Social activist and National RTI Forum convener Nutan Thakur has filed a PIL in the Allahabad High Court, Lucknow Bench on the way statues of living political leaders are being installed on public land at the expense of the public exchequer.

The petitioner has prayed before the High Court to direct the Centre and the UP government to ensure no such statues of living persons are installed at public place at public expense. She said it was only because of this reason that the Election Commission had issued an order for covering the statues of Mayawati put up in public places at government expense.

Old food scam may haunt Akhilesh govt

Ahead of Akhilesh Yadav taking the reign of Uttar Pradesh following the startling debacle of Mayawati controlled BSP government in the recent polls, Uttar Pradesh government is already caught in the web of old food scam.

On his law suit, the Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notices to CBI, UP government and the Centre among others seeking their responseto why the probe shouldn’t be allowed.
