Condemning the episode, the JD(U), which had been supporting the students, termed the alleged threats to Yechury as an "attack" on the freedom of speech and likened the developments to a "new kind" of Emergency.
"All this (threat calls), we are prepared to face, we are not worried. We are not worried about being labelled as anti-national. We are prepared to face this and we will fight it out," CPI(M) leader Prakash Karat said.
Karat said that the threat calls and the attack on CPI(M) headquarters here were "responses" by right-wing outfits to the Left party's "firm" stand against "assault" on the students' community in JNU and "government-sponsored imposition of Hindutva ideology" on the campuses."So, obviously, those forces are angry with us and this is what they try to do at our office," he added.
