Supreme Court works well if it is allowed to function – Rakesh Tikait
Lucknow: The bail of Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra Teni, accused of crushing farmers with a jeep in Lakhimpur Kheri, has been canceled by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has asked Ashish to surrender within a week.
Rakesh Tikait, leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) and the face of the agrarian movement, has welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision.
He has said that the country can run fine if the court uses its power.
Reacting to the cancellation of Ashish Mishra’s bail plea, Rakesh Tikait said over phone to a TV channel, “The Supreme Court works fine if it is allowed to function.
He (Ashish Mishra) has a week’s time, then he should surrender.” Regarding the Supreme Court’s comment on the Allahabad High Court’s decision, Tikait said that he cannot say anything on it. The court can tell the court. However, he also said that the entire country was assuming that wrong had happened.
Rakesh Tikait refused to accept it as defeat or victory, saying that it is a matter of justice and injustice. He said, “There is a bigger court than the Parliament. When the court uses its power, the country will run fine. Governments were not agreeing. Adhering to the court’s decision only. There should have been lobbying from the government side. Delay made. The government should stand with the aggrieved side, but the government stood with the minister.
