  • Share


Tripura Police took Facebook to confirm that the statue fell down due to the rain and not because people demolished it and that they have a police party as a witness of when it fell down.

A broken statue at Khumlung, PS Radhapur, West District had been given a political angle by the CPIM in Tripura where they took social media to claim that the statue was destroyed by miscreants and claimed that those miscreants were from BJP and RSS.

The Facebook page of CPIM Tripura had posted reporting that miscreants had demolished a statue of a woman performing the traditional Hojagiri dance in Khumulwng town in the state.


Following this, the west unit of the party made accusations that it was BJP and RSS who had demolished the statue. The same accusations were also made by Jitendra Chaudhary who accused BJP of vandalizing artifacts and demolishing statues and referred to past incidents and accused the BJP party of those as well and has written that Tripura is a ‘functioning lab of RSS-BJP in shaping their Hindu Rashtra model’.

However, this has turned out to be fake as Tripura Police took Facebook to confirm that the statue fell down due to the rain and not because people demolished it and that they have a police party as a witness of when it fell down. They also warned the people not to believe in such allegations and that action would be taken against anyone who is spreading rumors to destroy harmony among communities. 

Following this confirmation by the Tripura Police, the BJP party in Tripura filed a case against CPIM, its official Facebook pages and Jitendra Chaudhury. In their social media posts where they have shared the complaint which accuses CPIM of taking these heinous efforts to promote political anarchy. Moreover, they have also accused the past actions of the CPIM such as huge scams, misruling the Tripura state, corruption, etc. 

Furthermore,  an FIR was lodged at Khumulwng police station Sunday against Chaudhury under section 120 (b), 153 (a), 505 (2) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Chaudhary said he is ready to face trial as per law but also told Indian Express that “Let them (BJP) answer my post first. I didn’t say any BJP or RSS cadre has committed the crime. I said that from day one of this government, their culture of violence started by dismantling statues of Lenin and Karl Marx. Even the statue of Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore was not spared. BJP has polluted Tripura’s political, social and cultural environment. They are treating Tripura as a laboratory of Hindutva”.
