Mr Yadav was conferred the Padma Vibhushan, the nation’s second highest civilian honour, posthumously on Wednesday.
Reacting to the award, Samajwadi Get together MLA SP Maurya tweeted in Hindi, “By giving Padma Vibhushan posthumously to Netaji Shri Mulayam Singh Yadav, the Authorities of India has made a mockery of Netaji’s stature, work and contributions to the nation. If Netaji needed to be revered then he ought to have been honoured with Bharat Ratna.”
Comparable views have been expressed by social gathering spokesperson IP Singh.
“Besides the Bharat Ratna, the best civilian honour, no different honour befits the son of the soil, Late Mulayam Singh Yadav. An announcement ought to be made to present Bharat Ratna to our revered Netaji with none delay,” Mr Singh tweeted.
