Chhattisgarh CM condemns murder of Orissa MLA

Raipur: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh has strongly condemned the murder of an Orissa legislator, official sources said today.

Unidentified gunmen shot dead Jagabandhu Majhi, an MLA of the ruling BJD in Orissa, and his personal security officer at a public meeting in Nawarangpur district on September 24.

Singh said the killers have challenged democracy by gunning down an elected public representative.

Such heinous acts should be condemned strongly and in one voice, the Chief Minister said.
