Maya spent Rs 4,436 crore on parks, statues: Congress
Headlines Today Bureau
Lucknow, March 23, 2010
A week after her mammoth rally in Lucknow, the Congress has accused
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati of spending Rs 4,436 crore of
public money in building statues and parks.
The party claimed that it has accessed documents of the UP Nirman
Nigam Ltd through an RTI application. The Congress is likely to use
the information to turn the heat on Mayawati, whom it had earlier
accused of squandering public money on grandiose projects.
According to Congress, the state government spent the money during
2007-2009. Mayawati's spending spree on statues and parks has already
drawn flak from Supreme Court which has stayed such projects.
The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief had thumbed her nose at the
Congress last week accepting two huge garlands of cash that the latter
claimed was an outrageous exhibition of greed.
