Mayawati dares Opposition leaders to declare assets
Demands CBI probe into Mulayam's "benami properties"
LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party
president Mayawati has dared the leaders of Opposition parties to
declare their movable and immovable properties. She also asked them to
declare the source of the properties after they entered politics.
Taking exception to Opposition criticism of her Rs. 88-crore movable
and immovable assets declared by her at the time of filing her
nomination papers for the UP Legislative Council polls this past week,
Ms. Mayawati saw in it a political conspiracy to defame her. She said
before pointing fingers at the property owned by her the Opposition
leaders should introspect.
Targeting Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh, she said Mr. Singh
owned a few bighas of land and a bicycle when he entered politics but
today he and his family members own several properties, including
"benami". Demanding a CBI probe, she said Mr. Singh was sending
feelers to the UPA leaders in a bid to escape the noose.
The Chief Minister lashed out at the UPA and NDA leaders for not
framing a law in Parliament for bringing back black money stashed away
in foreign banks. She demanded that the names of 50 Indians given by
the German Government be made public and strict action be taken
The Chief Minister's views were conveyed to journalists by BSP general
secretary Satish Chandra Mishra. He told reporters here over the
weekend that Ms. Mayawati is only the leader who has declared her
property, both movable and immovable, at each stage. She has regularly
filed her income tax returns and, unlike the tax evaders, is the only
leader who is a regular taxpayer, the BSP MP said.
Mr. Mishra added that Ms. Mayawati's property records are clean and
unlike the other political leaders she has not concealed her wealth by
investing in shares, bonds and debentures. The BSP president has not
taken a single paisa as gift, Mr. Mishra claimed. He claimed that the
valuation of the property increases in accordance with the prevailing
market rate and there was nothing unlawful in it.
