With the SIT terming the Lakhimpur violence "a pre-planned conspiracy", Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) president Ajay Kumar Lallu on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to dismiss Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra 'Teni' if he is sensitive towards farmers.

In a statement, he said that if the prime minister is sensitive towards farmers and if his faith in law, the Constitution and the democracy of the country remains, then taking cognisance of the Special Investigation Team's report, he should dismiss Mishra from his post and ensure his arrest.

and kill farmers has now become clear, Lallu claimed.

It has been proved through the probe report presented in court by the chief investigator that it was not a case of negligence and negligent driving causing death but rather a well-planned mob lynching, murder and attempt to murder, he said.

Therefore, the Union minister should immediately resign or the prime minister should sack him from the post, he said.

The UPCC president alleged that the prime minister's mindset has been anti-farmer because of which atrocities and attacks have continued against them. "No action has been taken at the PM's level and his silence seems like a tacit acceptance of anti-farmer mischiefs, conspiracies and derogatory remarks," he said.
