“State-sponsored violence”: Owaisi on UP violence

Prime News, National (Hyderabad), Oct 5:- AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi termed the violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district as a “state-sponsored violence” and severely criticised the Centre and Uttar Pradesh government over the incident in which eight people including four farmers were killed.

Speaking to ANI, Owaisi said, “It is state-sponsored violence. Both the Uttar Pradesh government and Centre have to be blamed for this (Lakhimpur) incident because the Home Ministry’s MoS made a provocative speech a few days ago that within two minutes will finish all things (farmer protest) which led to this incident.”

“We demand that for a free-fair investigation in this matter, a High Court or Supreme Court sitting judge should monitor the inquiry of this incident,” the leader said.

Owaisi also informed that he plans to visit the violence-affected Lakhimpur Kheri district to show solidarity with the people “who have been murdered by Union Minister of State’s son”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
