In Lakhimpur Kheri, the issue of farmers being crushed by a car of BJP leaders on Sunday and then killing 4 others in violence is heating up the politics of UP. Not only this, this case has provided political life in a way to the Congress which is still looking weak. Priyanka Gandhi was made in-charge of western UP from 2017 itself. Since then she was active in this area, but this is the first time that she is in strong discussion. Not only this, there has also been a discussion at the national level to arrest, stop Priyanka Gandhi from going to Lakhimpur. From Shiv Sena, NCP in Maharashtra to Mehbooba Mufti in Kashmir, they have supported him.

Apart from this, till now, she has also been able to unite the Congress which is facing internal strife in many states including Punjab, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. From the newly appointed CM of Punjab Channi to the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Baghel has been seen active and is reaching Lakhimpur Kheri with Rahul Gandhi. Priyanka’s activism has also given strength to Rahul Gandhi, who looked confident when he came to Delhi to hold a press conference on Wednesday. Not only this, he reached Lucknow with two chief ministers and sat on a dharna when he did not get permission to leave his car. In the end, permission was also given to get out of his own car.

According to political experts, one reason for the Congress being active in Lakhimpur Kheri is the possibility of getting benefits in two states. In fact, there is a sizeable Sikh population in many districts of the Terai region including Lakhimpur Kheri, Pilibhit, Bahraich and Hardoi. The farmers who were crushed to death by the car of BJP leaders also belong to the Sikh community. In such a situation, by being active in Lakhimpur, the Congress wants to give a message that it is ready for the interests of the Sikh community. This is the reason why he has also taken his Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi along. Even the Punjab government has announced a compensation of Rs 50 lakh for the next of kin of the farmers killed. The Congress government of Chhattisgarh has also announced to give the same amount.

Know how Akhilesh Yadav missed and what will be the effect on BJP

On one hand, Priyanka has suddenly come into the limelight in the politics of UP with the Lakhimpur case, while the main opposition party called SP and its leader Akhilesh Yadav have failed to create an atmosphere. This can also send a message that Akhilesh Yadav is not far ahead in coming out on the road for the interests of the common people. Now from the point of view of BJP, it is beneficial for it in UP. The reason for this is that the Congress does not have a strong organization and even after being in the discussion, it will not be able to convert the atmosphere into enough votes to win. At the same time, whatever vote she gets, it will be the loss of SP itself.
