A statue of Tamil icon EVR Ramasamy or Periyar was vandalized in Tamil Nadu Vellore last night. The vandalism took place hours after a BJP leader posted on Facebook to Vandalise Periyar’s statue responding to anger over a statue of Communist leader Vladimir Lenin being pulled down in Tripura.

“Who is Lenin and what is the connection between Lenin and India? What connection has India with Communists? Lenin’s statue has been removed in Tripura. Today it is Lenin’s statue in Tripura, tomorrow it will be the statue of caste fanatic EVR Ramasamy,” said the post.

The post was later deleted and the BJP leader expressed regret and said the social media administration posted the message without permission.
