All India Congress Committee (AICC) spokesperson, Charan Singh Sapra has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should immediately seek the resignation of Union Minister of State (Home), Ajay Mishra for the involvement of his son in the Lakhimpur Kheri (Uttar Pradesh) gruesome incident of crushing agitating farmers, while Home Minister Amit Shah must explain failure to check killings of civilians by unidentified gunmen in Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing a press conference at Congress office along with senior leaders of Indian National Congress in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, including chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma, former minister and vice president Raman Bhalla, general secretaries Balwan Singh, Yogesh Sawhney and Uday Bhanu Chib here, Sapra said that the Lakhimpur Kheri incident has reminded the nation of the British Raj, when Indians were being dealt with such kind of brutalities for their demand for freedom.

The spokesperson of AIIC, the central decision-making assembly of the Indian National Congress, said that the way farmers agitation is being physically crushed and farmers threatened by the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, especially sitting Ministers, after BJP Government failed to weaken the farmers resolve to fight against black laws, is very unfortunate.

Sapra along with senior leaders of Indian National Congress in IIOJK, earlier strongly condemned the dastardly killing of three innocent civilians in Kashmir Valley on Tuesday and termed the series of targeted and selective killings in Kashmir directly under Home Ministry, as very serious issue.

He termed it as a grave failure of the Home Ministry which directly deals with the law and order in the territory.—KMS
