Lucknow: Expelled Samajwadi Party leader
and Lok Manch founder Amar Singh Thursday said that he has been threatened against taking out his yatra for a separate Purvanchal state on December 1.

"I received a phone call this afternoon warning me against taking out the 450-km yatra from Allahabad to
Gorakhpur," Singh told reporters here.

"Citing the incident of black flags shown to Congress
president Sonia Gandhi in Allahabad today, the caller warned
me to think twice before going there and warned that not a
single word of mine would be tolerated," Singh claimed.
Singh said that he had earlier, too, received a threat
call and had apprised the Prime Minister and the Union home
secretary about the same.
