RLD MLA raises Tikunia  incident in House

Wednesday, 07 December 2022 | PNS | Lucknow

The ghost of Tikunia incident in Lakhimpur Kheri visited UP assembly after RLD MLA from Budhana Rajpal Singh Baliyan raised the issue seeking information about the number of farmers who died in the incident and the number of farmers injured, amount of compensation given to the deceased farmers’ families and government jobs given to their kin.

In the incident, four farmers and a journalist were killed after the jeep of Union Minister for State for Home Ajay Mishra’s son ran over them.           

The government said a total of four farmers (two belonging to Kheri and two from Bahraich) and their dependents were given compensation (Rs 45 lakh each) while 13 injured farmers were not given any compensation. 

The government further said the dependents of the deceased farmers had not been given any government jobs as yet.  

National convener of Team RLD Anupam Mishra said the anti-farmer face of the government had come to the fore once again. “It was assured by a responsible official of the government in front of the media that the injured would be given Rs 10 lakh and one family member of each deceased would be given a government job according to their educational qualification. However, the state government has not given any help to them till date. It shows that the government is not only insensitive, but also considers the farmers unimportant,” he said.
