Taj corridor case: HC dismisses petitions against Mayawati


Lucknow:(Page3 News Network)-The Allahabad High Court today dismissed petitions against Bahujan Samaj party chief Ms Mayawati in the Taj Corridor case.
The Lucknow bench of the court also dismissed the petitions against her cabinet colleague Naseemuddin Siddiqui.
Passing the order, the bench comprising justices Imtiyaz Murtaza and Ashwani Kumar Singh said all petitions were devoid of merit and were accordingly being dismissed.
BSP leader and Mayawati's counsel Satish Chandra Mishra termed the petitions filed in the case as politically motivated and pursued with malafide intention.
The bench had on September 12 reserved its judgement on the PILs seeking direction for initiation of proceedings of criminal case against Ms Mayawati and Mr Siddiqui.
The special CBI court had in June 2007 dropped proceedings against Mayawati and Siddiqui for lack of prosecution sanction, which was not granted by the then Governor. 
The Taj corridor project was launched by Ms Mayawati in 2002 to beautify areas adjoining near the Taj Mahal heritage monument in Agra.
