Maya splits UP in 10 minutes


Share post:


Lucknow: Chief Minister Mayawati on Monday pushed through the resolution to split Uttar Pradesh into four parts in the state Assembly in less than 10 minutes ignoring stiff opposition after which the House was adjourned sine die.

Like in the Assembly, the controversial proposal also got the approval of the Legislative Council by voice vote. The Council was adjourned sine die after it met briefly.

With Assembly elections in UP due to be held before May next, the state Legislature passed by voice vote without any discussion an interim budget for 2012-2013, showing an estimated surplus of Rs 5,604 crore. The vote-on-account of Rs 54,762 crore for the first four months of the next financial year was also passed.

A belligerent Mayawati later rejected the opposition charge that her move was a political gimmick and said it was out of “compulsion” since the Centre was not taking any initiative for easier governance of the country’s most populous state.

The special session of the Assembly which began today was meant to be a two-day affair but it was adjourned sine-die by Speaker Rajbhar amid pandemonium in 10 minutes after approving the Vote on Account and the resolution to split UP.(PTI)
