दलित युवाओं को मेरा पैगाम है की एक तो वे शिक्षा और बुद्धि में किसी से कम न रहें, दुसरे एशो-आराम में न पड़कर समाज नेतृत्व करें. तीसरे, समाज के प्रति अपनी जिम्मेदारी संभालें तथा समाज को जागृत और संगठित कर उसकी सच्ची सेवा करें. ----- डॉ. भीमराव अम्बेडकर

Mayawati spent Rs 5000 crore on dalit memorials LUCKNOW: The previous Bahujan Samaj Party government led by chief minister Mayawatihad sanctioned more than Rs 5,000 crore for construction of parks and memorials in the name of dalit icons and installation of statues between 2008 to 2012.
The information was given in a written reply in the Uttar Pradesh (UP) legislative council on a question raised by Congress member Naseeb Pathan on year-wise fund allocation for parks and statues between January 2008 to May 2012. The government, however, evaded query on whether the expenditure on dalit memorials "unnecessary" and "obstructed development"" of the state. The government said that since the matter related to expenditure on dalit memorials is subjudice, it will not comment on it.
