Saugata Roy condemns BJP Youth leader’s bounty on Mamata Banerjee’s head

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Yesterday there was a lathicharge on BJP workers in Birbhum district in West Bengal on the issue of Hanuman Jayanti. Lathicharge was done by the police. After that a BJP youth leader has issued a statement that he would give Rs 11 lakh to anybody who would present him Mamata Banerjee’s head.

Madam, I do not want to raise temperatures further. But, this issue is condemnable because Mamata Banerjee is not only the elected Chief Minister of Bengal and a former Member of this House, she is also one who has come up from the ranks from the grassroots.

So, I take this opportunity to bring this matter to your notice and that of the House and I would ask the government to take all possible actions against such men who create such provocation, especially threatening the beheading of a popular Chief Minister.

Thank you.
