Members of the CPI(M) and the BJP today indulged in heated exchanges in the Lok Sabha over the alleged death threat issued to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan by an RSS member who was later sacked from the outfit. Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, CPI(M) member P Karunakaran said an RSS functionary from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh had announced a hefty reward for anyone who would come forward to kill the Kerala Chief Minister.

“Is this a government policy to attack chief ministers of other parties,” Karunakaran asked, provoking noisy protests by BJP members. The CPI(M) leader was joined by other opposition members in his attack against the government and to vociferously counter the BJP members.

Parvesh Varma, BJP member from Delhi, alleged that RSS and BJP members were being attacked in Kerala and the Left was resorting to violence in this ideological fight.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar also got up and said something which could not be heard in the din. Raising another issue, Dharamvira Gandhi (AAP) welcomed the government’s move to cap the prices of stents for heart surgeries and said similar caps should be imposed on diagnostic tests also.
