AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi took out a lot of anger on the BJP while addressing a public meeting in Balrampur, UP. Referring to the incident of Lakhimpur Kheri, he said that why does Prime Minister Modi not remove Abba Jaan of Ashish Mishra, who trampled the farmers with a car, after all. Ashish’s father Ajay Mishra Teni is the Union Minister of State for Home.
He said, ‘Yogiji! Abba Jaan’s name is Ajay. Had it been Atiq, the house would have been bulldozed. Why are you silent on this matter? People want to know.’ Owaisi said that this is because Ajay Mishra belongs to the upper cast. Elections are near. He will not get upper caste votes. Had his name been Atiq in place of Ashish, wouldn’t he have driven a bulldozer at his house?
Owaisi said, ‘Why did Narendra Modi not remove Ajay Mishra from the cabinet? If father is minister, car belongs to him, 5 farmers died due to this, he warned people and after 2 days 5 farmers were killed, why doesn’t Narendra Modi sack him?’
Owaisi appealed to the Muslims to unite. Said they have to show their strength. For this the Majlis will have to vote. There is no Muslim leader in UP yet. This will happen only if they vote for Majlis.
Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni’s son Ashish Mishra, the main accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence, was arrested on Saturday night. Ashish was arrested after a 12-hour interrogation at the crime branch’s office in Lakhimpur. After this, Ashish was produced before the Judicial Magistrate late in the night. From here Ashish Mishra was sent to judicial custody till Monday. The matter will now come up for hearing on Monday. During interrogation, Ashish Mishra did not answer many questions. After that he was arrested.
