Tripura withdraws textbook that tags BJP a communal party

The Left Front government in Tripura has decided to withdraw the government school textbook in which the BJP was tagged as a “communal party.”

The Bengali medium political science book for Class XI, in its chapter titled ‘India’s party system’ said one of the important characteristics of India’s party system is the existence of communal parties.

“Muslim League, Hindu Mahasabha and Shiv Sena are among such parties, besides the BJP. Parties like the BJP, though not based on religion, succeeded in capturing power through communalisation of politics,” the textbook said.IANS
