Two protesters allegedly moved into the CPI (M) head office, New Delhi on 7th June 2017 by shouting slogans to manhandle the party general secretary Sitaram Yechuri. They were later arrested by police and taken to the Mandir Marg police station.
The attackers reportedly tried to prove that they are the members of Hindu Sena. The latest incident happened during a press conference in New Delhi. The aim of the protesters was to enter the pressroom to disrupting the conference. The anti-CPI (M) protesters at the press hall raised slogans like “Hindu Sena Zindabad” and “CPI (M) Murdabad”. Then, the CPI (M) party workers captured them and handed over to police.
The party general secretary of CPI (M) also stated that he was fighting the battle against “Sena Goondagardi” only for India. Mr. Yechury said that any attempt of “Sena Goondagardi” will not be able to bow down our party members. He also said that practices like RSS are not result oriented and they will never be able to achieve success in that way.
Following the incident, attackers were apprehended by the CPI (M) party workers. According to the report, Mr. Yechury was going to join the polit bureau meeting on the first floor of the office to address the media. Kerala Chief Minister, Mr. Pinarayi Vijayan, who also attended that meeting, criticized such incident and said that it was “an attack on Indian democracy”. In the presence of Kerala Chief Minister, a tight security with additional policemen were arranged to give proper protection.
The state of Kerala has witnessed many such politically motivated incidents in the recent time. The beef-fest organized by the Youth Congress workers drew the attention of the entire nation last month.
