BSP chief Mayawati has to pay back the public money spent on statues: Supreme Court

The Court was hearing a petition filed by an advocate who had contended that public money cannot be used for creating own statues and for propagating political ideologies.

The Supreme Court on Friday observed that prima facie the BSP chief has to pay back all the public money she used to erect status of herself and the BSP symbol, the elephant, in Noida and Lucknow when she was the Chief Minister.


Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has said that the court would hear the plea on 2nd April.
