The ‘No VIP’ emphasis of Yogi Adityanath’s new government in Uttar Pradesh extended on Thursday to former Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav – one of his homes failed a surprise inspection and was found to be guilty of using way more electricity than allowed.

The delinquent residence is the 77-year-old’s sprawling home in Etawah, his constituency in Uttar Pradesh. Located in the Civil Lines area, the bungalow is one of the biggest in the city with more than a dozen rooms, its own air-conditioning plant, a temperature-controlled swimming pool and several elevators.
Electricity officials visited the house – Mulayam Singh was in Lucknow – and found that the permissible limit of 5 kw a day was being busted by eight times. Mulayam Singh also owes Rs. 4 lakh in unpaid bills for this property.

He has been given till the end of the month to pay up.
Officials changed the configurations to allow him 40 kW – the amount that’s being consumed now – but he will have to pay for the larger allotment.

“We are conducting a drive to stop power theft, check overloading and recover dues,” said Ashutosh Varma, an officer leading the team that conducted the check. Asked why this wasn’t done before, he said, “We did not have 40 kW metres earlier. Now we do.”
