Madurai: Janata Party President Subramanian
Swamy on Sunday alleged that the party`s candidate for Madurai
Central for the April 13 state assembly polls has been
receiving threat calls and demanded that police provide
adequate protection to him.

Speaking to reporters in Madurai, he said the candidate
Santharam had complained to him and State unit president VS
Chandralekha about receiving the calls on his cellphone.

"Police should act promptly to trace these calls," he

Chandralekha said Santha Ram had first told his party
colleague and another candidate Sasi about the calls. What was
strange was that incoming numbers were not displayed, but
merely said `answer.`

Santharam said he had told one of the callers he was
contesting on the party high command`s orders and he could do
nothing about it.
