The BJP on Tuesday joined issue with CPM for the party’s ‘irresponsible statements’ of blaming Hindutva forces and BJP and RSS for petrol bombs being hurled at its district party office here recently.

“The incident of hurling a bomb at the CPM office, for that matter any party office, is condemnable. But the CPM has blamed Hindutva forces, BJP and RSS without any valid proof. It is not in good taste...the party should have reacted in a responsible manner,” BJP state general secretary Vanathi Srinivasan told reporters here. 

She recalled that during the DMK regime, petrol bombs were hurled at the BJP Headquarters in Chennai and even now many demonstrations are held in front of that office. On June 17, some unidentified persons had hurled a petrol bomb at the CPM office in Coimbatore, drawing strong condemnation from opposition parties. 

CPM had blamed ‘Hindutva’ activists for the attack and claimed it was a “continuation” of the recent attempt to attack party general secretary Sitaram Yechury in Delhi. 

Vanathi lauded the state government for passing the GST Bill and said Minister of State for Commerce and Industry, Nirmala Seetharaman would be on a three-day visit here to highlight various advantages of GST, particularly among traders and industrialists in the state.
