Justice after nine years, says Mayawati
"I welcome the Supreme Court decision and I would like to pay my thanks to honourable Supreme Court for showing faith in us and giving the right decision... It was justice after nine years," Mayawati told reporters here.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati also thanked her party members that stood by her like a "hard rock" and supported her.
"I wholeheartedly thank all my party members. My party members stood like a hard rock beside me and never left me in any of the circumstances and backed me during this case even after facing lots of ups and downs since 9-10 years," she said.
The Supreme Court Friday quashed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against Mayawati in a corruption case stemming from the Taj Corridor case and related to amassing assets disproportionate to her income.
