Rampur (Uttar Pradesh), Dec 25 (IANS) Lok Sabha member Jayaprada Thursday courted arrest here to protest the lynching of an Uttar Pradesh government engineer early Wednesday morning, allegedly by a ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislator. The actor-turned-politician led over 200 Samajwadi Party activists’ demonstration against the killing of government engineer M.K. Gupta in Auraiya, the central Uttar Pradesh town.
The MP from Rampur said there would be more such agitations against the alleged “hooliganism of the ruling BSP under the patronage of party supremo and Chief Minister Mayawati”.
The protesters were taken to Rampur police lines and were released later.
