Tirunelvelli (Tamil Nadu) [India], Jan 22 (ANI): A statue of Valdimir Lenin, a Russian revolutionary and political thinker,
was inaugurated here on Tuesday at CPM party office.

"He was great leader and emancipator who is an inspiration for all," said Sitram Yechury.

"First we have to save India and then we have to change India," he said. (ANI)
