The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on March 6, 2018 on violence in Tripura.

True to its character the BJP-RSS and their allied organisations have unleashed unprecedented violence against Communists and their supporters in Tripura.

Party offices of Communist Parties are being destroyed and burnt. Hundreds of party offices have been captured by RSS-BJP goons. Houses of hundreds of Communist workers have been burnt in number of places.

This is nothing but vandalism and goondaism of RSS-BJP that need to be condemned by all democratic forces.

Bulldozing of Lenin’s statue and destruction of other monuments are highly condemnable. Lenin and his ideas live in the hearts and minds of people world over. It cannot be eliminated by bulldozing one statue.

If the government fails to stop the violence in Tripura, the Communists will take it as an ideological challenge and give a befitting reply.
