Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activists attacked the office of the Communist Party of India (CPI) in Bengaluru on Wednesday, setting a motorcycle on fire besides damaging property, CPI has alleged.
A FIR has been registered by the party cadre in this regard.
D Raja, General Secretary of the CPI, issued a statement, saying, “The Communist Party of India strongly condemns growing intolerance and sheer desperation resulting into attack on party state headquarters in Bengaluru as well as continuing detention of party leaders especially in Manipur and Uttar Pradesh.”
“What happened in Bengaluru in the wee hours of December 25, 2019, that is 1.40 a.m., is utter violation of all decency and unleashing of brutal attack on the property of Opposition parties, their leaders and cadres,” he added.
CPI claimed that RSS activists were seen fleeing the spot after setting the vehicle on fire and destroying M S Krishnan Memorial Hall.
In a reference to the ongoing nationwide CAA protest, Raja warned Modi government of facing “dire consequences, if they do not desist from playing with fire”.
He said, “Illegal arrests and detentions were also being reported from Uttar Pradesh and other states.”
Appealing to people and party cadre to protest against CAA, Raja urged people to expose, ‘dubious, divisive, violent and desperate attacks on party comrades and general public especially youth and students’.
