Samajwadi Party today said doubts should not be raised over the surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) and asserted that they trust the Army’s statement.
“When Army is fighting there with courage and our Jawans are laying down their lives for the country, there should be no doubts. Whatever Army decides or says, we will trust it,” SP state president Shivpal Yadav said.
“SP has a clear view against terrorism. When there was Congress government at the Centre, then Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) told the parliament that he was against terrorism and government should take a strict stand against it. Now when BJP is at the Centre, we have the same stand,” he said.
