Kapil Sibal slams PM Modi for being silent over Lakhimpur Kheri violence

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for being silent over the Lakhimpur Kheri violence in which 8 people, including 4 farmers and a journalist, were killed.

Hitting out at PM Modi, Sibal said that just one word of sympathy was needed from him and that should not be difficult. How he would have reacted to the violence which took away 8 lives, he asked.

Earlier this week, Sibal had urged the Supreme Court to act suo motu on the Lakhimpur Kheri violence. He later thanked the Chief Justice NV Ramana for taking cognisance into the matter. Sibal had also said the courts in India are temples of justice that can restore the faith of the voiceless.

The Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and other opposition leaders Randeep Surjewala, Deepinder Hooda, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel reached Lakhimpur on Thursday to meet the families of farmers who were killed during the violence.
