While the Lucknow Development Authority refused to comment, staff in these parks said that they have been closed till the polls are over.
Dedicated to Dalit icons and built at an estimated cost of Rs. 3,500 crore, these parks were thrown open for the public in October, 2011.
While the statues of Mayawati have been covered at all places with ply-boards, giant elephants have been covered with yellow tarpaulin.
The statues of elephants atop pillars were left uncovered at all memorials.
The EC had on Saturday last issued orders to cover all statues of Mayawati and the BSP poll symbol at various parks and memorials in Lucknow and Gautam Buddha Nagar (Noida).
While fixing January 11 as the deadline, the EC had asked the District Electoral Officers-cum-district magistrates of the two places to send a compliance report.
