Assassinations not a topic of politics: Tyagi

Patna: Calling the assassination of the two BJP leaders in Bihar as unfortunate, Janata Dal (United) leader KC Tyagi on Friday said that he did not want to play any politics on the same.

“I am with the people with the grieved families. My condolences and my Party’s condolences are with them. This is unfortunate and we are worried. Nitish ji has promised good governance and we will not shake from our promise,” he told ANI.

“I don’t want to do politics on killings. I sympathise towards the dead and their families. Their family members will be given justice,” he added.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s state vice-president Visheshwar Ojha was shot dead in Arrah city of Bihar’s Bhojpur district on Friday evening.

Ojha was returning from a wedding when some unidentified assailants fired at him and fled the scene.

Ojha’s driver and a man also got injured in the incident.

This is the second BJP leader to have been killed in the last 12 hours. This morning another local BJP leader Kedar Singh was shot dead in Chapra.
