‘Rail roko’ on Oct 18 if minister isn’t sacked: Farmers


For six hours on October 18, farmers in “every district” will be out on railway tracks, staging a blockade in protest against “no action” being taken against Union minister Ajay Mishra in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence, farmer leaders under the aegis of Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) said on Thursday. The minister has been accused of criminal conspiracy by farmers and his son has been arrested after being booked for killing four farmers and a journalist.
