Take steps against violence in Gujarat: CPI
New Delhi, May 3 : Condemning the recent communal violence at Vadodara in Gujarat, the Communist Party of India (CPI) today urged the Centre to take ''effective steps'' to prevent further damage.
The party, in a letter written to the Centre, also regretted the demolition of 300-year-old dargah that provoked communal sentiments, leading to the killing of five people.
CPI general secretary A B Bardhan said the Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) activists, roaming near Muslim localities, are threatening a repeat of the 2002 riots incident.
''Already a car, with one person inside, has been burnt,'' the letter referred.
