After recent poll debacle, Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav has found himself on the wrong side of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government with hus bungalow in Etawah being raided by the state power department.
The team upon arriving at his residence found that the permissible limit of 5 kW a day was being busted by as many as eight times. He has been given a time period till the end of the month to pay up.
The Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch’s sprawling residence in the Civil Lines area of his constituency Etawah is one of the biggest in the city with more than a dozen rooms, its own air-conditioning plant, a temperature-controlled swimming pool and several elevators.
Officials had changed the configurations to allow him 40 kW against a payment in lieu of the additional power supply.
A fine of Rs 4 lakh has been imposed on Yadav. Yadav has been given time till the end of the month to pay the fine. This comes after Adityanath made it clear that the primary focus of his administration would be curtailing the corruption.
