Tripura CPI-M condemns attack on Yechury


Agartala:  Tripura state CPI-M today strongly condemned the attack on it’s General Secretary Sitaram Yechury that took place inside their party office in New Delhi by two suspected right-wing activists last evening. The CPI-M workers held protest rally in Agartala as soon as the information reached. The incident occurred just before Yechury was to address the press meet after the two-day meeting of CPI-M politburo. Besides, the party Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar condemned the attack on Mr Yechury and said, "It amounts to an attack on Indian democracy under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rule." The CPI-M Spokesperson Goutam das told the media here this was probably the first of its kind incident where a national leader was attacked inside the national office of a national party. "Such an incident is completely unheard of. This is an attack by the BJP-RSS, as they have been doing this against all who stand against them. I will not be surprised to hear that police remained a silent witness to it. If they (BJP-RSS) think they can scare a party like us through these attacks, they are mistaken," he stated.
