The farmer leaders have said that the protests will continue, until the time, government makes a law on minimum support price (MSP) and removes Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra.
Eight people were killed in the incident, after UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya had visited Lakhimpur Kheri on October 3.
The Uttar Pradesh Court has deferred hearing on bail plea of the accused—Union Minister Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish till November 15, and two others in the case.
The FIR lodged on the basis of a complaint by Sumit Jaiswal, who claimed to have been among the BJP workers going to welcome Uttar Pradesh's Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya for a wrestling event.
The farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said those whose killed BJP workers in Lakhimpur Kheri reacted only to vehicle running over protestors.
Post the violent clashes between farmers and BJP workers in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri, farmers' umbrella organization Sanyukt Kisan Morcha demanded arrest of Union minister's son, Ashish Mishra "Monu" and several others.
SP leader and MP Shafiqur Rahman Barq had said Taliban wanted to free their country and it was their internal matter.
The Ram temple movement in the past had assumed such a shape that virtually the entire country was linked to it, Maurya said, adding that it is wrong to see the issue through the Hindu-Muslim prism.
'The police have levelled baseless allegations on Sadaf and put her in jail,' Priyanka Gandhi said.
Keshav Prasad Maurya said that it seemed by Priyanka Gandhi's behaviour that the party has become a 'danga karao party' and it cannot tolerate the peaceful atmosphere and development in Uttar Pradesh.
Keshav Prasad Maurya was campaigning for the BJP candidate, Narendra Mehta, in Mira Bhayander constituency in Thane.
The five men, accused of sedition in Bulandshahr violence case, were accorded a hero's welcome by their supporters outside the jail after they were released on bail Saturday evening.
Keshav Prasad Maurya's claim was similar to what Union Home Minister Amit Shah had said in September 2018 as the BJP president while addressing the party leaders in the national executive meeting in New Delhi.
He said the matter was being heard in the Supreme Court and efforts were also being made for a solution through mediation. "If these two options do not work, we will enact a law," he said.
Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya's remarks came a day after Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray asked the BJP-led NDA government to declare a date for the construction of the Ram temple.
Maurya said Ayodhya has never been a political issue but a matter of faith.
