Mumbai: Maharashtra Vikas Agadi (MVA) alliance today called for a statewide bandh in Maharastra over Lakhimpur Kheri violence. The violence took place on October 3.
But, throughout the band, the trade of essential goods has been granted. On Saturday, the ruling alliance of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Congress and Shiv Sena, Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA), stated that the bandh had been called to reveal that the state is with the farmers of the nation.
”Our party will participate in full force in Maharashtra’s bandh on October 11 to protest the killing of farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri,” said Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut.
Crashing the ruling government over the bandh leader of the opposition and former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has termed the statewide bandh call as a hoax. He stated that the government is making it done with the cooperation of the policemen.
”Following the Maha Vikas Aghadi government came to power, two thousand farmers have committed suicide in Maharashtra so far,” Fadnavis appended.
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) further opposed the Maharashtra bandh. MNS leader Ameya Khopkar stated that the government should have paid these farmers one day or acted overtime rather.
”It is not right to harass residents as the lockdown previously troubles individuals,” Khopkar added.
Given the bandh, safety arrangements have been lifted in the state’s capital Mumbai. The police on Sunday stated that stringent patrolling would be maintained to assure no unfortunate event takes place.
