Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesman Harish Chandra Srivastava told reporters that the allegations levelled were very serious in nature and should be probed by agencies concerned.

"Swami Prasad Maurya till not long ago was a close confidante of Mayawati and hence his allegations should be taken with all seriousness," he added.

Maurya on Friday had alleged at a convention of his supporters on Friday that Mayawati had invested Rs 2,000 crore plus in such companies and it was likely that she would, like Kingfisher owner Vijay Mallya, flee the country and settle abroad.
