MLA from Sanjari Balod Assembly Bhaiyaram Sinha has received a threatening letter from some anti-social elements. Since the letter was addressed by Lal Salam, therefore, it is apprehended that the letter might have been written by the Maoists.

As soon as the letter was received, MLA Bhaiyaram Sinha informed the Balod SP. The MLA Sinha received the letter through post on Friday noon.

Sender’s name was Lal Salam which is the slogan of Naxalites. The letter sent the police officials into tizzy. The outlaws have given 15 days time to MLA to get the roads repaired in 15 days time in Gurur region. The extremists have also termed bonus distribution as fake. Naxalites have criticised the BJP and Congress. Lal Salam is a term which denotes Naxalites. The Gurur region in Balod district is the home district of MLA.
