Sakshi Mishra, the daughter of Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA Rajesh Mishra has alleged that she faces a life threat from her father, brother and their associates for marrying a Dalit man. On the other hand, the MLA said that he was not against his daughter’s marriage to a Dalit youth, Ajitesh Kumar, but his main concern was that the boy was nine years elder to his daughter.
“As a father, I am naturally concerned about my daughter’s future. I want them to return home,” he told reporters.
In her video, she refers to her father and brother using their nicknames “Pappu Bhartaul” and Vicky Bhartaul”.“Honourable MLA Pappu Bhartaul Ji and Vicky Bhartaul Ji, please live and let us live in peace. I am married. I’m not wearing sindoor for fashion. I request you to take back your dogs (goons) or else face legal consequences,” she can be heard saying in the video.
She further requested other Bareilly MLAs and MPs not to help her father to find them.
Sakshi has posted a video on social media and she asked her father to accept the marriage or face legal consequences. The video was shot by her husband – Ajitesh Kumar, a businessman whom she married on July 4. She also appealed to Bareilly Superintendent of Police to protect her and her husband as their lives were in danger because of her father’s goons.
His father has denied the allegations and said that he is busy with his party’s works. The MLA hails from Bithari Chainpur, Bareilly district.
In a written statement, he said that his daughter was an adult and was well within her rights to take her own decisions.
The MLA further said, “I am busy with my party work and membership drive and I have not said a word to my daughter. These allegations are false,” he said.
SSP Bareilly Muniraj, meanwhile, told reporters that full protection would be given to Sakshi Misra and her husband Ajitesh Kumar.
“We are not aware of their present location and as soon as they come into contact with us, we will give them protection,” the SSP said.
