Chandigarh, Dec 2: Haryana minister Anil Vij, who was recently involved in a spat with a woman IPS officer, today received a 'life threat', but the outspoken BJP leader remained unfazed saying he cared little about such threats.
When mediapersons asked Vij about a person sending him a threatening message on Twitter over his spat with Superintendent of Police (Fatehabad) Sangeeta Kalia, the Minister said he got to know about it through the media only.
"I have learnt about this through the media. ...I don't care about such threats. No threat can stop me from doing what is right," he told reporters.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Ambala Surender Pal Singh said the matter had come to the notice of the police.
"The police would take the required precautionary measures in this regard and Anil Vij would be provided additional security if required," he said.
Meanwhile, in his brief interaction with reporters at Ambala railway station while on his way to Delhi today, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said in Fatehabad, not even a single issue has been neglected including drug mafia.
"Many effective measures are being taken against drug and liquor mafia to save our younger generation from its adverse effects," he added.
Notably, Congress had slammed Anil Vij over transfer of Kalia over a spat between the two.
The minister had on last Thursday stormed out of a meeting of the District Grievances and Public Relations Committee after the police officer refused to follow his order to leave the venue following heated exchanges between them.
