New Delhi, Feb 8: The Supreme Court on Friday said that Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati has to pay back all the public money spent on statues of herself and elephants, the party’s symbol. 

The remarks were made by the apex court while hearing a plea filed by an advocate seeking direction to restrain her from spending public money on building statues.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi stated “We are of the tentative view that Mayawati has to deposit the public money spent on her statues and party symbol to the state exchequer”.

The bench, also comprising justices Deepka Gupta and Sanjeev Khanna, fixed April 2 for final hearing in the matter.
