Opposition workers on Thursday burnt the effigies of RJD chief and in the capital and other places in the state to protest an alleged attack on the office and its workers.

Leader of Opposition led hundreds of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members on a march from the party office to the busy Dak Bungalow square in the heart of Patna. Kumar said the protest by the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance has been staged at all district headquarters in against the attack on the office "by RJD goons".

"We have burnt the effigies of Lalu and Nitish in Patna to protest against what happened on Wednesday when RJD workers attacked workers," Kumar told the media.

He said a delegation of NDA leaders will meet the Governor soon in connection with the incident.

However, there were few of the BJP's allies Lok Janshakti Party, HAM and RLSP leaders and workers during the protest.

Angry workers shouted slogans against Lalu and Nitish "Lalu-Nitish murdabad". They also shouted slogans against Lalu's two sons Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav. Tejashwi is the Deputy Chief Minister and Tej Pratap is Health Minister.

On Wednesday, half a dozen persons were injured in a violent clash between RJD and workers in Patna, a day after IT raids in connection with alleged "benami" property deals involving RJD chief and his family.

The clash took place in front of the state headquarters office on the busy Birchand Patel Marg near the IT square in the heart of Patna.

Later both and RJD workers lodged FIRs against each other in connection with the clash.
