She additionally said, the parks have been an enormous tourist draw and a revenue-earner.

Party assets additionally defended use of elephants, the BSP symbol, in parks and memorials, announcing those have their trunks pointing down whilst the ones in parks have their trunks up and must no longer be construed as birthday party propaganda.

Taking to Twitter to specific her reaction to the courtroom order, Mayawati said: “Sthals/memorials/parks built to honour hitherto unnoticed sants, gurus and great males born in oppressed Dalit and OBC households. These supply identification and common source of revenue to the federal government from tourism.” She emphasised that it was an “oral statement” of courtroom and must no longer be distorted. “Sure to get justice in this matter. Media and BJP leaders please stop kite flying,” she said.

Going by the “tentative view” of apex courtroom, Mayawati will have to cough up a number of crores of rupees spent on parks and memorials she built in Lucknow and one in Noida when she was CM.
