5 Crores Garland for Mayawati.
Sorry for old news, news 15th march 2010 de hai ..par main hon dekhi te sochya j kise hor ne nahe dekhi te dekhi apne politicians da haal
Its really sad to see that the corrupt politicians of our great country India are spending the hard-earned public money like anything. In fact, the current Chiet Minister of Uttar Pradesh Mayawati has so far spent over Rs.20,00,00, 00,000 (Rs. 2,000 crores) in just installing her statues in various street of Uttar Pradesh. Whereas during the recent ashram stampede tragedy, she raised her hands saying that she can't compensate victims of stampede with any ex-gratia as the UP government doesn't have any money and seeked help from central government.
See the below news for another such example:
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati was Monday March 15, 2010 presented a giant garland of currency notes by her fans from Karnataka. Though the exact value of the garland is not known, onlookers put it in the region of a whopping Rs.5 crore!
In fact, no one noticed the Rs.1,000 currency notes with which the giant garland was created until these were identified by a local photographer when he zoomed in.
Earlier, while Mayawati was being garlanded, mediapersons could make out from a distance that it was not a run-of-the-mill garland. But beholders perceived it as one made of some exquisite imported flowers.
However, the mystery was unravelled no sooner than the still pictures were promptly lifted and beamed by TV channels. Those present on the dais, however, feigned ignorance about the unique garland in which some 50,000 currency notes of Rs.1,000 each were believed to have been used.
The garland was specially crafted and brought by Mayawati's party functionaries all the way from Bangalore for Monday's mega rally organised by her to mark the Bahujan Samaj Party's silver jubilee celebrations, which coincided with the 76th birth anniversary of party founder and her political mentor Kanshi Ram.
