We need to focus on our issues.
Two statues of communist icon Vladimir Lenin has been the casualty of Safron brigade which brought down in South Tripura as the CPI (M). Back in 2001, India strongly condemned the crime committed by the fanatics.
Similarly, it is natural for them to hate Lenin who inspired working people all over the world to fight against corporate exploitation and colonial oppression. DMK MP T Siva on Wednesday gave adjournment motion notice under rule 267 in Rajya Sabha on BJP leader H Raja's remark on Periyar and desecration of Periyar statue in Vellore while a horde of DMK workers are protesting against Raja in Saidapet. The democracy, law and the country is suffering in the battle between Left and Right. With the defeat, the curtains came down on the 25-year-old Left regime in Tripura. Several BJP leaders including Ram Madhav and Subramanian Swamy had rejoiced the demolition of the Lenin's statue.
CPM Tripura secretary Bijan Dhar on Monday night alleged around 514 CPM supporters were injured in attacks by activists of the BJP and its ally the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura in more than 200 places across the state since Saturday, after the election results were declared.
The Madras High Court today directed the Tamil Nadu government to ensure law and order across the state in view of a statue of rationalist leader E V Ramasamy, popularly known as Periyar, being vandalised.
Today marks International Women's Day
In the past, the day has also been used to launch initiatives aimed at tackling gender inequality and violence against women. The challenge remains that the negative rhetoric is the very fabric that creates the glass ceiling for women's progress.
Images of the jeering mob reducing the statue to rubble sparked condemnation and a rebuke from the soon-to-be BJP chief minister in Tripura.
In the meanwhile, hours later, Tamil Nadu BJP leader H Raja said that statues of Dravidian icon EV Ramasamy "Periyar" "will be brought down". While speaking to media, Raja said, "The post on my Facebook page was done by one of the administrators without my permission".
After Lenin and Periyar, it was time for Mukherjee's statue to be targeted in West Bengal.
"We initially let the damaged statue lay there as it was since we were not sure about the mood of the people". Does it want to get into a tit-for-tat situation with the CPI-M and emulate the peripheral Marxists in theiragitprop or does it want to be the natural party of governance in India to replace the Congress? CCTV footage even showed men arriving on bikes and throwing petrol bombs outside the party office. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
