A Trinamool delegation is going to Lakhimpur today.
It is learned that the farmers had united in protest against the visit of Union Minister of State Ajay Mishra and Deputy Chief Minister Keshab Maurya. And there were serious allegations.

I strongly condemn the barbaric incident in Lakhimpur Kheri. The apathy of @ BJP4India towards our farmer brethren pains me deeply. A delegation of 5 @AITCofficial MPs will be visiting the families of the victims tomorrow. Our farmers will always have our unconditional support.

Protesting farmers are becoming more angry after the incident in Lakhimpur. The Kisan Morcha, a farmers’ organization, has called for a nationwide protest against the incident. Protests have been called in front of the district magistrate’s office in different districts of the country on Monday afternoon. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said protesting farmers from Punjab and Haryana have already started coming to Uttar Pradesh. The farmers’ organization also claimed that 10 people were injured in the incident. Despite promising to investigate the incident, the local administration said Section 144 may be issued in Lakhimpur Kheri area to avoid noise. As a result, it remains to be seen whether the grassroots delegation will be able to reach the spot. Incidentally, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi tried to go to Lakhimpur on the same day. He left for Lakhimpur before dawn on Monday. But he was reportedly obstructed in many places.
Priyanka also tweeted about it at midnight on Sunday. He wrote, ‘This is the country of the peasantry, not the country of the BJP. I am not committing any crime in Lakhimpur. I just want to go visit the families of the victims. Why am I being stopped anyway? ‘ It is learned that the police have taken him into custody and he has been taken to the district police office.
