IPFT gives cold response as BJP announces Tripura CM

CPI alleges BJP unleashing violence against its cadres in Tripura

Chennai: Tamil Nadu BJP leader H Raja kicked up a row afer he said that statues of rationalist leader E V Ramasamy "Periyar" could be the next to be pulled down after a Lenin statue was razed in Tripura. "There is no truth in BJP workers engaged in large-scale violence; rather CPI (M) orchestrated violence masquerading as our workers", State BJP vice president Subal Bhowmik said.

Raja later deleted the post after facing severe backlash from all quarters in Tamil Nadu. "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.

Hours after the statue of Lenin was brought down in Tripura, BJP leaders in Tamil Nadu celebrated the fall of the Communist government in that state, while issuing a warning to Dravidian parties.

Agitating mob completely demolished a statue of Lenin in South Tripura's Belonia town on Monday using a bulldozer.

The dismantling of a statue of the Russian Communist Vladimir Lenin in Tripura, where a BJP alliance has ended 25 years of Left rule, divided India's political class on Tuesday.

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.

Erode Venkata Ramasamy (17 September 1879 - 24 December 1973), commonly known as Periyar or Thanthai Periyar, was a social activist, and politician who started the Self-Respect Movement and Dravidar Kazhagam.

Reacting to the post on the Facebook page, MK Stalin said, "No one can even dare to touch EVR's statue". What is his connection to India? H Raja's comments are done to incite violence. The MDMK, CPM and CPI have also demanded action against Mr Raja. The political tussle was exacerbated by Tripura governor Tathagat Roy, who, in a tweet on Tuesday, appeared to have condoned the act of pulling down the statue of Lenin.
