former Congress politician Ahmed Patel bribed activist Teesta Setalvad 30 lakh to topple the Gujarat government in the wake of the riots in 2002.
