Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Tuesday staged a protest at the Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan premises here against the alleged killing of innocent farmers by the son of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs at Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh on Sunday last.
The APCC condemned the BJP Governments at the Centre and in Uttar Pradesh for the “brutal” murder of farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri, where farmers had assembled to protest against the \\”anti-farmer\\” laws passed by the Central Government.
“Such brutality on our Annadatas (food givers) in broad daylight by the Yogi (Adityanath)-led BJP Govt in UP is highly condemnable,” the APCC said.APCC president and former CM Nabam Tuki led the protest during which the effigies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were burnt to lodge the grand old party’s strong protest against the incident.
APCC also demanded that Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra be sacked from the Modi government \\”for inciting violence and his son along with fellow goons should be booked and arrested immediately without any political interference\\”.\\”By imposing the black farm laws, Central Government took away the basic rights of our Annadatas. The farmers have been protesting peacefully across the country for the past one year to repeal the three farm laws, but the government is provoking and killing innocent farmers,\\” APCC working president Bosiram Siram alleged.
Slamming the Yogi Adityanath government for detaining the Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra by the UP Police, the former education minister said In many states, the BJP governments have arrested senior Congress leaders who were on the streets to protest this brutal massacre and police Raj.
