"Decision to build a Museum and Ramleela Theme Park in Ayodhya by the and the SP just before the assembly elections shows their intentions," the chief said in a statement.

She also said that these promises would remain unfulfilled due to the lack of the budget.

"Attempts at taking political mileage by linking religion with politics is condemnable. And if their intentions were good, these projects would have started earlier," said.

Mayawati's remarks came after Union Minister of State for Culture and Tourism Mahesh Sharma said he will visit Ayodhya on Tuesday to inspect the proposed Museum.

The cabinet on Monday approved the use of red sand stone at the under-construction Ramleela Theme Park in Ayodhya. The cabinet in a statement said that the project completion would help in generating employment and in the spread of Indian culture and tradition worldwide.

also cautioned the central and the state governments to take precautions as the Ramjanmahoomi and Babri Masjid cases are still pending in the Allahabad High Court.

"There is a trend of inaugurating incomplete projects in the state by the central and the state governments, which is just a theatrics to befool the voters," alleged.

She said the BJP-led central government and the state government have a "habit to indulge in cheap politics, which was earlier used by Congress".
