Lenin statue vandalisation: Two held in Tripura's Belonia town

Lenin statue vandalisation: Two held in Tripura's Belonia town

The BJP leaders were unfazed and in fact condoned the vandalism, stating Lenin was a foreigner and his statues should be removed.

Following the complaints lodged by CPM functionaries, the police registered an FIR and arrested the driver of the JCB, who was later let off on bail. Yes, the CPI-M has presided over a party-state in Tripura for over two decades like it did in West Bengal for 30-odd years, and atrocities, violence, intimidation and vandalism have been a part of its governance record too. He stated that there is no need to deploy police for protection of Periyar Statue. Meanwhile, Belonia Municipal Council's CEO Amit Ghosh said that the vandalised statue will be kept at the premises of the municipal body in Agartala.

Amidst the justification the entire BJP-RSS brigade on vandalization of Lenin's statue, the Tamil Nadu has witnessed the destruction of the statue of Dravidian icon EV Ramaswamy, widely known as Periyar. A poster was also found from the spot with the word "Radicals" written on it, they said.

Although he initially took his own sweet time to make his party and government stance clear.

Recording the submission, the bench suo motu impleaded the Tamil Nadu government and passed the direction.

Chief Justice Indira Banerjee of the Madras HC stated that all the statues have to be protected, in the light of the act of vandalism on a Periyar statue in Tirupattur.

Speaking for the government, state fisheries minister D Jayakumar said the matter should be put to rest since Raja has apologised. The PM in an official statement said that stern action will be taken against those found guilty of violence and vandalism. Of course, BJP condemned this barbaric act, but they forgot that vandalizing anything is against the law.

"Hatred and division is the face of BJP and it is a reflection of a new kind of politics". BJP did not react to his post while Tamil Nadu state unit president Tamilisai Soundararajan said these were not the party's views. Local reports suggest that the accused then attempted to flee but bystanders nabbed him and called in local police. Pulling down statues of ideological foes is not the way forward; the BJP must rein in the strand of a pretty vicious anti-intellectualism within its ranks which is more suited to Mao's Cultural Revolution than Mother India's inclusive embrace. "We demand very strong action against culprits", said Sayantan Basu, General Secretary, WB BJP.
