Stepping up pressure over the Lakhimpur incident, a Congress delegation led by Rahul Gandhi met President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday and urged him to ensure the immediate sacking of Union Minister Ajay Mishra and an impartial judicial probe by two sitting judges of the Supreme Court. Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish Mishra, who has been named in an FIR, was arrested on Saturday by the Uttar Pradesh Police in connection with the mowing down of four farmers on October 3 in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh. “There cannot be an impartial inquiry and justice cannot be given till the time the MoS Home is sacked. “This is the voice of not just the families of those killed but also of all the farmers and this voice is being suppressed,” Gandhi said after the Congress leaders presented a memorandum to the President.
