SP chief's grand b'day bash bill demanded by BJP

Samajwadi party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's birthday was celebrated in a lavish way by the Uttar Pradesh government and Urban Development Minister Mohd Azam Khan.

The Bharatiya Janata Party demanded bill for the extravagance and pompous shows organised for the birthday in Rampur as well as the Saifai Mahotsav in Yadav's native village in Etawah.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state spokesman Manoj Mishra demanded that the state government and Khan should be asked to foot the bill as there was no rationale involved in public money being used in the shows.

"While Khan said that the funds for the SP chief's birthday bash came from Dawood Ibrahim and Taliban, there were media reports that the state labour department was asked to cough up funds for the celebrations in Rampur in November 2014", Mishra said here.

Several crores of rupees were also spent in the Saifai Mahotsav which earned notoriety for its extravagance.
