Mean while H.Raja who deleted his FB post regarding Periyar Statue, on Wednesday claimed that it was done by the admin who was managing the page.
"Since I was travelling to Delhi, as soon as I landed, I instructed to remove the post and also I removed the admin. We have ideological differences with Periyar but we don't believe in desecration of statues. I don't approve the violent incidents that happened in both the sides. And also I have no intention of insulting anyone's feelings" he said.
