RSS man announces bounty for Pinarayi Vijayans head, gets panned

Kochi: An RSS functionary Thursday sparked an uproar when he announced a Rs one crore bounty for beheading Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, drawing condemnation from the Sangh fountainhead, CPI(M) and Congress.

Kundan Chandravat, Sah Prachar Pramukh of RSS in Madhya Pradeshs Ujjain, announced the reward to avenge the killing of its workers in Kerala, allegedly by CPI-M workers.

"The Kerala Chief Minister is killing our RSS workers who want to take this country forward. I will pay Rs one crore to anyone who beheads him even if I have to sell my house," Chandravat was seen saying in a video, which went viral.

"300 innocent people (belonging to the RSS) have been killed but Kerala Chief Minister has turned a blind eye to it," he claimed at the function.

"Is there no courage in the blood of Hindus? I, Dr Kundan Chandravat announce from this stage that as I have property, the house alone is worth more than Rs one crore and I have the guts. I will transfer it to anybody from Ujjain who beheads him and brings his (Vijayans) head to me," he said in brazen remarks which did not go down well with even the RSS.

The RSS was quick to distance itself from Chandravats remarks.

"The RSS strongly condemns such statements. The Sangh does not believe in violence. But we will continue to protest against attacks on our workers in Kerala in a democratic and peaceful manner," the organisations national Sah Prachar Pramukh (joint chief of publicity) J Nandakumar told PTI in Delhi.

Kumar, who is a top functionary in the RSSs propaganda wing, said he does not know who Chandravat was.
