Lucknow: Congressmen staged protest dharnas at all the tehsil headquarters in the state on Saturday demanding a CBI inquiry into the arson at residence of UPCC chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi last month and submitted memorandum addressed to the state Governor, BL Joshi through district authorities.

Congress media secretary, Vijay Saxena said that besides party workers and office bearers, MPs Jagdambika Pal, Annu Tandon and MLAs also took part in dharnas and flayed the state government's role in the crime that took place at Joshi's house in high security zone.

Reports from different tehsils in Lucknow besides Siddhratnagar, Saharanpur, Faizabad, Unnao, Hamirpur, Ghaziabad, Sitapur, Hathras, Mahrajganj, Sant Kabirnagar, Kannauj and other districts stated that Congressmen staged peaceful dharnas demanding a CBI probe into the incidents of arson.

Saxena said that in Varanasi and Bhadohi the dharna was postponed due to sudden demise of Governor designate of Gujarat, Devendra Dwivedi though a memorandum was submitted to the authorities.
