On Sunday, Several persons were injured and three vehicles were set on fire when protests on farm laws took a violent turn and unidentified persons opened fire at the farmers. 

Over a dozen farmers have been injured and unconfirmed reports said that three farmers had died in the incident. Officials, however, refused to confirm the number of deaths or the number of persons injured in the incident.

On this, Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the sacrifice of the farmers would not go in vain. He wrote, in Hindi, “The one who is silent even after seeing this inhuman massacre, he is already dead. But we will not let this sacrifice go in vain - Kisan Satyagraha Zindabad! #FarmersProtest”.

“It is understandable how much hatred there is among the BJP workers against the farmers. It is highly condemnable that the farmers who were peacefully opposing the Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya who reached Lakhimpur were trampled by the son of Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra. Strictest action should be taken against the culprits,” a tweet from the official Indian National Congress read.
