Ousted Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Naseemuddin Siddiqui met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday and demanded Z plus security from the government after getting alleged threat calls.
"He (Yogi Adityanath) assured us that it is his work to give protection to all the people of the state. I am getting many threat calls not just once but many a time. I asked him to provide Z plus security, rest he will decide," Siddiqui said.
Earlier on Friday, Siddiqui hit back at party supremo Mayawati, saying that she is the all time greatest blackmailer the country has ever witnessed.
"She said that I blackmailed her, but there is no greatest blackmailer then her, which is ever witnessed by the country," Siddiqui said in a press briefing here.
He flatly rejected the allegation made by Mayawati, saying that the latter just got furious when he applied the trick of phone tapping on her, which was taught by Mayawati herself.
"I want to ask Mayawati that who was being blackmailed in the audio clip that was released by me yesterday," he said.
"A number of BSP leaders have been tortured. Few were humiliated and were sacked form the party. Who didn't left they were tortured to that extend that themselves left the party," he said.
