Postby admin » Wed Mar 17, 2010 2:08 am


The Income Tax department will probe the source of funding and ownership of the money for the garland made of currency notes presented to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati at a rally in Lucknow.

The department will check the source of the money estimated to be between Rs 10 to Rs 20 crore, sources said.

The probe will be carried out by the IT department in Lucknow as the venue of the function where Mayawati was presented the garland falls under the jurisdiction of the said directorate.

Sources said the I-T department will probe the origin of the Rs 1,000 notes, the bank they have been sourced from and the bank account holder/holder's identity.

The department has also asked its intelligence wing to gather information in this regard including the funding of the entire event that took place to celebrate Bahujan Samaj Party's (BSP) anniversary.

In a veiled attack against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today said:

"Country's wealth should be used for the welfare of Dalits and the poor and should not be used for making garlands for decorating materialist politicians."
