New Delhi: Samajwadi Party MP Naresh Agrawal’s office has received a threat call from unknown person/organisation over his controversial remarks in Rajya Sabha.
While speaking during the debate in the Upper House on lynchings in the name of cow, the SP leader on Wednesday linked the names of Hindu gods with alcohol.
The ruling members objected to the comments which Agarwal withdrew and apologised. He had initially refused to apologise to the “contractors of the Hindu religion”.
Narrating an incident which dates back to 1991, Agrawal recalled, when he visited a school that was turned into a jail.
He said the names of some Hindu deities linked to some types of alcohol were written on the wall of the school.
The Samajwadi leader later said if his remarks had hurt the sentiment of anyone he was withdrawing them.
