AK Antony’s son: Cyberbullying, expulsion threats from Kerala leaders forced Congress exit

Anil K Antony, son of former defence minister AK Antony, alleged he was threatened with “expulsion” by senior Congress leaders of Kerala over his tweet, in which he denounced a BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a conversation with Moneycontrol, the junior Antony said: “There was pressure from office-bearers and senior leaders of Kerala to remove the tweet or I will face expulsion.”

In his tweet on January 24, he said the BBC documentary, ‘India: The Modi Question’, is setting a dangerous precedent and undermines India’s sovereignty.
