On Wednesday, the Question Hour could not go on smoothly in the Lok Sabha due to the uproar by the opposition parties. The opposition demanded the removal of Union Minister of State Ajay Mishra. Mishra’s son is accused of killing farmers. On Wednesday, there was a fierce ruckus in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case of Uttar Pradesh in both the houses of Parliament. Actually, Congress and other opposition parties demanded the dismissal of Union Minister of State Ajay Mishra over the report of the Special Investigation Team (SIT). The opposition took an aggressive stand in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.


When the proceedings of the House began on Wednesday, the opposition MPs started shouting slogans. They raised slogans of “Do justice”, “take minister’s resignation” and “Prime Minister answer”. Former Congress President and MP Rahul Gandhi had given an adjournment motion in Parliament regarding the SIT report. Congress demands that Minister Ajay Mishra should leave the post immediately so that a fair investigation can be done in the violence case and the farmers can get justice. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla tried to run the question hour amidst the uproar and continuous sloganeering by the opposition parties, but the ruckus of the opposition parties continued.

The hearings of the House were disrupted due to the uproar and sloganeering. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi alleged that he was not being allowed to speak in the Lok Sabha on the issue of the Lakhimpur Kheri incident in the light of new revelations made by the SIT. The Congress MP wrote in his notice, “The SIT report of the UP Police has highlighted that the massacre of farmers in Lakhimpur was a pre-planned conspiracy and not some negligence. Mishra should be sacked immediately and justice should be ensured to the families of the victims.” Meanwhile, countering Rahul’s charge of not allowing him to speak in the Lok Sabha, Union Minister and Leader of the House in Rajya Sabha Piyush Goyal said that the Lakhimpur case should be investigated by the Supreme Court. On instructions and under the supervision of the Supreme Court, 13 people, including Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish Mishra, are accused of thrashing the protesting farmers with a jeep in Lakhimpur on October 3. In the incident and the violence that followed, four farmers Including eight people had died.

The SIT probing the violence has found in its investigation that the farmers were crushed by a vehicle as part of a well-planned conspiracy, after which all the accused have been booked for murder instead of culpable homicide. Now all the 13 accused including Ashish will be tried for conspiracy to murder and under the sections of the Arms Act. On the application of the SIT, the CMJ court has approved to increase the new sections on Tuesday. In this case, all the 13 accused including Ashish are in jail.
