TN BJP leader wants Periyar statue demolished, faces ire

The incident, which the police claimed was perpetrated by two drunk men, assumed political significance as it came after a BJP leader indicated that statues of the rationalist leader could be the next to be pulled down after a statute of Communist icon Lenin was razed by suspected BJP workers in Tripura. What connection India has with Communists?

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.

The IPFT president said the party has discussed this development with other senior leaders and will also discuss this with BJP leaders Himanta Biswa Sarma and Ram Madhav tomorrow. Lenin's statue has been removed in Tripura. Raja had reportedly said someone else had inadvertently posted it on his page.

The BJP leader, however, deleted the Facebook post after facing huge backlash in Tamil Nadu.

"Who is Lenin and what is the connection between Lenin and India?" BJP supporters also occupied 90 offices of CITU and CPI (M), Mr Dhar said.

Sporadic clashes between rival political groups were reported in different parts of Tripura after the poll results were declared. Bharatiya Janata Party swept the assembly elections in Tripura for the first time in history.

In a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, CPM Member of Parliament in the Lok Sabha, Mohammed Salim, has alleged that "goons of BJP have unleashed terror and all round attack on members and supporters of CPI-M.we request your immediate intervention to stop these attacks".

Amid reports of sporadic violence in Tripura, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today spoke to the state governor and the DGP and asked them to ensure peace till a new government is installed, an official said.

In his tweet, Suryah says, "BJP successfully completed the fall of Lenin in #Tripura!" He was, in a way, a terrorist because of the number of people he killed there (in Russia) after imposing dictatorship there.
