West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi has condemned the vandalising of a bust of 19th century Bengali icon Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar at a college in Kolkata and said the culprits should be traced and punished. 

In a statement today, the Governor said, a new bust of the great social reformer of Bengal should immediately be installed and the Calcutta University should take initiative to it.

Kolkata witnessed wide-spread violence during BJP president Amit Shah's roadshow yesterday.

During the violence, a bust of Vidyasagar was vandalised at the college named after the social reformer. 


Mr Tripathi is also the chancellor of the Calcutta University to which the Vidyasagar College is affiliated.
