Lucknow: Once considered as close aide of BSP supremo Mayawati, former Family Welfare Minister Babu Singh Kushwaha will have to go through Lokayukta probe for misusing his ministerial position and emulating fake names for amassing massive wealth.

Kushwaha was recently expelled from the party following NRHM scam and is already under Lokayukta scanner for graft complaints filed by Arvind Kumar Soni, a resident of Jhansi.

At a time when the Lokayukta is investigating the case, another complaint filed by Shiv Poojan Singh Kachwaha, Arun Dev Diwedi and Kuldeep Singh has posed problems for the former Minister.
   
Lokayukta NK Mehrotra informed that new allegations have been imposed on Kushwaha. According to 1000 page document submitted by the complainant, Kushwaha has purchased properties by using fake name Ram Charan Kushwaha. More so, he has amassed uncalculated wealth on his wife Sukanya’s false name Shivkanya Devi.

Kushwaha, who was the then Mining Minister, allotted mining lands to his family members in Banda-Mahoba, Chitrakoot-Hamirpur districts. Also, crores of blackmoney has been pumped into Ms Sreenath Properties in Banda and Bhagwat Prasad Kushwaha Educational Welfare Trust.
