Lenin Statue Bulldozed In Tripura After Left’s Poll Debacle

Published on 6 March, 2018 at 12:20 pm By

In the recently held elections in Northeast India, the BJP expanded its footprint in the region. The saffron party ended the two-decade run of the CPM’s Manik Sarkar as chief minister. In Nagaland too, the BJP is set to form government with its new partner Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party and the support of two other candidates in a close contest. As per reports, Biplab Kumar Deb will take oath on March 8 as the next Chief Minister of Tripura.

What’s surprising here is that the saffron party was a non-entity just a few years back. The BJP forged an alliance with Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT), a tribal party, to secure 39 out of 59 constituencies.

However, Tripura is again in news but for a different reason. Reports suggest that soon after the assembly election results were announced, a mob bulldozed a statue of Communist icon Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, that stood at the centre of College Square at Belonia town in Tripura’s extreme south. It was done with the help of a JCB amid cries of “Bharat Mata ki jai’’.

The statue was installed in 2013 after the victory of Communist party.

The Quint

The CPI(M) claims that this incident is fueled by the idea of ‘Communism phobia.’ However, BJP claims that it has nothing to do with the party and was brought down by the people who were ‘oppressed’ by Left for past 25 years.

Tapas Datta, CPI(M)’s Belonia sub-division secretary said:



“Eyewitnesses told me that after the statue fell, its head was dismembered from the body. And then, the BJP workers played football with Lenin’s head.’’
