Hudhud times : “I will resign from ministership if a single proof surfaces of my son being on the spot where the incident happened in Lakhimpur Kheri,” Ajay Misra told.
Eight people, including four farmers, were killed on Sunday as violence erupted during a farmers’ protest in Lakhimpur Kheri. Farmers’ outfits have claimed that a car ferrying Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Misra’s son Ashish ran over a group of protesters.
The protests broke out ahead of UP Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya’s visit to Tikunia, which is Ajay Misra’s ancestral village.
Ajay Misra and his son Ashish, however, claimed that protesters attacked the convoy and killed a driver and three others, including two BJP workers. An FIR has been registered against Ashish Misra in connection with the violence.
On Monday, Ajay Misra denied allegations that his son Ashish was driving the vehicle which allegedly ran over protesting farmers.
“Our volunteers had gone to welcome our chief guest and I was with them. The same time, some anti-social elements attacked the convoy, during which the driver of the car was hurt and he lost balance, resulting in the car turning turtle,” Ajay Misra. https://www.hudhudtimes.com/
