Welcoming the role of judiciary against construction of memorials and parks in Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party on Monday wondered why state Governor BL Joshi has maintained a silence over the issue.

"While the judiciary has taken a stand on the anti-people policies being pursued by the state government through its ongoing construction spree, the Raj Bhawan is totally mum over it," Samajwadi Party spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary in Lucknow said on Monday.

"Last week we had submitted a memorandum to the Governor seeking his mediation on the unconstitutional functioning of the Mayawati government and had expected him to send his report to the Centre in compliance with his Constitutional obligations but to no avail," Chaudhary said.

The government has been misusing public money on unproductive things while the growth rate which stood at six per cent during the previous government has dived to two per cent, Chaudhary said alleging that funds were being misused in fulfilling the personal ambitions of the Chief Minister.
