My son was not there… else he would not have survived attack, says Ajay Mishra
As the political row over the Lakhimpur Kheri violence intensified on Monday, Union minister Ajay Kumar Mishra Teni dismissed allegations that his son was allegedly driving a vehicle that mowed down several people, including four farmers, a day ago.
The minister’s son, Ashish Mishra, who is facing murder charges, also claimed that the allegations against him are baseless and that he was not present at the scene of the incident.
“My son was not there. In the program, there were thousands of people, including police and administration. My son was present at the program venue from 11 am and continued to stay there till the conclusion of the program. So there is no chance of my son being present at the spot,” he said.
The Union minister was referring to a program that was organized to welcome Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya in the district.
Violence broke out after two vehicles belonging to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers, en route to the event, allegedly ran over four cultivators who were demonstrating against Maurya’s visit at Tikonia-Banbirpur road in Lakhimpur Kheri.
