Slogan shouting BJP activists under the leadership of district president Harekrushna Khuntia marched in a procession from Jaydev Vihar to the CPM's State office and staged a demonstration.
Vice-president of party's State unit Samir Mohanty condemned the brutal killing of BJP activist Remith who was hacked to death in the home town of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday.
