A video tweeted by a Hindi news channel, ABP News, has gone viral on social media platforms in which pro-Pakistan slogans were allegedly raised by the Samajwadi Party workers during a rally in Agra.
The rally was a part of the state-wide protests organised by the SP against rising fuel prices.
In the video, a man in a red shirt can be heard raising ‘Pakistan zindabad!’ slogans. However, the person has denied the accusations and claimed that he only raised slogans in support of Mulayam Singh, Akhilesh Yadav and the Samajwadi Party.
SP's Agra district president Wajid Nisar admitted that pro-Pakistan slogans were certainly raised during the rally, but claimed that some ‘outsiders had raised these slogans to tarnish the party's image’.
Nisar said he had filed a complaint with the police and urged strict legal action against the culprits.
Uttar Pradesh police has taken cognisance of the incident and has initiated a probe.
