Listen to the news
The farmers ‘movement that started with the demand to repeal the three agricultural laws may have ended, but farmers and small farmers’ unions in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh are worried that the government will have to convince them of their demands. One of the big issues is the removal of Home Minister Ajay Mishra Tenny from the Modi cabinet. BKU (true, apolitical) leader Chaudhry Harpal Singh also said that Tenny, the Home Minister, had no moral right to continue in the cabinet. The Prime Minister must decide on this matter. Opposition parties in Parliament have raised concerns over the issue.
Theni told the Criminal Minister
Former Congress president and MP Rahul Gandhi has sought to raise the issue of dismissal from Theni cabinet in the Lok Sabha. Rahul Gandhi said that your minister killed farmers and should be punished. The opportunity to speak on this subject should come. Some MPs have given notice of the adjournment resolution. Rahul Gandhi also said that Tini was a criminal minister. TMC MP Sushmita Dev also gave notice of the adjournment motion. Also on Thursday, opposition MPs were seen holding placards in their hands saying ‘Dismiss the assassin minister’.
Theni received instructions that the minister was acting recklessly
On Wednesday, December 15, Union Home Minister Lakhimpur Kheri misbehaved with the media. It is learned that he has received strong instructions from the BJP leadership for this. On December 16, while Theni was sitting in his office at the Union Home Ministry, opposition MPs raised the issue of him in Parliament. He managed some files and business. He then uploaded a video on Facebook. The video shows Prime Minister Modi and the Union Home Minister paying special attention to the collection of evidence in criminal cases. Now the emphasis is on others, including the forensic investigation. So that the matter is not diluted in court. Opposition groups called for the beleagured PM to resign. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi also did not suggest any change in the attitude of the government in Parliament. He clarified that he was not ready to discuss the matter with the central government. Prahlad Joshi said the Lakhimpur Kheri case was being heard in the Supreme Court. So there is no justification for debate in Parliament on this.
Many BJP leaders are also angry with Theni.
While playing the Brahmin card in Uttar Pradesh, Ajay Mishra has given Theni a place in Prime Minister Modi’s cabinet. The Tikunia violence in Lakhimpur Kheri has caused trouble for Teni. In this case, the government is constantly suggesting that there should be no pressure, but the main culprit in the Tikunia violence case is Ashish Mishra, the son of Home Minister Teni. The SIT set up by the Supreme Court in the case has convicted a total of 14 people. The SIT also changed the criminal killings division with a court order, citing the violence as planned violence. Minister of State for Home Affairs Mishra was also in Lakhimpur Kheri on the day of the violence. Tried desperately to save the son. But Tenny is constantly on fire without taking any action against him. Even BJP internal leaders are not in a position to say anything about Theni’s future. On Wednesday, December 15, a senior leader, while cracking down on a journalist, said it was even harder to call his son an idiot without taking his name. The source says the state Home Minister should refrain from giving clean chit and wait. It should be remembered that there is a BJP government in Uttar Pradesh and at the Center. He was also a minister at the Center.
How will Theni say goodbye in view of UP elections?
Giving the message that the farmer should be friendly, Rahul Gandhi started raising the issue with the demand to remove Tenny over the violent incident in Lakhimpur Kheri. BJP leaders also agree that the SIT report on the incident is sending the wrong message to the people demanding the removal of Tony. In such a scenario, even though the central government has not given any indication of action against Ajay Mishra Theni, there are complete indications that the central leadership should take a big decision to curb the discontent of the farmers when Lakhimpur Kheri violence in the north becomes an issue. Pradesh may be elections. A BJP leader from Lakhimpur Kheri also said that the time till February 2022 was a bit delicate and after that everything would be fine.
