Mayawati’s many addresses

the bsp is the ticket to home

bric_4_1BAHUJAN Samaj Party leader Mayawati has a penchant for properties and solitaires. She started her career from a small house in Inderpuri, Delhi, but today is the owner of a number of properties worth millions of rupees across India. She has three bungalows on the posh Gurudwara Rakabgunj Road in Lutyen’s Delhi—Nos. 12, 14 and 16. She has managed to get the approval of the Urban Development Ministry for merging the three bungalows into one, defying all norms. She was allotted bungalow No. 4 on Gurudwara Rakabgunj Road for her party office and bungalow No. 3 on Tyagraj Marg as the party president of the BSP. The Tyagraj Marg house has recently been given a facelift and one can only admire the new decor. She bought a property which houses the Bahujan Samaj Trust office at 11, Sardar Patel Marg from the famous Sadia Dehlvi. She already has two prominent properties in Connaught Place. Recently, she has bought a beautiful property at 7, Jorbagh. It is located opposite the Safdarjung Madrassa. A 1,100-square-yard bungalow, it has a unique location, given its proximity to the Metro station as well as Safdarjung Airport. It has been learnt that the property was sold for Rs. 150 crore by the owner. Mayawati has put up a board, declaring it a ‘camp office’ of the Bahujan Samaj Party. Now we must wait for a palatial building with big elephant statues outside the gate.
