Statue row: BJP office attacked, Raja expresses regret

Muralidhar Rao, in his twitter post, said "The BJP does not subscribe to any kind of provoking or disrespectful statements and actions of vandalism towards leaders like Periyar". It is to be noted that the versatile actor, who himself is a rationalist, played the role of Periyar, in the movie titled "Periyar" directed by Gnana Rajasekaran in 2007.

Hours after a BJP office in Tamil Nadu was attacked, BJP National Secretary H. Raja on Wednesday expressed regret for his Facebook post that said statues of iconic Dravidian leader E.V.Ramasamy or Periyar will be razed in the state.

"The post regarding the Periyar statue was posted without my consent". Periyar is a philosophy. As soon as I came to know about it, I deleted the post. If you tell us the time and date, the followers of Periyar are ready to accept your challenge. I have spoken to the party units in both Tamil Nadu and Tripura.

"The post in my FB was done by one of the admins of my page without my permission". Today Lenin's statue, tomorrow Tamil Nadu's EVR Ramaswami's statue. "Any person associated with the BJP found to be involved with destroying any statue will face severe action from the party", he said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday spoke to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh over incidents of toppling of statues in various parts of the country post the BJP's victory in Tripura.

The man accused of throwing a petrol bomb at Bharatiya Janata Party's office in Coimbatore surrendered before the Police on Wednesday. The BJP chief's comments come almost an hour after Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the Prime Minister had expressed his strong disapproval towards such incidents.
