RSS leader announces Rs 1 crore bounty for Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan’s head

A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader and the body's Madhya Pradesh spokesperson, Kundan Chandrawat, created a stir on Thursday after he announced a bounty of Rs one crore on Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s head.

According to an India Today report, Chandrawat, speaking at an event in Ujjain, accused Vijayan of the murders of several RSS members in Kerala and said he should be held accountable for the same.

Chandrawat said that he would finance the bounty for Vijayan's head by any means necessary, including selling his own property.

According to a report on ABP Live, the RSS spokesperson's controversial statement created a massive row during a protest organised by the Sangh in Kerala's Shaheed Park, where Ujjain MP Chintaman Malviya, BJP MLA Mohan Yadav and several other RSS leaders were present.

Kerala had recently witnessed a spurt of politically-motivated murders, with RSS, Bharatiya Janata Party and Communist Party of India (M) members all being accused of the killings.

Responding to Chandrawat's comments, CPM released a statement in a Facebook post condemning the leader:

The frustration of the RSS is coming out in open. CPI(M) condemns it and demands quick action. Will the BJP led state 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.
