New Delhi:

Adding to the list of parties and individuals who are protesting against the controversy-riddled film Padmavati, the latest to make his presence felt is Suraj Pal Amu, Haryana's BJP Chief Media Coordinator.  

Ridiculing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia, Amu said, “I want to congratulate Meerut youth for announcing Rs 5 crore bounty for beheading Deepika, Bhansali. We will reward the ones beheading them, with Rs 10 crore, and also take care of their family's needs.” 

He also said he will quit BJP if needed, asking PM Modi to exercise his powers to strike down the film. 

He said that the BJP and PM Modi use the Rajput community for votes and to assault Muslims during riots but now they are silent over the issue of Padmavati.   

Issuing a threat to actor Ranveer Singh, who plays the role of Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati, Amu said that he will break Ranveer’s legs. 

On the other hand, in Lucknow, members of Akhand Rashtrawadi Party staged a demonstration against Padmavati adding that they have filed a PIL in Delhi High Court against the film.
