He also assured that the party will work together and mark their victory in the upcoming state elections.

"We will all unitedly work towards turning the resolution of Mulayam Singh ji of making the Samajwadi Party mark its victory with majority true," he said.

"I wish the upcoming elections see victory of secular forces over the communal ones," he added.
