Kanpur, Oct 25 (UNI) Samajwadi Party (SP) president Mulayam Singh Yadav today said talks for seat adjustment with Congress for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections were underway, but made it a point that the party would not compromise on the seats of Beni Prasad Verma and Raj Babbar.
Talking to newspersons, Mr Yadav asserted ''the SP is ready to adjust those seats, at which the Congress holds strong position, but at no cost would it compromise at Kaiserganj and Agra, the respective seats of Mr Verma and Mr Babbar.
''Both the leaders must have quitted the SP, but they are still assoicated with the party,'' he added.
Also hitting out at the parties who demand a ban upon the Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), Mr Yadav said a ban should first of all be imposed on Hindu organisation-Bajrang Dal.
The SP leader further reiterated his demand of judicial probe into the Batla House police encounter in New Delhi and a slash in petroleum prices, following a decline in crude oil prices in the international market.
Mr Yadav was in the industrial city to preside a function of releasing a book on the life of former party Rajya Sabha member Harmohan Singh Yadav.
The book was released by Lok Sabha speakar Somnath Chatterjee.
