On a day when BJP spokesperson Lakhimpur Kari linked the violence to “Khalistanis”, party MP More reaction among very quiet people at this time. “
“This is very unfortunate and it is dangerous for the country too, because instead of understanding what the struggling farmers are saying, we can not start using bad language for them,” Gandhi spokesman Harish Chandra Srivastava said in response to a tweet from Khalistan on Sunday. He blamed the elements.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Gandhi said the violence erupted after an individual or a group acted in criminal negligence and could not blame the administration. He added that it would be better for political leaders to wait until the situation calms down, saying “sometimes the political situation can be exacerbated.”

The three-term MP said the attacking community was “pointing to an unequal presence in the armed forces”. They are selfless in the way they have sacrificed their lives. If we are going to speak disparagingly and contemptuously about them, it is not only unjust and cruel, but God forbid it will lead to a reaction among the most peaceful people at this time.
He warned that it could take a dangerous turn. “When you provoke someone to cheat, sooner or later people will respond that it is dangerous to our country. This is something we have to be miles away from,” Gandhi said.
In the aftermath of Sunday’s violence in Lakhimpur, Uttar Pradesh, Srivastava tweeted: “In Lakhimpur yesterday, Khalistanis killed BJP workers, today attacked a police station in Lucknow and set it on fire with the support of the Samajwadi Party. If you connect the dots the picture of the Islamic-Khalistani conspiracy and its aides will be clear.
On Sunday, eight people, including four farmers, were killed when a team of three SUVs belonging to Union Home Minister Ajay Mishra attacked a group of agricultural protesters in Lakhimpur Keri, Uttar Pradesh.
Gandhi, who had written a letter to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Monday again wrote to the Chief Minister seeking registration of a murder case against those involved in the farmers’ deaths and the CBI probe.
“From the information I have received from the primary sources, it is a crime committed by an individual or a group of people. It is not the administration that attacks the farmers.
They should be charged with murder. I do not see this as an administrative failure because it is not a case of police firing on farmers or severe action by the police. This is a group of criminal negligence, ”he said.
Gandhi, a former BJP general secretary, said political leaders could wait until the mood subsided before coming to the area. “When a situation is already very annoying or tense or fragile, sometimes politics can exacerbate a situation. So my opinion on this is that everyone should be allowed to go everywhere, take their opinions freely and participate en masse in the politics of any mass movement. That is the constitution. However, this should be done as soon as the situation calms down so that the situation cannot be covered up for political reasons, ”he said.
Earlier, in a letter to the Prime Minister, Philippine MP described the deaths as “a horrific incident to cut” and “heartbreaking”. He said it has provoked pain and anger among people across the country.
He emphasized that the “agitating agrarian brothers were our own citizens” and said that they were protesting under their democratic rights and should be treated with restraint and peace. “However, we must treat our farmers sensitively and only within a Gandhian and democratic way within the bounds of the law,” he said.
He also demanded Rs 1 crore compensation for the families of those killed in Sunday’s violence.
