LUCKNOW: An Aam Aadmi Party delegation Wednesday reached Lakhimpur Kheri to meet the families of farmers who lost their lives during a protest in the district Sunday.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also spoke to one affected family over the phone and extended deepest condolences and assured all possible help.

"AAP delegation reaches Lakhimpur Kheri. MP Sanjay Singh, LoP Harpal Cheema MLA, MLA Raghav Chadha and others met relatives of the deceased farmer Nachhatar Singh," the party said in a tweet around 5.30 pm.

The party also shared a video of Chief Minister Kejriwal speaking to the family over phone.

In a video he tweeted earlier, Sanjay Singh said he was in police custody for 55 hours in Sitapur.

"Now, I am allowed to go alone to Lakhimpur where leaders from Punjab will meet me and then we will go to meet the victims' families," he said in the video.

He also asked why no action has so far been taken against junior home minister Ajay Kumar Mishra and his son for allegedly mowing down four farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri.

"Is an impartial inquiry possible? Three vehicles of the minister crush farmers and yet he continues to be the home minister of the country," Singh said.
