Backing the protesting farmers on their demand for dismissal of Union minister Ajay Mishra, Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik said he should have resigned immediately after the Lakhimpur violence.

"Resignation of the minister should have been sought the day Lakhimpur Kheri incident took place. Otherwise too, he doesn't deserve to be a minister," he told reporters in Jhunjhunu.

“The government won’t return to power if it does not listen to farmers… If it agrees to guarantee MSP, I will mediate and convince the farmers to call off stir,” he said. — PTI
