New Delhi: Slamming Bhagwan Singh Chohan for placing a bounty of Rs 1 crore on yoga guru Baba Ramdev`s head, Congress leader Rashid Alvi on Tuesday said the BSP Hoshiarpur Lok Sabha candidate should be sent to a mental hospital for saying this.
On Sunday, Chohan said: "I am ready to pay Rs 1 crore to the person who will bring his (Ramdev) head to me."
The BSP leader had also burnt the yoga guru`s effigy near Hoshiarpur bus stand for his alleged anti-Dalit remarks targeting Rahul Gandhi.
Chohan on Monday 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.
