Mayawati writes to Yogi Adityanath to convert her official bungalow into Kanshiram memorial


Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Friday wrote to Uttar Pradesh Chief minister Yogi Adityanath to convert her govt allotted house '13A Mall Avenue' into Kanshiram Vishram Sthal.

In a written a letter to UP CM Yogi Adityanath Mayawati stated that the bungalow was converted to Kanshi Ram memorial in 2011 itself and that Mayawati only occupies 2 rooms in the bungalow.

The controversy over the bungalow erupted after Supreme Court issued an order that all former CMs from UP will have to vacate their bungalows.

The Supreme Court had on May 7 struck down the amendment to the Uttar Pradesh Ministers (Salaries, Allowances and Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1981 to provide for allotment of government residence to former chief ministers at his/her request for lifetime, terming it "unconstitutional".

The Sc had on August 1, 2016 ordered cancellation of allotment of government bungalows to former chief ministers, observing that the allotment of houses made to former chief ministers, private bodies and individuals was bad in law. The Akhilesh Yadav government had in 2016 amended the Act, which was challenged by a Lucknow-based non-profit organisation Lok Prahari.
