Senior RSS official Indresh Kumar on Thursday condemned the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri, but attacked opposition parties, accusing them of creating an “atmosphere of hatred and violence” in the country.
He commended the government of Yogi Adityanath in Uttar Pradesh for establishing an investigation into the incident in order to bring the culprits to justice.
Some opposition leaders and parties create an atmosphere of hatred and violence in the country. The incident which took place in Lakhimpur kheri is reprehensible. I commend the state government for condemning the incident and for opening an investigation so that the perpetrators are punished and the victims are brought to justice, ” said Kumar, a member of the RSS national executive committee.
He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event organized to mark Narendra Modi’s two decades of governance in his tenure as Chief Minister of Gujarat and Prime Minister.
Leader Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) said that the agitation of farmers against three central agricultural laws had never been a national movement and that it remained a victim of the designs of extremists and the policies of opposition parties.
It was never a national movement of farmers. All the time they (the farmers) made calls for a Bharat bandh which were completely unsuccessful. The farmers’ movement has remained a victim of “ativadis” and political parties, ”he said.
Alleging that the leaders of the opposition parties are “ vitiating ” the country’s atmosphere by clinging to the agitation of the farmers, Kumar said the Center has kept the doors open for the farmers and called on the protesters to come forward and talk to the government for a quick resolution of the problems.
