Periyar statue will be razed like Lenin's

Eileen GuzmanMar 07, 2018

After the BJP ended the 25-year-long rule of the Left in the northeastern state, two statues of Lenin were found demolished, allegedly by workers of the BJP. "The destruction of the statue of Lenin, is symbolic of the rabid anti - communist, anti - democratic fascistic character of the RSS", a statement by the party said.

Meanwhile, violence erupted in Tripura and various other states after a statue of communist icon Lenin, has been pulled down by some people with an excavator machine at Belonia in South Tripura district on Monday.

CPI (M) state secretary K Balakrishnan, Dravidar Kazhagam leader K Veeramani and pro-Tamil leaders Thol.Thirumavalavan and Seeman also hit out at Raja and demanded action against him.

Tamil Nadu BJP president Tamilisai Soundararajan has distanced the party from the controversial remarks.

The BJP leader, however, deleted the Facebook post after facing huge backlash in Tamil Nadu. What is his connection to India?

Gadkari congratulated Deb for the landslide victory against the CPI (M)-led Left Front and said he hoped Tripura would move on the path of progress under his leadership.

Reacting to the post on the Facebook page, MK Stalin said, "No one can even dare to touch EVR's statue. Today Lenin's statue removed in Tripura, tomorrow it will be the statue of EV Ramasamy in Tamil Nadu".

Violent incidents have been reported from some parts of Tripura between different political factions soon after the Assembly election results came out on Saturday. BJP bagged 35 seats and the IPFT eight.

Home minister Rajnath Singh has also discussed the issue with the Tripura governor Tathagata Roy and the state police chief, saying that peace should be maintained the state till a new government assumes charge. The statue was razed by a bulldozer amidst chants of "Bharat Mata ki Jai". He was, in a way, a terrorist because of the number of people he killed there (in Russia) after imposing dictatorship there.
