Condemnable violence in Kheri, but not an isolated incident: Sitharaman

The violence in Lakhimpur Kheri, in which four farmers were killed, was "absolutely condemnable ," said Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, stressing that similar problems exist in other parts of India "when they happen and not when it suits others” because there is a BJP government in Uttar Pradesh.
Sitharaman, who is on an official visit to the United States, answered a question on Tuesday at a lecture at Harvard Kennedy School about the murder of four farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri and the arrest of Ashish Mishra, son of union secretary Ajay Mishra. .

He was asked why the prime minister, senior ministers, hadn't said anything about it and why there was a "defensive reaction" when someone asked about such things.

"No, absolutely not ... It's nice of you to bring up this incident, which is absolutely reprehensible, that's what each of us is saying. There are also cases happening elsewhere. I'm worried.

“India has issues of such nature happening in very many different parts of the country equally. I would like you, and many others who all know India, to raise it at every time when it happens, not just raise it when it suits us because it’s a state where BJP is in power, one of my Cabinet colleague’s son is probably in trouble, and also assume that it’s actually them who did it and not anybody else. Due course of justice will also have a complete inquiry process to establish it,” she said.

“And it’s not being defensive about my party or my PM. It’s being defensive about India. I will talk for India, I will talk for justice for the poor. I will not be mocked at. And if it is mocking, I will be defensive to stand up and say ‘Sorry, let’s talk on facts’. That’s my answer for you,” she said.
