Decision to suspend Yogendra Yadav was taken in a meeting of SKM leaders
Swaraj India leader Yogendra Yadav has been suspended from Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) for a month, farmer leaders said on Thursday. The decision was deliberated upon by farmers following his visit to the deceased BJP member’s family in Lakhimpur Kheri where four farmers were mowed down.
While Yogendra Yadav extended sympathies to the driver’s family, the visit did not “reflect well for the farmers’ movement” and his suspension can be seen as a disciplinary action.
According to farmer leaders, Yadav has accepted his mistake and he will not be allowed to speak on stage and can only participate at protest sites. The leader will also not be a part of the core committee discussions during the following month.
Sources said that Yadav had reached the house of the deceased BJP worker to express condolences without informing other farmer-leaders about his visit. Later on Twitter, he shared the picture of his meeting with the family.
The decision to suspend Yadav was taken in a meeting of SKM leaders held on Thursday.
On October 12, Yadav had visited the family of Shubham Mishra, who was allegedly killed in retaliation after a vehicle ran over protesting farmers. Yadav had tweeted, “While returning from the shaheed Kisan shradhanjali, I visited BJP worker Shubham Mishra’s house. The family was not angry at us. They only asked, are we not farmers? What was the fault of our son? Why did your colleague say action-reaction? His questions are ringing in my ears.”

Disciplinary action by an undisciplined MOB. The journey from a anti-corruption activist to a thrown out member from a political party to founder of a political NGO to piggy baking a violent agitation and skillfully distancing from its violence while very much being part of it, is the credibility of the disciplined member. The agitators have all the mind set of Taliban, the disregard for the law, logic and resort to violence without provocation.
