Devnani had on Friday said, “I had asked the Akbar fort in Ajmer to be renamed as Ajmer fort. Since I am a patriot, I have sought changes in names that have reference to terrorists.”
On the alleged threat letter sent to him, the minister said, “Besides that (the Akbar fort renaming issue), several issues are raised in Ajmer about which I have a nationalistic perspective. Perhaps that is why somebody wrote me that kind of a letter.”
