Party leaders said they would reach out to other opposition parties to press for their demands, including the resignation of Union Minister Ajay Kumar Mishra ‘Theni’, whose son has been arrested in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, in which some farmers was crushed by a vehicle. ,

The Congress leadership also decided to take up the issue of price hike and pressed for Rs 4 lakh compensation for all the victims of COVID-19.
