Thiruvananthapuram: CPI(M) MP MB Rajesh on Wednesday claimed that he had received threats and abusive calls after he came out in support of JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who was arrested on sedition charges.
In a Facebook post, Rajesh criticised the BJP and Sangh Parivar for the arrest and had also questioned the alliance of PDP-BJP in Jammu and Kashmir.
He had also sought answers for 10 questions from the BJP.
Rajesh said he had first got a call from a person at midnight yesterday stating that he wanted to talk something important to him. The caller, identifying himself as Biju, wanted to know why he was "supporting anti-national and Pakistani forces".
Though he discontinued the conversation and switched off his mobile, the man called him repeatedly on his landline also. He said the caller had been identified and he would file a police complaint soon.
