''There are lots of questions about timing of many such decisions which are prompted as the UP assembly polls are nearing,'' she said while pointing out the hike in the honorarium of gram pradhans and distribution of utencils as some of the dubious decisions.
The Bahujan Samaj Party President said that many such 'financial; decisions would be subjected to investigation if BSP came to pwoer in Uttar Pradesh. Such gimmicks were being taken to divert the people's attention from the failed law and order and lack of people-oriented development, she added.
