PM Modi condemns incidents of vandalism of statues; MHA calls for action

PM Modi condemns incidents of vandalism of statues; MHA calls for action”

Expressing concern about the statue vandalism in Tamil Nadu, Tripura and Bengal, PM Modi had a word with Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Following the talks, the Home Ministry issued advisories to states asking them to take all necessary precautions to prevent such incidents.

An advisory from the Minsitry of Home Affairs (MHA) said, "Incidents of toppling of statues have been reported from various parts of the country".

The statement also said persons responsible for such acts must be sternly dealt with and booked under relevant provisions of law.

That night police arrested two men in Tamil Nadu's Vellore district for vandalising a statue of Periyar, a Dravidian icon who led the Self-Respect Movement in South India to eradicate social inequality, especially caste discrimination.

"Incidents of toppling of statutes have been reported from certain parts of the country".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated the new premises of the Central Information Commission in Delhi. On Monday, a statue of Communist icon Vladimir Lenin was demolished in Tripura, a Northeastern state in India. The PM's reaction came a little ahead of reports of vandalism of the bust of Bharatiya Jana Sangh founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee in Kolkata this morning.

"Lenin was a foreigner. And (you) want statue of such a person erected in our country?"

An empowered citizen is the "strongest pillar" of democracy and the government has tried to "inform" and "empower" people in the last four years through various means, the Prime Minister said. The CPI-M has also alleged that Tripura's new ruling party, BJP, ransacked homes of several CPI-M workers.

In a series of posts on Twitter, he wrote that "What one democratically elected government can do another democratically elected government can undo".
