官员称，周日，北方邦LAKHIMPUR-KHERI地区的农民抗议引发事件，造成8人死亡，农民和人民党均有人丧生，事件发生在副首席部长Keshav Prasad Maurya视察之前。
Two SUVs were set on fire by angry farmers in the clash near Banbirpur in Lakhimpur-Kheri. Four of the dead were people in the cars, apparently a part of a convoy of BJP workers who had come to welcome the UP minister. They were allegedly thrashed to death.
The four others were farmers, offi als said.
Several people were hospitalised, according to the two sides.
Farmer leaders cmed that son of Union minister of state for home Ajay Mishra was in one of the cars which they said knocked down some presters who were opposing the deputy CM's visit.
The minister rejected the cm. He said the vehicle ove urned when farmers hurled stones at it, and according to another offi al account two farmers died after it fell over them.
The violence triggered outburst with opposition parties blaming the state go nment for the farmers' deaths. Within hours, the it turned into a rallying point for the opposition in the state which is gearing up for the assembly polls early next year.
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was headed to Lakhimpur on Sunday night. So were Rashtriya Lok Dal leader Jayant Chaudhary and Bharatiya Kisan Union's Rakesh Tikait.
Stop these types of violent ,fake farmers agitation .Why not wait for your go nment to come & amend bill what you want.
Did the prestors kill them??...this is not a prest..its an antinational pogrom with makicious agenda
So called farmers are anti National groups and should be arrested.
The leeches involved in the anti-farm law prests need to be dealt with by the military in the most strictest way. These people are financed by anti-nationals and Congress cohorts who want to stop development of India at any cost to make it difficult for BJP. it is time the central go nment deals with this menace with an iron hand.
this are goons in the name of farmers. They should be dealt with iron hands
good reason to arrest leaders for arson and rioting
How are "poor farmers" able to stage expensive prests these days?
These anarchists now string looting and routing in the name of farmers
Shame Congress, left , SP , AAP & all those individuals hu r funding this nonsense & will not hesitate to STAGE such “ACCIDENTS” , RAPES. & all kinds of anarchist activities to hoodwink people
Tikait has blood on his hands. Appalled that SC & GOI have failed to put this goon behind bars.Due to UP ions, more & more so called violence disguised as farmer prest will spike. Request CM of UP to immediately get these blockades cleared.
Scamgrass wants to creat prblems everywhere.
Now started looting and rioting in the name of farmers
THIS IS NOT A FARMERS AGITATION BUT A MALAFIDE OPPOSITION ONSLAUGHT ON THE DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVT .... PEOPLE SHOULD VOTE AGAINST POLITICAL PARTIES SUPPORTING THE AGITATION
It is highly deplorable that the highest authorities be it executive, judiciary or legislature are treating farmers agitation as a trivial road jam problem. Nothing can be more short sighted. Scrap the three atrocious Farm Laws and restore peace. No one wants them except a handful of capitalists.

Police and intelligence department should verify the origin of who stimulated the violence.
Poor farmers are killed. and corporates are becoming rich
All these dead to be identified to prove and confirm they are infact fake farmers gathered on daily payouts.
Request farmers to stop troubling normal public
Farmers are doing So called peaceful prest by blocking roads, stalking people. They break barricades using tractors and call the prest peaceful
Hooligans in the guise of farmers!
