Ludhiana, October 11

The Congress, led by MLAs Surinder Dawar, Sanjay Talwar and Lakhbir Singh Lakha, Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu and District Congress Committee (DCC) Rural Karanjit Singh Soni Galib and DCC Urban president Ashwani Sharma, held a `maun vrat’ (vow of silence) against the Lakhimpur violence and demanding sacking of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra Teni, besides arrest of all culprits responsible for the killing of innocent people, including four farmers.

They accused the NDA government of adopting an insensitive attitude towards the farming community and lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not uttering a single word over the Lakhimpur incident.

They said the BJP-led Central Government had not even spoken to families of the victims killed in the incident and said justice could be assured only when the minister was sacked.
