Jaisalmer: Unfazed by the controversy over cash garlands, a Congress functionary here got himself honoured in a similar way.

Zila Pramukh Abdula Fakeer was felicitated with a garland made up of currency notes totalling Rs. 1.11 lakh at Chayan village of Pokhran yesterday.

"Enthusiastic party workers garlanded me despite my refusal. However, I returned the cash garland to the party workers," Fakeer, brother of a Congress MLA Sale Mohammad, said.

A huge multi-crore garland was presented to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati at a public rally in Lucknow last month fuelling demands by Opposition parties for a central probe into the source of money.
