RSS leader announces Rs 1 crore bounty for Kerala CM's head
A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader from Madhya Pradesh has held Kerala Chief Pinarayi Vijayan responsible for the killing of its members in the state and has announced a reward of Rs 1 crore for his head, according to a report in Indian Today.
Kundan Chandrawat, the RSS Pramukh in Ujjain, said he would even sell his property if he has to give the reward for Vijayan's head. The remarks were made at an event in Ujjain.
Kerala has always witnessed political murders, where the RSS-BJP and the CPM have lost several of their cadres. Last month, the death of BJP leader Santhosh was the eighth murder to have taken place after the Vijayan government took over in May, 2016.
Last week, Vijayan had said right-wing organisations, including the RSS, have been trying to divide the country for the last several years. "The RSS has adopted the organisational structure of Mussolini and the ideology of Hitler. The two dictators had terrorised the world," he had said.Meanwhile, the CPI-M said,"The frustration of RSS is coming out in the open. CPI-M condemns it and demands quick action.
"Will the BJP-led government in the state and at the Centre take any action against them? Will they come out and condemn it?
"If no, then it is clear which ideology they are propagating and whose government it is," the party said.
Vijayan said Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse, was a 'weapon in the hands of the RSS'. The assassination was the result of a conspiracy, he had alleged.
"In India, the RSS has now identified Muslims, Christians and Communists as their internal enemies and were carrying out attacks to eliminate them," Vijayan had said.
