Vaiko questions BJP leadership for letting off H Raja
"Why hasn't H Raja, who is the reason behind the demolition of Periyar statue, been arrested yet," MDMK chief Vaiko questioned.
Speaking to journalists at Chennai airport, he said, "It is the truth that H Raja made a statement saying Periyar statues will be removed in TN. When Lenin's statue was removed yesterday in Tripura was Rajnath Singh in coma? Was Modi unconscious? Neither Modi's military might nor the police force of the Tamil Nady government that supports him, will be able to go near a Periyar statue without getting their hands chopped off first," he warned.
"H Raja had said earlier that he will hit Periyar with his slippers. If he is a real man, he will accept that he said this. It was wrong to let him live in this country after he made that statement," Vaiko added.
