Digital Desk, Lucknow. Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra will not start the sugarcane crushing season of two cooperative sugar mills of Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh. Let us inform that on Monday, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait had warned that farmers would stay away from these mills if Union ministers attend the function. Since then, modifying the program to be held on Wednesday, the sugar mills have invited the District Magistrate.
Statement of Cooperative Sugar Mills Limited
Let us inform that in a statement on Tuesday, the Kisan Sahakari Chini Mills Limited, Sampoorna Nagar, based in Lakhimpur Kheri, said, the sugarcane crushing session of Kisan Sahakari Chini Mills Limited, Sampoorna Nagar in Lakhimpur Kheri will start from November 24 at 11 am by the District Magistrate Mahendra Bahadur. A similar statement was also issued by Sarju Sahakari Sugar Mills Ltd., Belrayan Kheri.
Steps pulled back by the threat of Tikait
Let us inform that farmer leader Tikait had said that if the Union Minister Teni comes to inaugurate the sugar mill, then no farmer will take sugarcane in the sugar mill. Tikait had said that instead the farmers would go to the District Magistrate’s office with sugarcane. No matter how much damage they do. The removal of Minister of State Ajay Mishra from the Union Cabinet is one of the six demands put forward by the United Kisan Morcha to the government to end the agitation. However, the opposition is also continuously demanding the resignation of the Union Minister of State for Home.
Minister Teni on target only after Modi’s announcement
Let us tell you that on Friday, it was announced that the government will withdraw three controversial agriculture laws. MP Mishra is on the target of farmers for the death of four farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri. Meanwhile, sources close to the Minister of State for Home said that since the Union Minister has some other engagements, he will not be able to attend the sugar mills function on November 24. Mishra was not seen in the official picture released after the conclusion of the DGP and IG conference in Lucknow on Sunday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also participated in this program. Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had written to the Prime Minister urging him not to share the stage with Mishra at the DGP function held in the state capital. BJP is also keeping distance from sharing the stage with Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni in the programs of its big leader.
