THIRUVANANTHPAURAM: Nearly a week after an RTI activist filed a plea seeking to know what documents Prime Minister Modi furnished to prove his citizenship, he has been facing bouquets and brickbats from various quarters.

Joshy Kalluveettil, a resident of Thrissur filed the query on January 13 before Chalakudy Municipality in Thrissur. Since then his phone has not stopped ringing.
