Top leadership’s silence on Lakhimpur Kheri violence!

New Delhi: In a recent interview, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he missed the critics and lamented that the number of critics is very few and most people just make allegations and play the game of perception.

the very next day, Lakhimpur Kheri violence Happened. The son of a Union minister has been accused of crushing the unarmed farmers who were protesting with his SUV. Eight people, including four farmers, died. Some were reportedly killed by the protesters.

A heart-wrenching video of the incident surfaced which shook the conscience of the entire nation. The opposition also compared it to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. It didn’t matter whether the comparison was valid or not, but it did leave an impression on people’s minds. It has been six days since the incident and people are yet to hear from the Prime Minister.

The opposition took to the streets and attempted to meet the families of the victims, only to be ridiculed by UP CM Yogi, along with the largest opposition party Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi along with two incumbent chief ministers, Bhupesh Baghel and Charanjit Singh Channi. Adityanath.

It was bad enough how the incident happened, what made it worse was the state’s high-level reaction. The state police deployed all its resources to ban political leaders in the name of controlling law and order.

However, it happened in the meantime that the main accused Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra Teni was roaming freely. UP Police said that they are very busy in dealing with the opposition leaders. Yes, the son of the Home Minister of India, who is facing the charge of murder, has not been arrested yet.

That’s not all. The minister in charge of internal security in the country has so far refused to step down. How is this not unfair?

A section of the media has expressed serious concern over the issue. He insisted that to make the investigation credible, MoS Ajay Mishra should step down. The popular belief is that the top BJP leadership should come forward to resolve the issue.

The Supreme Court seemed a little more impatient, as it reprimanded the UP government and expressed that it “Not satisfied with the steps taken so far by the state government.”

While CM Yogi Adityanath has vowed to punish the culprits, terming the incident as tragic and tragic, the fact remains that the man facing charges under IPC 302 including criminal conspiracy and rioting among many others has Even after a few days of the incident, he kept evading arrest. tells a different story.

Are the opposition attacks, media appeals and comments made by the apex court on the matter not deserving of valid criticism? Is such a massive incident involving a member of the Union Cabinet not worthy of the Prime Minister’s comment?
