In the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case in Uttar Pradesh, the United Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Monday wrote to President Ram Nath Kovind asking him to sack Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra from the Union Cabinet and a Special Investigation Team (SIT) under the supervision of the Supreme Court. SIT) has been demanded.
In fact, eight people, including four farmers, were killed in violence that broke out in Tikonia area of Lakhimpur Kheri district on Sunday during the farmers’ protest over the visit of UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya.
The United Kisan Morcha (SKM) has said in the letter that Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra should be sacked from his post and a case should be registered against him for inciting violence and spreading communal hatred. Union Minister’s son Ashish Mishra “Monu” and his fellow goons should be booked under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and arrested immediately.
The Kisan Morcha further said that the whole country is outraged by the incident of brutal killing of farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday in broad daylight. Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni’s son and his goons carried out this deadly attack shamelessly which shows the deep conspiracy of Uttar Pradesh and Central Government.
The Morcha further said that Ajay Mishra had already made a reference to the attack by making inflammatory and derogatory speeches against the farmers. The SKM alleged, “It is no coincidence that on the same day, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar is publicly inciting his party workers to lift sticks and indulge in violence against farmers.
It is clear from these incidents that these persons holding constitutional positions are using their positions for planned violence against the “Annadatas” who are leading peaceful agitations. It is a crime against the constitution and the country, according to the laws of the country.
Along with this, the leading forum of farmer organizations demanded a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the incident under the supervision of the Supreme Court. It also demanded removal of Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar for his alleged remarks against farmers.
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had reportedly spoken of “tit for tat” during a meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Kisan Morcha in Chandigarh on Sunday. He asked the people present there to form groups of 500 to 1000 people and be ready to go to jail.
