Six people have been reported dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur-Kheri district on Sunday in violence on Tikonia-Banbirpur road ahead of Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya’s visit. The farmer was protesting against the anti-agriculture laws during Keshav Prasad Maurya’s visit. Then suddenly, violence erupted in the area after two SUVs allegedly collided. Both SUVs are being told of Union Minister Ajay Mishra’s convoy. Enraged by the accident, the farmers created a ruckus on the road and thrashed the driver of the SUV car.
Social worker Yogendra Yadav announced the movement
According to media reports, angry people set the SUV on fire and thrashed the people sitting in the vehicles. Meanwhile, social activist Yogendra Yadav announced that farmers will agitate outside district magistrate offices across the country on Monday over the alleged incident of two SUVs hitting protesters in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh.

Opposition targeted the current government
The situation in Lakhimpur Kheri is very tense. United Kisan Morcha and Bharatiya Kisan Union have given a call to reach Lakhimpur. Thousands of farmers have already reached here. At the same time, the opposition is trying its best to roast the matter. Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav and Priyanka Gandhi have targeted the Yogi government fiercely. It is a matter of great sadness that such an incident is a stigma for our country. Has our human rights not been violated, if this is happening to those who feed our stomachs, then what will happen to others. On the other hand, Priyanka Gandhi will go to Lakhimpur tomorrow and meet the farmers’ families.
