Lakhimpur Kheri: The Supreme Court has taken cognisance of the violence in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri and decided to hear the matter Thursday, even as Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra met the grieving families Wednesday and promised them all help. As per the cause list uploaded on the apex court website, a three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice N V Ramana and justices Surya Kant and Hima Kohli would hear the matter. Eight people were killed on October 3 as violence erupted during a farmers' protest. The Uttar Pradesh government Wednesday allowed the Congress leaders Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi to visit the violence-hit district after initially saying no, and also released Vadra from three days of preventive detention. The day also saw an AAP delegation meet the affected families in Lakhimpur. No arrest has been made in the case so far.

    "Government has taken a decision (by denying permission) as per law and has also requested them (Rahul Gandhi) not to come. In the Lakhimpur case, the law will take its own course and guilty will be caught."

    "They got a chance for a photo opportunity and do Twitter politics while sitting at home. Their objective is to take photos and post it on social media. No one will be allowed to vitiate the atmosphere."

    "If they (opposition leaders) want to visit Lakhimpur, they can do after some days and meet the victims’ families. We have no objection to it."

    “He (Rahul Gandhi) might not remember that it was in the Congress regime during the emergency when the massacre took place. Sikhs were killed in 1984 riots."

    "Rahul says he wants to visit Lakhimpur to know the ground reality. If they know nothing, why you and your sister are jumping (kud rahe hai) on the issue. You put a photo of a drone being used in Sitapur. What’s wrong with it. It’s the technology which is being used by the police."

    "All the families agreed to its report. On request of one family, which had an objection, a panel of four doctors was sent for re-postmortem. The probe is being conducted in full transparency."

    Lakhimpur Kheri LIVE: Sanjay Raut asks whether UP is in Pakistan

    Sanjay Raut has questioned whether Uttar Pradesh is Pakistan as Indians are stopped from entering the state, adding that the administration is imposing Section 144 in the Lakhimpur Kheri but detaining opposition leaders in Lucknow.

    "Section 144 of CrPC is imposed in Lakhimpur Kheri and you (the government) are arresting (the opposition leaders) in Lucknow. What kind of law is this? Is UP is in Pakistan where the Indians are stopped from going? There is a restriction of movement from one state to another. Is this a new lockdown?"

    He further said, "The administration is like a caged parrot of the ruling party and it follows whatever the instruction is given by the government. There is evidence of a vehicle running over the farmers..."

    Raut added, "Priyanka Gandhi has been arrested, Rahul Gandhi is being stopped (from boarding a flight), a state CM is also stopped. What crime they have committed? Is there a new constitution in the country?"

    Raut also said that all the opposition parties will discuss whether a delegation should be sent to Lakhimpur Kheri.

    Lakhimpur Kheri LIVE: Rahul Gandhi addresses press conference

    Rahul Gandhi addresses press conference after being denied permission to visit Lakhimpur Kheri. Here are the pointers

    • The farmers of the country are being attacked by the Central government and no action is being taken against the culprits
    • Farmers are being denied their basic rights and this is why the protests have been going on since long
    • PM Narendra Modi visited Lucknow yesterday but did not pay a visit to Lakhimpur Kheri
    • We will try to visit Lakhimpur Kheri along with two chief ministers today
    • The govt does not understand or realise the power of the farmers and they are killing the farmers, which is a very dangerous situation
    • Section 144 prohibits the gathering of 4 or more people. In total, we are three people who want to visit Lakhimpur and so we cannot be stopped
    • We are being denied permission to visit Lakhimpur, while leaders from other political parties are being allowed. I want to understand the crime I have committed
    • We are in the Opposition and hence it is our job to build up pressure as we did in the Hathras rape case - Rahul Gandhi on being asked if the Congress party is politicising the issue
    • The BJP/RSS have controlled the institutional structure of the country. There is no democracy, but dictatorship in the country. Political leaders are being denied permission to visit areas they want to
    • The voice of the common man is being suppressed and the prices of fuel are being raised
    • We are trying to tell the government that it should allow democracy to work in its natural way
    • We are not going to allow a criminal, who calls himself the son of a home minister, to run a government
    • We as Congresspeople are trained to handle situations involving manhandling. Detaining, arresting me or Priyanka won't stop us from visiting where we want to
    • I want to understand the ground reality of the situation and hence want to visit Lucknow
    • 'Will there be an action on the culprits?' is a question that is asked in dictatorship, not democracy
    • I am not aware of the present situation, but want to go and meet the families of those who have been killed
