Parents of Mulayam’s daughter-in-law accused of grabbing land worth Rs 100 crore during Akhilesh regime

In another controversy which has hit the Yadav family in Uttar Pradesh, reports have claimed that parents of Aparna Yadav, who is married to Mulayam Singh Yadav’s younger son Prateek Yadav, had grabbed land worth Rs 100 crore during the erstwhile Akhilesh regime.

According to the report, the mother of Aparna, who is deputy secretary in the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA), fraudulently allocated the land belonging to LDA to Aparna’s father, Arvind Bisht. LDA has reportedly recommended action against 3 of its officials including Ambi Bisht. Arvind Bisht is currently the state information commissioner.

The accusation is that Ambi Bisht had allotted a 12,000 sq ft plot situated at a prime location in Lucknow to her husband Arvind Singh Bisht using forged documents. Ambi allegedly created a duplicate file via forged papers to prove her husband’s ownership.

This was reportedly revealed when the registrar was contacted, after which LDA was informed that there was no such property record. Apart from Ambi Bisht, action has been recommended against then project officer Seema Agrawal and section officer Devendra Lal.

Ambi Bisht has now reportedly denied the allegations and has claimed that the controversy was being created because of political reasons. She has alleged that it was an attempt to malign both the families.

She claimed that the land belonged to a certain Nazrul Trust, from which her husband had leased it for the past several years. The lease incidentally was renewed by her in 2015, when she was looking after the work of leased properties. This step according to her was also approved by senior officials. Then she had reportedly sent a request to the CM’s office to make it a freehold property; that is the owner of the property won’t have any time-limit on the land ownership.

She further claims that they applied to cancel the lease when they found there was encroachment on the land. This cancellation supposedly wasn’t approved and it was in this year May, that they surrendered the lease deed.

A further investigation in this matter has been launched by the Yogi government.

This isn’t the only time Aparna Yadav has been in the news for the wrong reasons. Last month, an RTI query had revealed that 86% of the funds reserved for the NGOs carrying cow welfare activities were granted to an NGO run by her. Reportedly the state government’s Gau Sewa Aayog had sanctioned a total amount of Rs 9.66 crores from 2012-2017 out of which 8.35 crore or about 86.4% were sanctioned to Jeev Ashraya, the NGO of Aparna Yadav.

Aparna though at that time had decided to come up with a simple defence by asking that if some organisation was doing good work, why shouldn’t it be helped out financially.
