“They can go to any extent to suppress the farmers of the whole country, the example of this is the incident in Lakhimpur. Our demand is that the Minister of State for Home should be sacked first and the minister who went with him should also be sacked. Those who try to crush the agitating people should be arrested. Because this is not an ordinary incident. Rather it is clearly a case of murder and action should be taken by registering an offense under that section.”
Congress national spokesperson Gaurav Vallabh said, “Yesterday we had demanded that an inquiry should be conducted into this incident under the chairmanship of the sitting judge of the Supreme Court. This incident is not a single incident. You understand its chronology. A few days ago UP BJP A cartoon comes on the handle.
“It is written about Rakesh Tikait in the cartoon that if he comes to UP, he will be stripped. A week ago, the Minister of State for Home says that get better, or else he will reform. After that the Chief Minister of Haryana says that the agitating farmers will be beheaded. Go to jail and become a leader. Does BJP prepare its leaders like this? This is General Dyer’s government, it will be considered by the people by driving away.”
