- BJP does not ever practice culture of violence. In places like Tripura, Left parties have chosen to be silent about 11 BJP workers who were killed. Some of those who support Left parties are trying to foist these kind of debates that a statue is removed: Nalin Kohli, BJP

Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (also known as Lenin) was a Russian communist revolutionary, politician and political theorist and served as head of government of Soviet Russia from 1917 to 1924 and of the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1924.
Under Lenin's administration, Russia and then the wider Soviet Union became a one-party communist state governed by the Russian Communist Party. Ideologically a Marxist, he developed political theories known as Leninism.
