In wake of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's emphasis on eliminating VIP culture from Uttar Pradesh, an inspection conducted by a team of officials revealed that former chief minister has unpaid bills worth Rs. 4 lakh.

The team upon arriving at his residence found that the permissible limit of 5 kW a day was being busted by as many as eight times. He has been given a time period till the end of the month to pay up.

The (SP) patriarch's sprawling residence in the Civil Lines area of his constituency Etawah 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.

Officials had changed the configurations to allow him 40 kW against a payment in lieu of the additional power supply.
