After the ruckus in Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday, the Congress is looking very active. Even his activism is visible in comparison to the main opposition parties Samajwadi Party and BSP in the state. Priyanka Gandhi herself has come on the road and the police has arrested her along with 11 leaders. Apart from this, Congress-ruled state Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel also reached Lucknow airport and sat on a dharna for not getting permission to exit. Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi is going to Delhi to meet Amit Shah on this issue.
Not only this, Navjot Singh Sidhu has given an ultimatum for the Congress’s march from Punjab to Lakhimpur if Union Minister Ajay Mishra’s son is not arrested till Wednesday and Priyanka Gandhi is not released. It is being said that this incident has given new life to the Congress which is looking very weak in UP and divided in Punjab. Actually, the reason for this is also the connection of the farmers killed in Lakhimpur Kheri to the Sikh community. Due to this, Congress is seen active from UP to Punjab. Those having knowledge of the affairs of Congress have to say that the party wants to take advantage of this matter in Punjab also.
This time elections in Punjab have become completely farmer centric. Apart from this, in view of the majority Sikh population of the state, she has become active in this matter. When Priyanka Gandhi, in-charge of West Uttar Pradesh took the front in this matter, then the whole party seems united behind her. It is believed that this case can give him an edge from UP to Punjab. On one hand, due to this incident being from UP, he will get benefit in this province, while due to the addition of Sikh angle, he is trying to take lead in Punjab also.
