The Samajwadi Party on Monday said that even if the Finance Commission agrees to help the Uttar Pradesh government by releasing funds to undertake various developmental activities, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati would again use it in installing statues.

Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, state SP president Akhilesh Yadav said, “The Bahujan Samaj Party government in the state is not utilising money meant for development activities. Even if the Finance Commission team, which will be on a two-day visit to the state releases money, it would again be diverted in installing statues of Mayawati, which SP did not want.”

Demanding an account of utilisation of money released by Central agencies, Yadav said that Mayawati government should first tell people, where all the Centre funds meant for development had gone.

“If she (Mayawati) gets the money, she will spend it on stones and we could only hold agitations against the move,” Yadav said accusing the state government of diverting funds of non-productive works like construction of parks and installation of statues.
