On Sunday, BJP workers on their way to an event to welcome Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya in Lakhimpur Kheri had allegedly crushed protesting farmers with vehicles. After this violence broke out. Eight people, including four farmers, died in this violence.
Charanjit Channi said that the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri reminded him of the Jallianwala Bagh incident of 1919. The Punjab Chief Minister alleged, “The manner in which the SUV car was overturned and killed on the peaceful protesting farmers was done deliberately.” Looks like this kind of incident.
