UP Construction Site
Uttar Pradesh, Sep 12: Following the Supreme Court's order to stop memorial constructions, the sites witnessed a complete halt of activities with the machines being silent and the workers idling away.

"After the SC directive, all machines were quickly pulled back and the construction work stopped by 7 PM yesterday itself. The sites have been cordoned off," said a state government official.

The apex court ordered the Mayawati government to stop further construction, repair and maintenance activities at the memorials for Kanshi Ram, B R Ambedkar and others in Lucknow.

It had told the UP government 'you are playing with fire' and warned it not to violate the orders.
