A BJP youth leader has announced a bounty of Rs 11 lakh to anyone who beheads West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Yogesh Varshney of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha made the statement after police clashed with people taking part in a Hanuman Jayanti rally in West Bengal’s Birbhum district.
“She stands up for Muslims. Aren’t Hindus human beings? If there were some humanity, then there wouldn’t be so much discrimination against the Hindus,” he said after apparently seeing a video of police assaulting the rallyists to disperse them.
“There is only one thought that crossed my mind after watching that video… Whoever will cut off Mamata Banerjee’s head, I will give that person Rs 11 lakh as reward,” Varshney said.
Varshney’s Rs 11 lakh offer has gone viral on social media, triggering outrage.
The rallyists carrying saffron flags were stopped by police and Rapid Action Force near Barabagan area, sparking trouble.
