The video which has gone viral on social media has received a large amount of reactions from netizens. One of the users wrote, “Enough is enough! The public's frustration is palpable. It's time for the Andolanjeevi farmers to heed the voices of ordinary citizens like this brave elderly lady. Continuous blockades only exacerbate the plight of the people. Let's prioritise dialogue and find constructive solutions for the welfare of all,” while another wrote, “The sentiment expressed by the elderly lady reflects the frustration and inconvenience faced by many members of the public due to ongoing blockades and protests.”
On the other hand, the protest also received some support from the netizens. One user of X wrote, “Why this lady is creating a drama? Every protest disturbs the status quo so nobody should protest?” while another commented, “Give rights to farmers.”
