A plenary gift for the Congress party

The trend of attacking statues of prominent people continues. Two weeks back, statues of Lenin were destroyed amidst slogans of ‘Jai Sri Ram’. These incidents were taken lightly, saying it was an over enthusiastic response to the TDP end of the 25 year long CPI rule in Tripura. Then the same was repeated with Periyar statues in Tamil Nadu.

These saw a response in Bengal, where Jan sangh founder Shyam Prasad Mukherjee’s statue in the Kalighat area was destroyed. A similar incident has occured now. Jawahar Lal Nehru’s statue in Katwa Phone Maidan was defaced with ink by miscreants. The police are now looking for the perpetrators. Congress party cadres in Bengal have strongly condemned the incident.
