THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In an exceptional death threat issued publicly against Kerala CM, an RSS leader in Ujjain offered a reward of Rs 1 crore to anyone who kills Pinarayi Vijayan. The threat was issued by RSS pramukh of Ujjain Dr. Kundan Chandravat at a public meeting conducted in Ujjain as part of nationwide protests against the killing of Sangh workers in Kerala. While holding the CM Pinarayi Vijayan responsible for the murders, Chandravat stated Pinarayi Vijayan had no right to live in this country. The death threat was issued in the presence of Ujjain MP Chintamani Malviya and local MLA Mohan Yadav. CPM politburo censure the threats being issued by RSS leaders against the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
“The RSS has reconfirmed that it leads the politics of violence and terror as has been clear in Kerala in the recent months,” the politburo stated in a press release and demanded immediate action in accordance with law. CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury stated the RSS had exposed its true colors as a terrorist outfit. Will Prime Minister and his government stop remaining silent? “The silence of the government is a confirmation that encourages the RSS to issue such intolerable heats,” he stated. The video of hate speech went viral on social media sites inviting widespread criticism against the RSS leader. When contacted Madhya Pradesh police chief Rishikumar Shukla stated that he had not gone through the speech yet and would look into the matter. To a question whether the action will be taken against the RSS leader as demanded by the CPM, the DGP stated “let me first look into the matter.”
With the hate speech receiving widespread censure, RSS central leadership was forced to distance itself from Chandravat’s remarks.”The Sangh does not support any form of violence. RSS has nothing to do with Chandravat’s statement. We believe in protesting democratically,” stated National Joint Prachar Pramukh of RSS J Nandakumar. In the meantime, CPM state secretariat called for state-wide protests on Friday to demand the arrest of Chandravat. “This is the first time that a death threat has been issued against the chief minister publicly and that too by a leader related with the ruling party,” the CPM stated.
Excerpts of Chandravat’s statement. “We don’t want to submit the letter but also issue death warrants to these Leftists. The chief minister is blowing hatred against RSS as he is afraid that the Sangh is gaining ground. He is picking and killing our pracharaks. They have killed over 300 RSS workers” he stated. “I Dr. Kudan Chandravat is making this statement from this stage. I have property and that’s why I am making this statement. Go and get me the head of Pinarayi Vijayan, I will give Rs 1 crore. I will give a house and land to him.” He has no right to live in this country. Have you overlooked when 56 were killed in Godhra after that 2000 went to the burial ground. You have killed 300 pracharaks and workers. We will garland Bharat Mata with the heads of 3 lakh Leftists,” he threatened.
