Madras HC directs Tamil Nadu government to ensure law and order

Soon after the triumph of the Tripura Election, alleged BJP workers vandalized the statue of Vladimir Lenin, a communist leader. 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.

The vandalising of statues has triggered a protest and the Dalit community are furious with the action.

At the hearing, the Tamil Nadu government told the High Court that the police had arrested four people so far for allegedly defacing Periyar's bust in Vellore.

Terming these incidents "extremely unfortunate", Shah said he has spoken to the party units in Tamil Nadu and Tripura and warned that "any person associated with the BJP found to be involved with destroying any statue will face severe action".

EV Ramasamy Periyar is considered as the pioneer of Dravidian Nationalism.

In less than two decades, India gives birth to its own "Talibans" as men clad in saffron attire celebrated the demolition of Lenin's statue in the northeastern state by chanting "Bharat Mata Ki Jai (Hail, mother India)". The incident, which the police claimed was perpetrated by two drunk men, assumed political significance coming as it does on the back of H Raja's provocative tweet. "Today Lenin's statue, tomorrow Tamil Nadu's EVR Ramaswami's [Periyar's] statue".

When his remarks invited strong criticism from different political groups, he deleted the post.

An alliance led by the Hindu nationalist party of Prime Minister Narendra Modi crushed the incumbent communists - who had ruled the small northeastern state for a quarter-century - in a unexpected landslide. DMK working president MK Stalin even demanded his detention under the "Goondas Act".

Purohit's assertion has come at a time when earlier in the day Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh condemned incidents of statue vandalism in several states and called it "unfortunate and unjustified".

On Wednesday morning, reports emerged that a bust of Syama Prasad Mukherjee, had been desecrated with a hammer in Kolkata by six Jadavpur University students.

"Incidents of toppling of statues have been reported from certain parts of the country". A senior officer said the incident was reported after 9 pm.

Restoration of the bust has been initiated, he said.

Police in the northern state rushed a team to the spot to avoid any untoward incident.
