LUCKNOW: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday got an open endorsement from the Samajwadi Party for his brief stop over in Pakistan.

Samajwadi Party's national general secretary and Rajya Sabha member Ram Gopal Yadav praised Modi's initiative, saying it was "a praiseworthy gesture".

Pakistan was India's immediate neighbour and hence cannot be wished away, Yadav told reporters in Saifai.

"Open dialogues is the only way forward to a peaceful future," he said.

Modi "has given all the right signals from this visit and has laid out the prospects of a meaningful dialogue in future", the leader said.
