The Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh is facing the heat for organising an extravagant event like 'Saifai Mahotsav' when the riot victims in Muzaffarnagar battle cold in their makeshift camps.

"Don't know what Mulayam Singh and other leaders are waiting for. At a time when riot victims in Muzaffarnagar are lacking basic necessities, so much money is being spent here, " said one of the attendants at the two-week festival that culminates today.
