Lucknow: Miffed by the incident of firing by the supporters of Minister  Mehboob Ali during his welcome in Amroha on Sunday, Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has cautioned party ministers and workers to abstain from unlawful activities.

He also mentioned that strict action will be taken against the lawbreakers. Meanwhile, 12 unidentified persons have been booked in the incident.

Yadav on the other hand has called for a party meeting on Tuesday to brief the ministers on the matter. He said, “People have chosen us to serve them rather than cause inconvenience”

Answering to a question regarding development in Uttar Pradesh in comparison with Gujarat and Bihar Yadav said, “Samajwadi Party will set an example for others to follow”.

When asked why most of the ministers have been given the same departments which they held in their previous tenure, Yadav sarcastically said, “Tomorrow you will ask me as to why I am chosen the party president every time.”
