We will petition all the stakeholders in the government regarding threats issued to Pracha,” he added. Kul Jamati Tanzeem President Anjum Inamdar said that the protests against fascist threats to the constitution of the country by underworld elements will continue and legal action would be taken to ensure justice prevails. Meanwhile, BMP has lodged a complaint against the policemen for manhandling Patil and women party workers.
