Shukla will be listed as martyr: Cong

The Congress on Wednesday downplayed reports of veteran party leader Vidya Charan Shukla’s name missing from the martyrs’ list of those killed in the May 25 Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh.

“Shukla and one more Congress worker had succumbed to their injuries much later. This was the first list of 28 people, who were killed in the Maoist attack. The two names will also be included as martyrs.  Everybody who died in the Maoist attack be it a Congress worker or leader or a security personnel, all of them will be included in the martyrs’ list,” party general secretary in charge of Chhattisgarh B K Hariprasad said.
