Mayawati
Lucknow, Oct 20: Opposition Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday demanded a CBI probe into the "deal" between a real estate group, which is organising Formula 1 event in Greater Noida, and the Mayawati government.

"The JP group has been given cheap land of farmers and also given entertainment tax exemption by Mayawati. A CBI probe should be initiated to ascertain partnership of the group with the CM," party spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said.

The allegations came a day after Supreme Court sought explanation from the Uttar Pradesh government for granting tax exemption to the Jaypee Group for organising the sporting event in the state.

Defending the tax exemption, Sameer Gaur, MD and CEO Jaypee Sports International, has said it "was given to us by the UP state government since Formula 1 is an entertainment industry."
