Lucknow: President of the Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia) Shivpal Singh Yadav met Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on Sunday and expressed his concern over the “large and unlawful” gathering of people in Ayodhya. Emerging out of the meeting, the former state Minister said it was a matter of grave concern that despite prohibitory orders lakhs of people were allowed and even facilitated by the state government to gather in the temple town. He added that this was an attempt by some forces to stoke communal passions that posed a danger to the state’s harmony as well as that of the nation’s.
Shivpal Yadav, who is the younger brother of Samajwadi Party (SP) patron Mulayam Singh Yadav, also questioned the silence of the Yogi Adityanath government on the ‘Dharma Sabha’ being held in Ayodhya by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Sunday. (IANS)
