Mayawati is not a Dalit daughter, but the daughter of wealth: Congress

Lucknow, Mar 16 (ANI): Congress leader Digvijay Singh has accused
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati of misusing public money, and
said she is not the daughter of a Dalit, but the daughter of wealth.
The giant garland, used to honour Mayawati during the Bahujan Samaj
Party's silver jubilee celebrations on Monday led to a new
controversy, as it was alleged to have been made of Rs.1,000 Indian
Congress leaders have questioned the source from where the money had come.
Further criticizing Mayawati, Singh said she should be charged and
investigated for money laundering.
The Samajwadi Party and the Congress both have demanded a Central
Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the matter.
Congress leader Akhilesh Pratap Singh said, " Mayawati loves money.
Therefore she only wants people to give her money."
"It's a scandalous show of money power," said Congress spokesperson
Manish Tewari, adding that it is the same Chief Minister, who had
earlier said the State Government did not have appropriate funds to
compensate the Pratapgarh stampede victims.
The multi-crore garland was just a small part of the extravagant Rs
200 crore celebrations that marked the BSP's 25th anniversary, and its
founder Kanshi Ram's birthday, with a massive rally in Lucknow. (ANI)
