Rakesh Tikait said on mob lynching earlier; it is just a reaction to action, what he says now?

BJP's IT cell in-charge Amit Malviya has accused farmer leader Rakesh Tikait after the murder of a youth at the Kundli border. He has said that if Rakesh Tikait sitting next to Yogendra Yadav had not justified the mob lynching in Lakhimpur, then today the youth would not have been murdered like this at Kundli border. He said that the anarchy being spread behind these protests in the name of farmers needs to be exposed. 

Amit Malviya tweeted, “Had Rakesh Tikait not justified mob lynching in Lakhimpur, with Yogendra Yadav, sitting next to him, maintaining sanctimonious silence, the gory murder of a youth at Kundali border would not have happened. Anarchists behind these protests in the name of farmers need to be exposed.”

The case of the brutal murder of a person on Friday near the stage of the farmers' protest site on the Singhu border of Delhi-Haryana reached the Supreme Court. The petitioner has sought an early hearing from the Supreme Court on an already-filed petition seeking removal of the protesting farmers, referring to several past incidents including this ruthless murder.

Advocate Shashank Shekhar Jha, appearing for the petitioners Swati Goyal and Sanjeev Newar, has applied to the court and requested for early hearing. It has been said in the application that the agitators who are opposing the new agricultural laws of the central government are openly violating the law. They are openly violating the guidelines of Covid-19. Because of this, the lives of other people are in danger. It has been said in the petition that due to the agitation, many inhuman incidents have come to the fore apart from everyday troubles.
