Speaking at a function to present Yash Bharti award in Lucknow on Monday, Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stay cautious of China, calling it “the most unreliable neighbouring country”. He claimed Chinese troops were erecting tents in Indian territory while their Premier (Li Keqiang) is shaking hands with Indian PM.

“China has betrayed India in the past. Even Nehru welcomed Zhou Enlai but the latter attacked us upon returning. Nehru died from the setback. This time, too, Chinese Premier came and when he returned, we hear they are pitching tents in our territory,” Mulayam claimed while speaking at the function. He also said that similar welcome was given to US President Barack Obama who also attacked us after reaching USA over religious discrimination.

Mulayam also said that Modi will get support form every one on the issue of safety and security of the country. “All political parties and the public will stand united but those who are running the country must first take the initiative.”

After the awards had been distributed, Mulayam reflected that no one in the Lok Geet (folk songs) category has been given the award. “Lok geet represents real India. I told the CM (Akhilesh Yadav) about it and he has said that it will be done.”

The CM, while lauding the achievements of the reciepients, said that some artists and sportspersons are known at regional level and they have been selected so that their achievement becomes known to everyone. “We have lots of challenges. If UP has the largest population, then we have the responsibility to give them jobs. The state can progress only if it continues to follow socialist policies,” Akhilesh said.

Among the 56 recipients of Yash Bharti award include Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Jimmy Shergill, Ravindra Jain, Kailash Kher, lyricist Sameer, Anoop Jalota, Rajan-Sajan Mishra of Varanasi, Shubha Mudgal, Jagadguru Swami Bhadracharya, wrestler Alka Tomar, weight lifter Poonam Yadav, Yogendra Singh Yadav (Paramvir Chakra receipient) and Bekal Utsahi.

The award carries cash prize of Rs 11 lakh, citation and a shawl.
