Bharat Patankar is known as secularist voice in Maharashtra and runs Shramik Mukti Dal, an organization working for the poor and deprived. “Earlier, I had received such threatening letter to kill me but i ignored them.
On March 16, I received another letter in which it was the fact that along with the letter, I received an issue of ‘Sanatan Prabhat’. I never received any issue of this magazine earlier. These incidences are telling the story itself,” Patankar said Meanwhile, it is found out that the office of Sanatan Prabhat is closed.
The local police have provided round the clock security to social leader Bharat Patankar after he revealed that he received a threatening letter exactly a month after veteran communist leader and rationalist Govind Pansare was attacked in Kolhapur, and later died.
