Mayawati asks Centre to probe 'moon gift'

State cabinet secretary Shashank Shekhar Singh told newsmen here that a packet had been received through courier at the chief minister’s official residence containing some papers related to gifting a property on the moon.

The copy of all the documents contained in the packet had been forwarded to the Ministry of External Affairs, asking them to take up the matter with the US government since the sender was from the USA, he said.

The CM has no idea about the documents or the sender...it appears to be an act of mischief by someone, he said.

Singh however, was non-committal when asked that the person, who had claimed to have gifted the plot on the moon to Mayawati on her birthday this year, was a BSP leader, Mahendra Singh Sengar and the state government could have contacted him instead of forwarding the matter to the MEA.
