Siddharth has been voicing his dissent against the BJP government and their governance in handling the Covid-19 pandemic. He has also been at the receiving end of abuse because of his blatant criticism. Recently, Siddharth took to social media to allege that BJP's IT Wing has leaked his phone number. Following this, Siddharth has been receiving death and rape threats. He also received calls from unknown numbers who threatened him. Siddharth submitted the recorded phone calls and screenshots from Facebook to the police.
Thank you @tnpoliceoffl for the protection. I am the first person in my entire family's history to be given the same.— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) April 29, 2021
However, I would politely like to give up this privilege so the same officers' time is better used for something else during this pandemic.
Thank you again.
