The SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal said that the delegation will also meet Uttar Pradesh government representatives and impress upon them to arrest the perpetrators of this ghastly act immediately.
“The SAD is very clear. All those responsible for this massacre should be put behind bars immediately, however high they may be,” he added.
Sukhbir Singh Badal said the five-member delegation leaving for Lakhimpur Kheri included Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Balwinder Singh Bhundur, Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra, Bibi Jagir Kaur, and Bikram Singh Majithia.
Earlier, Shiromani Akali Dal had asked the central government to not allow any delay in proceeding against the murderers of innocent farmers at Lakhimpur Kheri.
It had also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the three agriculture laws immediately. “This is also needed to contain unrest and ensure no more lives are lost,” the SAD president said.
