New Delhi: Lakhimpur Violence: After the suspension of the peasant movement, the central government seems to be in trouble over the Lakhimpur Kheri tragedy. The opposition has taken a hard line and attacked the government in Parliament after the SIT recommended that Ashish Mishra, son of Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra, be tried for murder.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi has moved a notice of adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha regarding Lakhimpur violence and Ajay Mishra. On the other hand, on the very first day of the UP Assembly session in Lucknow, the Samajwadi Party and Congress MLAs made a big fuss over this issue. Meanwhile, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary said, “We want the central government to sack Ajay Kumar Mishra. Rahul Gandhi will try to present his position on this issue in the House today. Rahul Gandhi has submitted a notice of adjournment motion in Parliament on Lakhimpur violence.
Earlier on Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi had also targeted the government over the issue. Rahul Gandhi had said that he wanted to raise the issue of Lakhimpur in Parliament but the government was not giving him a chance to speak on it. He said that the SIT report on Lakhimpur had revealed that the incident was carried out under a planned conspiracy. Rahul Gandhi said that those who drove their jeeps over the farmers, what was the force behind them? Who gave the discount? What power kept them out of jail for so long? Rahul Gandhi said that not dismissing his minister was an injustice.
It may be recalled that before filing charge sheets against all the 14 accused, including Ashish Mishra, accused of Lakhimpur violence, the investigating officer has appealed to the court to remove the three sections against the accused, including the section on involuntary manslaughter. Strict provisions should be imposed. Lakhimpur District CJM Court has accepted it and ordered to change the provisions.
