Lucknow: Congress Legislature Party leader Pramod Tewari on Wednesday met Uttar Pradesh Governor B L Joshi and demanded immediate arrest of the killers of a party worker in Munishiganj area of Amethi recently.

The CLP leader told Joshi that since the father of the slain party worker has expressed suspicion about the role of a BSP MLA in the murder, his intervention was needed to bring the culprits to book.

He also demanded that action be taken against the killers under the NSA and Gangsters Act.

In case the government fails to take action in this connection in a week's time, the case should be handed over to the CBI, he said.

Alleging that Congress workers, especially those from Rae Bareli and Amethi were being harassed and framed by the BSP government, Tewari warned that Congress would be forced to launch agitation against it soon.

Rajjan Shukla alias Mayankesh was shot dead by unidentified persons outside Juhipur village late on Monday night while he was on his way home.
