Mayawati Justifies✔ Her Statues In Top Court:🔊 "Represent Will Of People"

  |   India News

Uttar Pradesh politician Mayawati on Tuesday justified her life-size statues built in Uttar Pradesh with crores in public money when she was Chief Minister, telling the Supreme Court they represent the "will of the people".

Whether the money should have been spent on education or hospitals "is a debatable question and can't be decided by a court," Mayawati said in her affidavit before the Supreme Court.

The top court is hearing a 2009 petition against the profusion of statues of Mayawati, her mentor Kanshi Ram and elephants - her party Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP)'s symbol - built at parks in Lucknow and Noida with taxpayers' money when she was chief minister between 2007 and 2012.
