Noida, Jan 9 (ANI): As the deadline for the Election Commission's directive to cover the statues of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati and her party symbol, the 'elephant', erected at parks and other public places across the state in recent years draws near, Noida State Development Authority officials are in a fix as they are yet to receive orders in this regard.
"No letter of permission has been received from the administration. We have not got any letter. We are a construction agency, we are conducting a meeting right now and when we get our orders we will cover all the statues," said Arvind Trivedi, Manager, State Development Authority.
"That is the order of the state government. If they ask us to cover the statues, we will cover them. If they don't want to cover them, we will not wrap them," he added.
Ahead of assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, the Election Commission decided to cover the statues of Chief Minister Mayawati and her party symbol, the 'elephant', erected at parks and other public places across the state in recent years.
Last year, Mayawati had inaugurated the 33-acre park named after B. R. Ambedkar in Noida.
The park was built at a cost of Rs. 650 crores, and has statues of elephants, B. R. Ambedkar, Kanshi Ram and Mayawati. (ANI)
