Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Wednesday said there was a deliberate attempt to create communal tension in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district.

"There was a deliberate attempt to create tension in Uttar Pradesh. We are together trying to fight these evils," said Mulayam Singh, while speaking at a Left-sponsored convention here.

Yadav said attempt must be made to defeat the communal forces. "Now that 17 secular parties are coming together, we will defeat the communal forces," he said.
