“Have you seen this video Modi ji? This video shows the son of a member of your council of ministers running over farmers with his vehicles. Please see this and tell the country why is this man still at large and why has the minister not been sacked?”
AAP leader Sanjay Singh and former Congress president Rahul Gandhi also shared the video on Twitter and Facebook, respectively, asking why no arrests have been made 48 hours after the incident, which left eight persons, including four farmers dead.
Meanwhile, BJP MP Varun Gandhi sharing the same video said it was soul wrenching and perpetrators seen in the clip should be identified and brought to justice.
लखीमपुर खीरी में किसानों को गाड़ियों से जानबूझकर कुचलने का यह वीडियो किसी की भी आत्मा को झखझोर देगा।

Vadra asked the prime minister, who is visiting Lucknow to inaugurate a programme on urban transformation as part of Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav celebrations, to come to Lakhimpur Kheri and give justice to farmers.
She said the government must answer why when opposition leaders such as herself have been kept under detention without warrants or basis, the perpetrators of the crime against farmers of the area are at large.
