Sitaram Yechury: Battle Between Gandhi & Godse after Bid to Manhandle Him Failed

New Delhi: A group of four people tried to manhandle CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury at the AK Gopalan
Bhavan, the party headquarters of the CPM in the capital.  Speaking to Sabrangindia hours after the incident, Yechury said this is an all out war..Between the Land of Gandhi and the Land of Godse."

The press conference was sought to be disrupted as the assaulters had slipped in as if they were journalists. Despite the disruption, it went on as scheduled. "We will not be cowed down by any attempts of Sangh's goondagardi to silence us. This is a battle for the soul of India, which we will win," the CPI(M) general secretary said in response.

One of the two protesters who tried to manhandle him was later caught and handed over to the police. The men shouted slogans of 'Hindu Sena zindabad' and 'CPI(M) murdabad' and were said to be from the Hindu Sena.

The Delhi Police had also deployed heavy security in view of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan's presence at the meeting.

Vijayan has been facing flak from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) over his criticism of the Centre's recent notification relating to cattle slaughter.
