Lucknow: AAP MP and party’s Uttar Pradesh in-charge Sanjay Singh on Thursday termed the tough stand taken by the Supreme Court on the Lakhimpur Kheri violence as “shameful” for the BJP government in the state. 

“Farmers have been mowed to death by the vehicle of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra’s son. The families of the victims have raised questions as to why the Union minister has not been asked to resign and why his son has not been arrested. Now, the Supreme Court has also asked why arrests have not been made in the Lakhimpur Kheri case so far. This is a shameful situation for the Yogi Adityanath government,” he told reporters.

When the entire country was mourning the death of farmers in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were celebrating the “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” in Lucknow and they did not even go to meet the families of the deceased farmers, Singh said.

He said the victims’ families are dissatisfied as no action has been taken against the accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident so far, but the Uttar Pradesh government is claiming that they are satisfied. “By telling such a lie, the government is patting its own back,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said.

Asked about Mishra”s claim that his son was not involved in the incident, he said the Union minister had openly threatened the farmers just a few days ago.
