Bus services were affected in Mumbai and neighbouring areas on Monday and most of the shops and commercial establishments remained closed in the wake of the bandh called across Maharashtra by three partners in the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to protest the killing of four farmers in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri district. Several trade organisations in Pune have expressed support for Monday's Maharashtra bandh. Meanwhile, demanding the Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra be sacked and arrested in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case, the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) has warned the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government of phase-wise protests, if the demands are not met by today (October 11). The Uttar Pradesh Police on Monday got three-day remand of Union minister Ajay Mishra's son Ashish in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case. The violence in Lakhimpur had resulted in the death of eight people, who the farmers said were allegedly knocked down by a vehicle carrying BJP workers.

    Lakhimpur LIVE: Goa Congress leader likens incident to Jallianwala Bagh massacre

    Goa Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat on Monday likened the violence at Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh last week to the massacre at Jallianwala Bagh in 1919. Speaking at a 'maun vrat' protest in Panaji, part of a nationwide protest campaign organised by the Congress party, Kamat also said that such violence against peaceful protesters is possible only in a dictatorship and not in a democracy.

    "It can only happen in a dictatorship. We have seen earlier, countries ruled by dictators have killed agitating people. When India was fighting for its freedom, then we have seen an incident like the Jallianwala Bagh and other incidents, where farmers performing a satyagraha were shot," Kamat said.

    Lakhimpur LIVE: Shiv Sena backs Varun Gandhi over his stand

    Backing BJP MP Varun Gandhi for his support to the farmers' movement, especially after the Lakhmipur Kheri incident, the Shiv Sena said all farmer organisations should pass a resolution applauding him for his stand on the issue.

    An editorial in the Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' also asked whether the blood of other MPs had “turned cold” even after seeing the “horrific” incident at Lakhmipur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh where eight people, including four farmers, were killed earlier this month.

    “The country cannot afford attempts being made to spread animosity. Varun Gandhi is the grandson of (former prime minister) Indira Gandhi and son of Sanjay Gandhi. After seeing the Lakhmipur horror, his blood boiled and he expressed his opinion,” the editorial said.
