Army, security personnel must be given free hand along borders: Mulayam

Army, security personnel must be given free hand along borders: Mulayam

New Delhi, Jan 3 (UNI) Former Defence Minister and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav

on Wednesday demanded that the Indian army should be given "free hand" to give befitting reply to the enemies along the borders.

Raising the issue of frequent attacks on army and security personnel along the borders, especially in

Jammu and Kashmir, Mr Yadav said during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha that it was "sad" that brave Indian soldiers were being attacked and were facing deaths regularly.

"During my time, we did not allow all this. Even Atal Behari Vajpayee and others have complimented me in this House for our firm stand," he said adding "during our time, we had permitted a free hand to our men to give befitting reply".

He was supported by party colleague Dharmendra Yadav and both the Samajwadi Party leaders insisted that there should be a government response on the same.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, however, said she cannot compel a response from the government during Zero Hour.
