The violence at Lakhimpur Kheri

The Indian farmers’ protests of 2020–2021 were organized in response to three agriculture legislation enacted by the BJP-led Union Government in the BJP-controlled Parliament of India in September 2020.
Teni was in Palia, Lakhimpur Kheri district, for an event in September 2021. Farmers displayed black flags as a symbol of protest at the event. “Sudhar jao, nahi toh hum aapko sudhaar denge, do minute lagega keval,” Teni had said in his address, threatening the farmers. (If you don’t change your ways, we’ll teach you a lesson in a few minutes.) In reaction to this threat, Tajinder Singh Virk, a farmer leader, staged a demonstration against Teni’s impending visit. [9] Teni and Keshav Prasad Maurya, both BJP leaders, were scheduled to attend an event in the area on October 3rd.

Ashish Mishra, Mishra’s son, allegedly ran over farmers demonstrating in Lakhimpur Kheri on 3 October 2021.
At least four farmers and a journalist were slain, according to farmer organizations, when a car in the convoy of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs and BJP MP Ajay Kumar Mishra intentionally ran them over. Following the car-ramming event, three members of the Minister’s entourage were lynched by a mob of farmers. More than ten people were hurt, and eight people perished. Ajay Kumar Mishra’s son, Ashish Mishra, rejected the charges and attempted to avoid questioning by the authorities. The Indian Supreme Court expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of action taken against the defendants in the case. On October 9, 2021, UP Police interrogated him and arrested him. Ajay Kumar Mishra’s resignation and/or arrest have been demanded by a number of opposition leaders and farmer groups as a result of the incident.

Ajay Mishra yelled obscenities at reporters and reported lunging at a journalist on 15 December 2021, when questioned about his son’s role in the event and further charges being suggested against him. He also asked that they no longer video or record him.
