Through her twitter account, Mayawati said marvellous memorials and parks built to honour “ignored” gurus and sants born in Dalit and OBC communities are a new grand identity and tourist attractions in the state.
The Bahujan Samaj Party supremo said the party’s viewpoint will be placed before the court.
On Friday, the Supreme Court had said, “We are of the tentative view that Mayawati has to deposit the public money spent on her statues and party symbol to the state exchequer.”
The apex court made the remarks after hearing a petition filed in 2009 by an advocate who had alleged that hundreds of crores of rupees were used from the state budget for stalling her statues and BSP’s symbol at different places when Mayawati was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Speaking on the issue, Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav on Friday came in support of his alliance partner.

Speaking to reporters, Mr. Yadav said “I don’t have full information about this. The court might have made some observations. BSP’s lawyers will put their side in the court”.
The SP and the BSP recently announced their alliance for Uttar Pradesh in the coming Lok Sabha elections, which is being seen as the biggest challenge for the BJP and its alliance.
