His elder brother Raj Narayan Yadav said that government must give 'full freedom' to the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

"If they kill one of our soldier's then we must kill their 50 in response. The government has not given full freedom to forces," said Raj Narayan Yadav. "Unless full freedom is provided we would not be able to give a befitting reply to Pakistan," he added.

"10 to 12 of our soldiers are killed daily at borders. I retired from the Health Department but I would like to go and give my services in the Army so that I may take revenge and protect my nation," said Yadav.
