New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party has refused to accept the resignation of its leader Suraj Pal Amu, who had announced  a reward of Rs 10 crore for beheading Deepika Padukone before the release of periodic film ‘Padmaavat’. Amu had resigned from his post of BJP’s chief media coordinator, Haryana, in November 2017. “It is like coming back to my home”, said Suraj Pal Amu, after Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala rejected his resignation on Monday.

“I had resigned from different posts of Bharatiya Janata Party Haryana Unit many months back and today Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala has rejected it. For about 29-30 years I have been at different posts in the party and its student wing. These were very tough 8 months for me to stay away from the party, however, I kept working in different social organisations. It is like a homecoming for me,” Amu told ANI further. (ALSO READ: Suraj Pal Amu, Who Threatened Padmavati Team, Now Wants to ‘Slap Farooq Abdullah at Lal Chowk’)

A graduate of Lucknow University and Maharshi Dayanand University, Suraj Pal Amu came into limelight last year for his controversial remarks on the actors and makers of ‘Padmaavat’. “We will reward the ones beheading them with Rs 10 crore and also take care of their family needs…We know very well how to treat those who insult the Rajput community,” Amu had reportedly said. On November 29, 2017 he had resigned after Haryana unit of the party served a show cause notice to him seeking explanation over his controversial statement.
