Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday, 16 December, called Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Ajay Misra Teni a criminal and said that he should be sacked and investigated for his involvement in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident.

This comes after the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the murder of four farmers and a journalist stated that the deaths of farmers, who were run over by a convoy of vehicles, with one car belonging to Teni's son Ashish Misra, was a conspiracy.

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of protecting MoS Ajay Misra and stated, "PM is not taking any action. If no action is being taken despite the SIT report, then we have to say that the PM is protecting him."

Both houses of the Parliament were adjourned amid Opposition protests over the same.

Stating that the son of MoS is involved and he himself was the conspirator, Kharge added, "We wanted to present this before House. We had requested Chairman and had given a notice in the morning. Minister Teni had once told the farmers to break their 'satyagraha', otherwise, he knows how to make it happen within 2 minutes. Maybe his son acted on this."

Meanwhile, MoS Ajay Misra Teni was caught abusing, misbehaving, and lunging at the media on being asked about the SIT probe.

Highlighting the Union government’s “moral bankruptcy,” Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet, “The government’s refusal to sack Ajay Mishra Teni is the starkest indication of its moral bankruptcy.”

Attacking PM Modi, she added, “Narendra Modiji, carefully curated spectacles of piety and wearing religious attire will not change the fact that you are protecting a criminal.”

She further demanded MoS Teni to be sacked and charged in accordance with the law.
