With the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPM) general secretary Sitaram Yechury getting heckled by the Hindu Sena activists on Wednesday, senior party leader Prakash Karat condemned the incident and said that the party would counter such actions. “We condemn this incident. This hasn’t happened for the first time as earlier as well such attacks were seen in the CPI office. We will not tolerate it and will counter it,” Karat told ANI. High drama was witnessed at Yechury’s press conference, where two Hindu Sena activists were hauled by the police for heckling and allegedly trying to manhandle him.

The two men entered the premises of the building where the press conference was going on and tried to barge in chanting slogans against Yechury and also shouted ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ slogans.

However, they were immediately brought down and carted away by the police.

The Delhi Police detained Upendra Kumar and Pawan Kaul at the Mandir Marg Police Station for protesting against the CPI (M) for their article against the Indian Army.

    THIS IS NOT DEMOCRATIC APPROACH RSS, SANGH PARIVAR and bjp. IF YOU HAVE ANY CLARIFICATION, YOU CAN QUESTION AND GET SOLVED AT THE SPOT. WE KNOW HOW TO RETALIATE, BUT THE REPERCUSSION WILL BE COMPREHENSIVE LOSS TO YOUR GROUP. THIS IS 21ST CENTURRY, WHY YOU BEHAVE AS STONE AGE TRADITIONISTS. THE BRUTAL ARROGANCE ACTION OF RSS IS NOT COMRDE YECHURY’S ISSUE BUT OF ENTIRE WORLD COMMUNISTS MATTER.

          Yechury is a Brahmana by caste. But he doesn't possess the quality of 'Brahma'. Those Brahmanas, who doesn't have 'Brahma' guna(quality) are against the Sanatan Hindu Dharm. They are to removed from Planet Earth.

                How many poor people and farmers have been tortured during your regime in West Bengal and now in Kerala? Do you have the figures? You people only play politics whenever there are riots. Now you do not have any work and all the opposition parties are unemplo . So to secure employment, these parties are sending their goons to instigate riots when needy persons are on dharana. Shame Yechuri and Karat. First go and set right the money laundering case of your supporter NDTV.

                  You ideological leader Joseph Goebbels said that to repeat lies 100 times to turn it into truth, right? Go ahead Sanghis, but for how long? The easy way to escape from political drama is to manhandle the opponents, good choice, but again how long?

                  What is the loco standi of Communist. They are sidelined party in our country. They have ruined Kerala & West Bengal. Kerala was known as Gods own country. Now only demons are there. Bengal was brain of India but now drain of India. My dear countrymen shun these anti nationals if we want to prosper. Spend and earn is their policy and our policy should be earn and spend. Hate these people.
