Earlier in the day, the Maharashtra cabinet passed a resolution expressing regret over the death of farmers in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri. The lawmakers also stood in silence as a mark of respect in the legislative assembly.

The Shiv Sena has criticized the Modi-led government for not paying attention to the demands raised by the farmers. In its editorial Saamana, the party said that the BJP-led government illegally detained Priyanka Gandhi and wanted to know why she was holding from visiting the victims' families.

Former Maharashtra chief minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis came out in support of the Yogi Adityanath-led government. They said that the UP government could investigate the case on its own.

Fadnavis said.

"The UP government is capable of investigating the Lakhimpur Kheri incident. The MVA government should look at the plight of farmers in Maharashtra,"

Four farmers died in Sunday's violence in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri. Four other people - two BJP workers, a journalist, and Union minister Ajay Mishra's son Ashish Mishra's driver - were lynched by the farmers protesting against the three farm laws and the visit of the Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister KP Maurya at a nearby village.
