BHUBANESWAR: Activists of the Bhubaneswar district unit of the BJP on Saturday staged a demonstration near the State office of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) here protesting the killing of a BJP worker at Kannur district in Kerala.

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.

State Secretary of the CPM Ali Kishore Patnaik alleged that the BJP activists attacked his party office by pelting stones. He further alleged that police did not prevent the agitating BJP workers who tried to forced their entry into the CPM office. He demanded the arrest of the BJP workers.

Dismissing Patnaik's allegations, Mohanty said BJP workers staged a peaceful agitation near the CPM office in the presence of police. This was a part of the nation-wide protest launched by the party against the murder of a BJP worker, he added.
