The CBI is learnt to have unearthed Rs 17 crore of disproportionate assets during preliminary investigations into the case against Mulayam and his family members. But, the case file has been gathering dust, ostensibly in the wake of the changing political equations at the Centre.
Rs-2 Lakh Crore food scam happened in between 2001-2005, at that time Mulayam Singh Yadav brother shivpal Yadav was Uttar Pradesh Agriculture Minister.
Mulayam singh yadav had declared properties worth Rs 79,000 in 1977 could have amassed properties worth millions without any known source of income.In December 2005 Chaturvedi’s lawyer, Dinesh Kumar Garg, filed a petition along with some 1,000 pages of documents listing the properties allegedly owned by Yadav and his family.The chief minister of India’s most politicised state has landed in a deep political crisis because of the allegations contained in Chaturvedi’s petition.On March 1, the Supreme Court directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to conduct a preliminary inquiry into the charges leveled by Chaturvedi.The Supreme Court ordered the inquiry after taking into account the response filed by Yadav’s lawyer in a written submission on February 27, 2007.Chaturvedi claimed before the apex court that the value of these properties was worth more than Rs 1 billion.
As a fallout of this case, Yadav admitted in the Supreme Court for the first time that he had two wives. His lesser known second wife Sadhna and their son Pratik live at 5, Vikrmaditya Marg in Lucknow , he claimed in court.Yadav’s first wife Malti Devi died in 2003. Their son Akhilesh Yadav is a Member of Parliament, and is married to Dimple who has ‘no source of income’ but owns properties worth millions of rupees, according to Yadav’s own submission.
Meanwhile the petitioner Vishwanath Chaturvedi, 41, father Mata Prasad was a Congressman.He contest election against BJP on a Congress ticket . In the 1980s, he was a close follower of veteran Congress leader and former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand , N D Tiwari.
But Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati not ordered for any probe because she is also doing the same thing, her assets jumped from Rs 1.35 crore to Rs 52 crore,has 96 properties in her and relatives’ names.
