For The Love Of Maya

  • A neighbouring building has been demolished to make way for Mayawati’s mansion on a sprawling 1 lakh sq ft
  • The UP government is spending Rs 42 crore on the “ex-CM’s house”
  • Made of granite and pink Dholpur stone, it’ll have an 18-ft statue of hers

***

The UP government’s policy of endowing all former chief ministers with plum accommodation in Lucknow has been stretched too far by Mayawati. While predecessor Mulayam Singh Yadav too was indulgent on his abode out of office, Maya Memsaab has clearly outdone him.
