Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Monday attacked the Leftists saying that they are destroying the Indian culture. While addressing a gathering at a conference of the Akhil Bharatiya Itihas Sankalan Yojana, he said that the Communists are misleading people.
“The communists have created a batch of goons instead of cadres and trying hard to destroy the Indian culture and civilization. The communists want to gag the peoples’ voice and mislead them”, he said.
He said the people of Tripura have discarded the communist ideology and are following the ancient Indian culture and civilization. He defended his party and said that the BJP is not trying to saffronise the country. “The BJP is not trying to saffronise the country, it is the communists who have unsuccessfully tried to make the whole world red,” he said.
Comparing the communists with the Mughals and the British, he said they unsuccessfully tried to destroy the Indian culture and now communists are also trying hard to do the same. He gave the example of how Alexander had come to conquer India but he had to bow to the self-esteem of a king like Porus.
