MUMBAI: Attacks and threats won't deter the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers. But, it shows the "fear and anxiety" in the Opposition camp, BJP MP and actor Manoj Tiwari said here on Friday. Tiwari's vehicle was vandalised on Thursday night and he was allegedly threatened not to take part in campaigning for the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls.

"Some people broke the right side mirror of my vehicle and threatened me to stop campaigning in Mumbai or else they shall break my jaw," Tiwari had tweeted on Thursday night.

In another tweet, Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi parliamentary constituency, shared the picture of the threat letter, which read, "Manoj Tiwari, Mumbai mein prachar band karo warna abhi shisha toda hai… aage muh bhi todenge (Manoj Tiwari, stop campaigning in Mumbai or else we shall break your mouth instead of the mirror). You know us."

Referring to the incident at a rally in a western suburb later, Tiwari said, "I am a soldier of the Narendra Modi army. I am not going to be deterred in any way."

The incident took place around 5 pm when Tiwari, the Delhi BJP chief, was about to leave his house in suburban Andheri, said Amarjeet Mishra, general secretary of Mumbai BJP.

An FIR has been registered in connection with the incident, he said, adding that people would teach a lesson on polling day to those who were behind the attack.

Civic polls will be held in Mumbai on February 21.
