4 accused in Lenin statue demolition

Periyar EV Ramasamy with BR Ambedkar

What is the connection between him (Lenin) and India? "I have spoken to the party units in both Tamil Nadu and Tripura".

According to sources in Tamil Nadu Intelligence wing, the attack on the Periyar's statue took place following a "provocative" social media posting by H Raja, the BJP's national secretary. Through the Facebook post, Raja said that Periyar statues in his state could be the next justifying the Tripura incidents.

BJP leader H Raja, who is facing flak for a controversial post on his Facebook account on rationalist leader Periyar, on Wednesday expressed regret and blamed staff for the post.

Periyar's ideology which influenced the Tamil Nadu's regional nationalism was always an obstacle to BJP to impose their idea of Hindutva political philosophy.

AIADMK members continued to raise slogans against the desecration of the statue of Periyar-the founder of Dravidian movement.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and three chief ministers of BJP-ruled states in the northeastern region would be present at the swearing-in ceremony, state BJP spokesperson Mrinal Kanti Deb told PTI.

A petrol bomb was hurled at the Bharatiya Janata Party office here in Tamil Nadu by unidentified persons early on Wednesday, police said.

The almost 11-ft tall fibre glass statue, which stood on a pedestal at College Square, was brought down last Monday with the help of a bulldozer.

With situation threatening to go out of hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP president Amit shah have condemned the incidents and warned of strict actions against the culprits.

"(The) Ministry of Home Affairs has taken serious note of such incidents of vandalism. "Intensification of patrolling in sensitive locations, community policing for peace and harmony, check on anti-social elements and preventive measures wherever required are the main elements of the advisory", said an official release. States were asked to deal firmly with the people indulging in such acts of vandalism by booking them under the relevant provisions of law.

"As things stand, the Left Front's support base has eroded further and West Bengal is looking more and more an arena of direct political contestation between the Trinamool and the BJP". "The coming Party Congress should help us to equip the Party to face the forthcoming battles effectively".
