The Lenin statue was tried to destroyed, name-calling going on in Tripura post-election.

It appears that a crowd of people, most of them wearing saffron shirts and shouting “Bharat Mata ki Jai”, illegally using a bulldozer at a public square demolished statue of Lenin in Tripura on Saturday, literally after 48 hours of elections results.


A bunch of people known as ‘À la Baghdad 2016’ with a bulldozer in tow, illegally knock down a statue of Lenin in a public square in Tripura’s Belonia, a video released by ANI earlier today showed.

This in the midst of complaints acknowledged by the Tripura police yesterday of post-poll violence from diverse parts of the state since Sunday, and in spite of the BJP warning its followers of “stern” action if they indulged in “post-poll violence”. Union minister Rajnath Singh called the Tripura governor this morning to talk about the law and order situation in the state

The incumbent previous government on this Saturday in Tripura was routed by the right-wing BJP in Assembly elections. The CPM party has been running the state for as long as 25 years and lost to a party that in the previous state election could not even score a single seat with less than a 2 percent vote.

The CPM assumed that supporters and activists of the BJP-Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura alliance were petrifying its workers by burning party offices since the announcement of poll results on Saturday.

“Over 240 people were injured in attacks on party offices, offices of Left trade unions and homes of prominent leaders in the last 48 hours,” Said CPM office secretary Haripada Das.

BJP leader Subal Bhowmick said, “The situation is being closely monitored by the party and no one would be spared if they were found creating tension in the state.”

He also alleged that the CPM activists were also, “assaulting” 49 of its party supporters, 17 of whom had to be hospitalized.
