Akhilesh Yadav welcomes any move that “strengthens integrity”

Lucknow | In a guarded reaction to the scraping of the 370 of the Constitution, Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav on Monday said he welcomes any move that strengthens country’s integrity, but the decision in a democracy must be made by consensus, not by force.

“Any move that seeks to strengthen the integrity of India is to be welcomed. But in a democracy, decisions must be made by consensus, not by threat, force or fear,” said Yadav in a tweet.

“All parties should be part of talks and due process. Nothing should be unilateral for that only leads to more strife,” he added.
