The Congress delegation urged President Kovind to “sack union minister Ajay Mishra, whose son Ashish Mishra, is accused of mowing down farmers in Uttar Pradesh.” 

According to Rahul Gandhi, who spoke to the media after meeting the President said: “We told President Kovind we have two demands. We want independent enquiry. And we want MoS Ajay Misra removed. Till he is at his post, there can’t be justice.” 

Meanwhile, the Congress has also submitted a detailed memorandum to President Kovind stating its demands.

“The families believe that till his minister father is in the post there can be no justice. This is also the demand of the people of the UP and the all right-thinking people of the country. The president said he will consult the government,” said Priyanka Gandhi. 

“Hope for Justice should never stop. We have raised demands on behalf of the victims,” said Priyanka Gandhi after the meeting.
