Demanding the arrest of Ashish Mishra, Sidhu begun a hunger strike at late journalist Raman Kashyap`s house in Lakhimpur who died in the violence on October 3.
“Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Navjot Singh Sidhu is sitting on a hunger strike and demanding that the son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra is made part of the investigation in the Lakhimpur massacre,” tweeted Punjab unit of Congress.
After meeting Kashyap’s family, Sidhu also slammed the BJP-led Uttar Pradesh government, and said, “Nothing is greater than law and justice. But no action is being taken by the state government because the accused is the minister’s son.
Now the law is different for both, people in power and poor people. Police can do anything as they are highly efficient, but nothing is being done in this case.”
