Krishna alleged that “troll armies have links with people in power” and described the postponement as an attack on freedom of expression.
But the Delhi government on Thursday reached out to Krishna after his weekend concert in the city was called off by the sponsors.
The Magsaysay Award winner said that he has earlier been accused of being pro-Christian, pro- conversion and an urban Naxal.
“The troll army has the underlying patronage of people in power,” alleged the singer.
