In protest against the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, the United Kisan Morcha (SKM) has changed the day of burning effigies of other leaders including PM Modi and Amit Shah. Now instead of 15, it will be lit on 16 October.
Actually, statements related to hurting religious beliefs were coming from some places. After this SKM has taken this decision. The Bharatiya Kisan Union informed about the change in the program by tweeting from its official Twitter handle at 1.55 pm on Thursday. Let us inform that the Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni is angry with the farmers due to non-arrest.
The announcement was made from Tikunia
On October 12, the last Ardas was held in Tikunia of Lakhimpur Kheri. Here the United Kisan Morcha had announced four programs. There was also a program to burn effigies of anti-farmer leaders on October 15. It was decided that the effigies of leaders like Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Ajay Mishra, Narendra Singh Tomar, Yogi Adityanath, Manohar Lal Khattar etc. would be burnt. It will be celebrated as Dussehra festival.
Because of this the program changed
On behalf of the United Kisan Morcha, Ravi Azad came on Facebook LIVE at 2.30 pm on Thursday and informed about the changes in this program. He said that the government is completely engaged in giving Hindu and Sikh communal color to the effigy burning program. We came to know about this through social media. After this, understanding the conspiracies of BJP and RSS, the timing of the program was changed. Ravi Azad said that there will be no effigy burning program in the Terai region Lakhimpur Kheri, so that the government cannot do any conspiracy there again.
These are the four programs of farmers
Why is this movement?
On October 3, four farmers and a journalist were crushed to death by a Thar vehicle in Lakhimpur Kheri, UP. The charge is on Ashish Mishra Monu, son of Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni. Monu is arrested. SKM demands that the minister should be sent to jail and dismissed from the post of minister in the murder case. Farmers are agitating under the leadership of SKM regarding this.
