RSS bounty on Kerala CM's head draws flak

RSS leader Kundan Chandrawat’s announcement of a bounty of Rs 1 crore on Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s head was widely condemned in Kerala.

The announcement in Ujjain on Thursday drew huge backlash as Vijayan’s supporters flooded Chandrawat’s Facebook page with a generous dose of abusive words, mostly in Malayalam.

Threat dismissed

Vijayan, however, chose to dismiss the public threat as given before. “The RSS has beheaded many people. That doesn’t mean I can’t travel anywhere. I dismiss this call to kill with contempt,” the chief minister said.

Leader of the Opposition in the Kerala Legislative Assembly Ramesh Chennithala and Minister for Agriculture V S Sunil Kumar, among others, urged Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to order the arrest of the RSS’ Ujjain mahanagar prachar pramukh.
