Lucknow, Terming appointments of ‘Lok Kalyan Mitra’ by Yogi Adityanath government a ‘waste of tax payers money’, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati said here on Saturday that despite spending crores of rupees in promoting government schemes, the public was not aware of it, reflecting the failure of the state government.
In a statement released here, Ms Mayawati said that appointment of ‘Lok Kalyan Mitra’ proves that the BJP has lost faith in his party cadre. It was a failure of the government that in spite of wasting huge funds, the needy and unprivileged were not aware of the government’s schemes and were deprived of its benefits.
Ms Mayawati alleged that the appointment of ‘Lok Kalyan Mitra’ with remuneration of Rs 25,000 per month and Rs 5,000 travel allowances will not help in development. The state should not confuse public with only inaugurations but should allocate appropriate budget for development schemes to make it reality.
Besides, the BSP president alleged that the decision of appointments of ‘Lok Kalyan Mitra’ also reveals that public do not want to hear BJP top leadership. Hundreds of vacant government posts should be filled to provide employment to educated and competent youth of the state rather than wasting money on such arrangements to promote government’s scheme.
