New Delhi [India], Mar. 03 (ANI): Condemning the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) minister's announcement on Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, the Janata Dal (United) (JD (U)) on Friday said the saffron outfit is playing hate politics. "Such a statement given for the Chief Minister elected by the people is condemnable. The RSS is playing hate and vehemence politics. All the political parties should condemn it," JD (U) leader K.C. Tyagi told ANI. Another JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav said the minister should be arrested. "He should be immediately arrested. It is weird to use such a language," Yadav told ANI. RSS leader Kundan Chandrawat yesterday offered Rs. one crore to anyone who would bring Kerala Chief Minister's head. "If anyone beheads the Kerala CM, who is the murderer of RSS activists, and brings his head I will bequeath my property worth more than Rs. one crore to him," he said. However, the right-wing condemned the minister's statement, saying it doesn't subscribe to views advocating violence. "The RSS doesn't subscribe to any views advocating violence and strongly condemn it. Attached statement is loud and clear", said RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya in a statement. (ANI)
