A video has been doing rounds on social media of Yadav, former Baghpat unit president of SP youth wing, purportedly announcing an award for physically harming the Prime Minister and the BJP president.
Yadav, who is seen daring Modi and Shah to hold a rally in Baghpat in western Uttar Pradesh, has targeted them over the 2002 Gujarat riots and demonetisation.
Yadav had issued a statement on December 7 on a letterhead of SP former district president of youth wing in this regard.
When contacted, Yadav claimed that he had "issued the statement in a fit of rage" and also offered an apology later for the same but electronic media has been ignoring it.
The incumbent Baghpat unit president, Tarajuddin, has meanwhile distanced the party from Yadav's statement.
SP does not approve of Yadav's statement and it needs to be opposed, he said.
