Jaipur, Nov 7(UNI) Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav today said he did not endorse the threat reportedly given by a party legislator to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray.
Talking to reporters here, Mr Yadav said he did not favour this sort of modus operandi in a democratic set up like theirs.
He said the SP leader, also a sitting MLA from Uttar Pradesh, should not have made such a statement against Mr Thackeray.
Reacting on the filing of a case against himself and party General Secretary Amar Singh in connection with the reported threat to the MNS Chief, Mr Yadav said he was not aware of such case but if the court summoned him he would submit due reply before the court.
Mr Yadav was in the town to attend the party workers' meet.
Sitting MLA from Sriganganagar Surendra Singh Rathore had joined the Samajwadi Party at the meet, party state president Pundit Ram Kishan said.
Mr Rathore had earlier won the Assembly election in 2003 on a BJP ticket but later was expelled from the saffron party for his rebellion gestures.
