New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi moved an adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday for discussion of Lakhimpur Kheri violence.
Terming it a matter of urgent importance, he said that the report by the special investigation team of Uttar Pradesh police had highlighted that the “massacre of farmers at Lakhimpur was a pre-planned conspiracy and not a negligent act.”
He sought adjournment of the day’s business of the House to discuss the matter.
“The SIT has recommended for the modification of the charges against all the accused. The Government should immediately sack the MoS Home Affairs, Ajay Kumar Mishra and ensure justice is delivered to the families of the victim,” he said.
On Tuesday, floor leaders of Opposition in both the Houses had met in the office of Rajya Sabha LOP Mallikarjun Kharge to discuss the strategy for the rest of the Winter Session of the Parliament.
