Two persons were arrested at Tirupattur in Vellore district for allegedly vandalising the statue of Periyar.
"Six men and one woman in their early 20s who tried to deface the bust of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee have been arrested from the spot by Kolkata Police and strong legal action initiated", Kumar said in a statement.
"Persons indulging in such acts must be sternly dealt with and booked under relevant provisions of law", the Home Ministry said.
A statue of social activist and rationalist leader EV Ramasamy, better known as Periyar, was vandalised in Vellore, Tamil Nadu, on Tuesday, March 6. Raja has since removed the Facebook post and said it was published without his permission. Interestingly, prior to these interventions, some BJP leaders had endorsed the attacks and Tripura governor Tathagatha Roy had tweeted, apropos of the anti-Lenin iconoclasm, that a newly elected government can undo the work of a previous government. The attackers at the BJP's office in Coimbatore came in a three-wheeler and hurled the petrol bomb inside the office. "So I can not disregard them by demolishing their statues just as we can not tolerate demotion of statues of Netaji or Swamiji", she said. BJP's supporters recently brought down a statue of Lenin in Tripura creating much uproar. In the interview, Deodhar details how he changed the BJP in Tripura by reaching out to people in the state.
