Last updated on: March 15, 2010 21:12 IST
Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati [ Images ] had the most
pleasant surprise in store for her when her party workers from
Karnataka [ Images ] garlanded her with a special garland believed to
be made of currency notes worth Rs. 5 crore.
In fact, none noticed the Rs. 1000 rupees currency notes with which
the huge garland was created until these became visible in some shots
by some local photographers. "We notices the notes when we zoomed in
for our shots", said the photographer, covering the event.
Earlier, while Mayawati was being garlanded, mediapersons could see
from a distance that it was not a run-of-the mill garland, beholders
initially thought the garland was made of exotic flowers. However, the
mystery was unraveled when TV channels covering the event beamed
pictures of the garland.
Those present on the dais, however feigned ignorance about the unique
garland in which some 50,000 currency notes of 1000 rupee denomination
were believed to have been used.
The garland was specially crafted and brought by Mayawati's party
functionaries all the way from Bengaluru [ Images ] for Monday's mega
rally organized by her to mark the ruling party's silver jubilee
celebrations which coincided with the 76th birth anniversary of party
founder and her political mentor, Kanshi Ram.
