Former SP youth wing president of Baghpat district, Tarun Deo Yadav, has announced “appropriate reward” for those who would “behead Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah” for creating an “Emergency-like situation” through demonetisation and being “responsible” for the 2002 Godhra riots.

While state SP president Shivpal Yadav had dismissed all district units, including frontal organisations, earlier this month, Tarun made the announcement in a handwritten letter — dated December 7. The letterhead had his name as the Samajwadi Party Yuvjan Sabha district president.

Moreover, in a video that went viral Friday, Tarun is seen challenging both the PM and Shah to enter Baghpat and hold a rally. The video, in which he is seen reading out his letter, was reportedly shot during a youth wing meeting held at the local party office.

In the letter, released on December 7 after Shivpal had dismissed all district units, Tarun said that the common man was facing problems and labourers were not getting their wages due to the demonetisation decision. The SP youth wing would burn effigies of the PM and demonstrate, he added.

Speaking to The Indian Express, he said: “Those who will behead Narendra Modi and Amit Shah will be given appropriate rewards… If you see a person as old as your grandfather waiting in a bank queue, you too will curse Modi. Don’t you agree that it is an Emergency-like situation… this government must go?”

When contacted, SP state spokesperson Mohammad Shahid said the party will initiate action against Tarun. “The party has nothing to do with such statements,” he added. Baghpat SP Ajay Shankar Rai said an FIR will be lodged against him.

Taking a dig at SP, BJP general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak said, “SP is full of such frustrated people. Now, let us see what Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav do with someone who has dared to ask for the Prime Minister’s head.”

              If this news is true, Immediate arrest of the SP leader must be done because he threatened PM of India. Threat to PM of India must be taken extremely serious. These statements made by SP are outrageous and deable

                    Pervert minds with sickening party's at their back would not know what they are talking. Nonetheless elements like these must be booked in the larger interest to protect the Democracies.

                                        Narendra Modi is afraid of having debate in parliament. Common people are slowly realizing how they have been fooled by him in the name of fighting black money and corruption.This is just transfering of wealth from common man to rich and corporates. Only small fish is being caught while the big sharks are not touched

                                          Absolutely maniacal and incriminating appeal . But, off course, a law abiding citizen can move the court to charge Modi with the murder of about one hundred innocent people, due to his poorly planned demonetization.
