Mulayam Singh's six-foot-tall statue was installed at the Samajwadi Party office in UP's Hardoi district without permission and was later removed.

A six-foot-tall statue of late Samajwadi Party (SP) patron Mulayam Singh Yadav installed at the party office here allegedly without prior permission was removed after a notice from the Nagar Palika Parishad, officials said on Tuesday.

Taking note of the statue, the civic body issued a notice to Yadav on September 23 and also pasted it at the entrance of the SP office. According to the notice, the party was given 24 hours to take down the statue, failing which it would face action.

While Yadav refused to comment on the matter, SP district vice president Alaknkar Singh said party members had collected 10 lakh and got the statue made.

"The administration got it removed after pressuring us. After the notice was issued, we took down the statue ourselves on September 23," he said.

Executive Officer, Nagar Palika Parishad, Vinod Kumar Solanki said the SP office was opened by joining eight shops allotted to them by the civic body.

"Without permission, a hall and a room were constructed there. A statue cannot be installed without permission," Solanki said in the notice.

He later said the statue has been removed now.
