Lakhimpur Violence: 'They would have killed me too,' Sumit, who survived farmers' attack, narrated ordeal

Lucknow: BJP leader Sumit Jaiswal, who managed to protect himself from a violent crowd of farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri in UP, recently told a news channel that he had seen an eye-to-eye incident on the October 3 incident. Sumit Jaiswal is the same BJP leader who was seen running away from the car in a video about the incident and several opposition parties, including the Congress, had said that he was Ashish 'Monu,' son of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Kumar Mishra 'Teni.'

Jaiswal told the media that state deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya was scheduled to attend an event that day and they were going to welcome him. However, in the middle of the road, they found a crowd of "rioters" and attacked the car with sticks and sharp weapons.  Soon the glass of the car broke and the driver Hariom's eye and head were pierced by the pieces of glass. But, after that, the car went out of control and went to the shore. Everyone ran towards them shouting. According to Sumit, the atmosphere was as if they were thinking that they would continue to commit a major crime.

Seeing the situation, Sumit tried to save his life and left the car and fled. Sumit was asked who they were after all. Was he a farmer or was he ever seen in Lakhimpur? Sumit replied that he could not call the crowd a farmer. His friend Shubham Mishra was killed by the same mob and was brutally killed when they saw his body. The farmer cannot do all this. The farmer cannot be so ruthless. Sumit also said that the attackers had swords and sharp weapons in their hands and if he did not run away, the violent mob would have killed him too.
