A case was slapped on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) youth wing leader, Yogesh Varshney, who declared  a reward of Rs 11 lakhs for beheading West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee. Reportedly, a complaint was filed by Aligarh district Trinamool Congress President Ramphool Upadhyaya.

The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader triggered huge controversy with an announcement of a reward of Rs.11 lakh for West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s head in a video. The announcement was made following an alleged lathicharge at Birbhum district to scatter a rally raising slogans of “Jai Sri Ram” on Hanuman Jayanti.

His video created a countrywide furore, with parliament slamming the leader on Wednesday. The party leaders cutting across party lines sought severe action against Varshney. The BJP also distanced itself from the controversy.

“Those who will cut and bring West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee head, I will give that person Rs.11 lakh. Mamata Banerjee never allows Saraswati Puja, fairs during Ram Navami and during Hanuman Jayanti procession, people were lathi charged and brutally beaten up. She organizes Iftar party and always supports Muslims,” BJYM leader Varshney had said.

Reportedly, in West Bengal’s Birbhum, Suri police warned the Bir Hanuman Jayanti organizers not to hold any rally or meeting at Suri on Tuesday. However, the organizers requested and assured the police that that they would not bring arms. But then, the police did not change its stand and charged on.
