Muzzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Oct 9 (ANI): The Samajwadi party on Sunday justified the posters crediting party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for the surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) and said that it was the former, who advised Prime Minister Narendra Modi to target Pakistan.

Shamsher Malik, the district president of Samajwadi Yugjan Sabha, said they are not playing any politics over the sacrifices and valour of the soldiers as the posters were displayed to congratulate the jawans and Mulayam Singh Yadav.

"The poster credits Samajwadi Party supremo Mulyam Singh for the surgical strikes because Mulayam Singh did call Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him to conduct the surgical strikes while stating that the Samajwadi Party is with them in this step," said Malik.

"Mulayam Singh's opinion counts, he has been a former home minister and is considered as a senior person in the Indian politics," he added.

The Samajwadi Party put up hoardings in Muzaffarnagar claiming that Prime Minister Modi ordered the surgical strike only after consulting Mulayam Singh Yadav.

In the hoardings put up at Novelty Chowk in the city, the pictures of Mulayam Singh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Malik can be seen. (ANI)
