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

By Super Admin

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 currency notes.

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)
