Protest by Congress leaders over the alleged "use of abusive words" to the media and action on the Lakhimpur Kheri case by Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni continued on Thursday. On Thursday, in both the Houses of Parliament (Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha), opposition MPs including Congress created a ruckus, due to which the proceedings of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been adjourned till 2 pm.
Talking to the media, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and Congress Mallikarjun Kharge said that Ajay Mishra could have kept quiet if he did not have to answer, but intimidation of a minister does not suit anyone. He said that he himself should have resigned after the SIT report came. Our demonstration for that and raising the matter in the House should not have happened.
Along with this, Congress MP Deepender Singh Hooda gave Adjournment Motion Notice in Rajya Sabha regarding Lakhimpur Kheri case and taking immediate resignation of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni. In his adjournment motion notice, he has demanded that the government should immediately take the resignation of Minister Ajay Teni.
On this matter, NCP leader and Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik also demanded the dismissal of Union Minister Ajay Mishra Teni on Thursday, saying that the journalist was intimidated, threatened, mobile was snatched, what is this conduct? On one hand you kill farmers and remain in the cabinet, questions will be asked. It is clear that the murder was done in a planned manner. The Prime Minister should sack him with immediate effect.
Apart from this, Congress is also protesting in Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, demanding the sacking of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni. Under the leadership of Uttar Pradesh Congress President Ajay Kumar Lallu, a march was taken out by the Congress from the GPO Gandhi statue to the assembly. Congress President of UP Ajay Kumar Lallu said that until Ajay Kumar Teni is not sacked, the protests will continue like this.
