Lucknow June26 (ANI):In a hurriedly organised function on Thursday night Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayavati unveiled fifteen projects including Kanshi Ram Memorial, Ambedkar Sthal and her own statue as well, fearing the Supreme Court might order to stay the functions.
The unveiling function were scheduled to be held on July 3, but this surprise move was taken in the wake of public interest litigation filed in the Supreme Court by a Delhi based lawyer Ravi Kant seeking to stop the inauguration. The apex court is hearing the case on 29th of this month.
Speaking after inaugurating the projects Mayavati attacked her opponents alleging that they wanted to block the projects belonging to dalits. She ruled out the allegation of corruption in the projects.
She also defended the inauguration of her own statue saying, it was the wish of the BSP founder Kanshi Ram that, the statue of his political successor should be installed besides his.
Lawyer Ravi Shankar described this hurried inauguration of project by the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, as the first sign of his victory. (ANI)
