BSP Hoshiarpur Lok Sabha candidate Bhagwan Singh Chohan has a placed a bounty of Rs 1 crore on yoga guru Baba Ramdev's head for his alleged "anti-Dalit" remarks.
"I am ready to pay Rs. 1 crore to the person who will bring his (Ramdev) head to me," the BSP leader had yesterday said while burning the Yoga guru's effigy near Hoshiarpur bus stand for his alleged anti-Dalit remarks targeting Rahul Gandhi.
Chohan today said he "stands by his statement on Ramdev."
"What is wrong in my statement. If Ramdev could insult the entire women class, why cannot I give such statement," Chohan said.
Hoshiarpur Deputy Commissioner Tanu Kashyap has directed his administration to take an appropriate action in this regard.
