ARRA: Protesting against the murder of party’s state vice-president Visheshwar Ojha, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers on Sunday morning stopped Rajendra Nagar-LokManya Tilak Terminus express here.

“The Nitish Government has failed on all fronts to check the rise of the gundaraj in the state. The people have fed-up of the present regime. We condemn the motive of the present government of killing the leaders of BJP. We would intensify our protest across the state,” said a local leader.

Earlier, BJP state vice-president Ojha was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Arra.

He was shot dead while returning from a wedding.

Ojha had been named in police cases on various charges including murder and had contested the Bihar elections unsuccessfully last year.

Two other people were injured in the attack. This shooting comes 12 hours after BJP leader Kedarnath Singh was shot dead in Chappra.
