BJP leader offers Rs 11 lakh to behead Mamata

A MEMBER of BJP's youth wing is in hot water after threatening Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and offering an INR11 lakh (US$17,000) reward for anyone who "brings me her severed head", according to the New Indian Express.

"Mamata government beat up people ..." He demanded Varshney's immediate arrest.

Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi disowned the comment in Parliament, saying: "I condemn this type of statement".

The announcement by Varshney made on a video triggered such a furore across party lines that even BJP leaders quickly distanced themselves from it. "Don't agree with such remarks, there is anger against Mamataji for her appeasement politics but can't support violence". "There is anger against Mamataji for her appeasement politics, but (we) can not support violence". "We strongly condemn it", he said.

Mamata also stayed away from launching an attack on the Congress, despite the venue of today's meeting being state party chief Adhir Chowdhury's backyard Murshidabad. "You are protecting cows but atrocities being are committed on women", Bachchan told the Rajya Sabha.

"We are against such cheap statements".

"For such people, action can be taken under the law".

Incidentally, the CPI (M) is also part of the joint delegation seeking EVM replacement. "A strong message should go from the government against such behaviour and action must be taken against the guilty", Kharge said. "The incident is barbaric". "Is this something (that) you should be promoting?" she asked while lashing out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP Government at the Centre. I participate in Durga Puja. Who are you to stop me? Mamata attacks BJPCharting a growth plan for her party, Mamata announced her plans to expand TMC's base from a regional one to a national one.

Mr Varshney accused Ms Banerjee's government of targeting Hindu devotees. They can abuse me as much as they want. "Now our aim is Delhi".

"He is a young boy who had said it". Will accept the punishment which the BJP high command decides. Nor is this the first time that some among them have declared bounties on heads of rival party leaders.
