Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha and one of the seniormost Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge has said that he has been receiving threat calls for months.
Speaking to National Herald over the phone, Kharge said, 'I have brought this matter to the notice of the Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan and union home minister, Rajnath Singh also.'

Claiming to be in a meeting, he cut the call.
