He was commenting on the recent suicide case of Hyderabad University PhD scholar Rohith Vemula.
He said he would pay Rs. 25,000 for submitting video-recording of any corrupt government official.
He also added that a sum of Rs 10 lakh will be rewarded for beating a corrupt official to death.
“If the government is not taking action against bureaucrats and ministers who are looting the poor, then the dalits should shoot the politicians responsible for deaths like that of dalit scholar Rohith Vemula. The dalits should fight against all those who are responsible for Vemula’s death.”
The Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) leader had earlier during a discussion on the Aircel-Maxis deal in Parliament demanded that corrupt politicians and bureaucrats should be hanged as punishment for indulging in corruption.
