Mayawati counters Cong ‘propaganda’

DH News Service, Bangalore:

 

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Monday countered propaganda by the Congress, that the BSP is contesting in Karnataka only to benefit the BJP.

 

Addressing a gathering of BSP workers in Devanahalli, from where BSP State President Marasandra Muniyappa is contesting, Mayawati termed it as “false propaganda”.

“We are not here to help or create problems for anybody, but only to form a Government on our own,” she said.

Pointing out that the party had experienced such poll gimmicks in Uttar Pradesh, she said, “We have successfully defeated all parties and pushed the BJP to the third place there. We are capable of repeating this in Karnataka with your support.” 

Asserting that the BSP is determined to make a major headway in Karnataka, she said the party had fielded candidates in 218 constituencies. “We are confident of defeating not only the Congress and BJP candidates but also those from other regional parties,” she said.

Appealing to the voters not to get tempted by any ‘offerings’ made by other parties, Mayawati said if her party emerged victorious in Karnataka, she would replicate in Karnataka all the pro-poor welfare programmes initiated in Uttar Pradesh.

“The BSP is no longer a party of Dalits. We have given tickets to dominant communities of Lingayats and Vokkaligas, and Brahmins in good numbers besides Dalits, Muslims, and most backward classes. No other party has done this,” she said

Civic woes could drain them!

The BSP candidate Charles Prabhakar, a practising Chartered Accountant, is pinning hopes on the 10,000 and odd Christian votes.

CEC TO ARRIVE TODAY

CEC N Gopalaswami along with two ECs, is arriving on Tuesday on a two-day visit to review preparations for the second phase. The CEC will hold two meetings in Bellary and Mangalore on May 7 and 8 respectively. All three commissioners will arrive in Bangalore on Tuesday evening and leave for Bellary on Wednesday morning.

Poll haul: Lakhs seized

Despite the strict enforcement of the poll code, many have been arrested for carrying huge sums of money. With elections just round the corner, such cases are only increasing. In the last 24 hours, police seized over Rs 33 lakh in various parts of the district…

In a major haul, Vidyaranyapuram police seized Rs 20 lakh which was being transported in a car on Nanjangud Ring Road, in Varuna Assembly constituency limits, on Sunday night. The amount was kept in three packets in a bag. Three persons were arrested.

Lakshmipuram sleuths seized Rs 6.4 lakh from another car at Ramaswamy Circle the same night. They registered a case against H P Basavaraju, an assistant engineer in the Irrigation Department, Chitradurga and a resident of Tonachikoppal here.

A sum of Rs 4 lakh was seized and one person arrested in Parasaiahnahundi, Jayapura hobli, on Monday. The money was reportedly meant for distribution among to voters seeking support for C N Manjegowda, BJP candidate from Chamundeshwari constituency.
\

Sleuths attached to Mysore South police station arrested Venkatesh and four others on charges of illegally carrying Rs 2.36 lakh, a BSP flag and other election-related materials in a car at Kalisiddanahundi check-post.

They seized Rs 50,000 and pamphlets of Gundlupet Congress candidate H S Mahadeva Prasad from a car at Varakodu gate and arrested one person in this connection.

RS 10.49 LAKH DUMPED

In a high-speed drama, a man threw out a gunny bag containing Rs 10.49 lakh from his car and sped away when the police chased him, at Manuganahalli, in Hunsur taluk, on Monday.

Preliminary investigations reveal the amount belongs to the JD-S. Based on a tip-off that a car was illegally transporting a large amount of money from Mysore to Periyapatna, police waylaid the car at Manuganahalli. But, as soon as the driver saw the police, he threw the gunny bag out and headed towards Gomatagiri

We’re serious about elections: Mayawati

BSP supremo rejects charge that it is in fray to help the BJP

oozing confidence: BSP leader Mayawati and party general secretary P.G.R. Sindhia at an election rally at Devanahalli, near Bangalore, on Monday.

BANGALORE: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Monday said her party was contesting the Assembly elections not to play spoilsport but to come to power on its own.

Addressing an election rally at Devanahalli in Bangalore Rural district, Ms. Mayawati criticised the Congress for its alleged propaganda that the BSP was in the poll fray only to help the BJP. She said her party was a serious contender and would neither help nor harm the prospects of other parties in the race.

“A few years ago the Congress indulged in a similar campaign in Uttar Pradesh. We not only defeated the Congress, but also ensured that the BJP was pushed to the third place. The BSP is contesting almost all the seats in Karnataka without any understanding with other political parties”.

Terming the Congress and the BJP as “parties propped up by capitalists,” Ms. Mayawati blamed them for price rise, poverty and unemployment in the country. As the economic policies of the Congress and BJP were aimed to help the capitalists, the poor and middle-class families had been put to all kinds of hardships. People should reject the Congress and BJP and vote for the BSP, she said.

Ms. Mayawati, who dwelt at length on the achievements of her Government in Uttar Pradesh, said the BSP was in favour of providing reservation for the poor among the upper castes. The Centre had ignored the BSP’s request to amend the Constitution for providing such a reservation, she said. The BSP supremo said her party had also urged the Centre to provide reservation to Dalit Christians on a par with the Scheduled Castes and also increase the quantum of reservation so that the existing quota for Scheduled Castes did not come down.

Ms. Mayawati attempted to convince the gathering that BSP was not against any caste or community and explained how the people belonging to upper castes had been given top positions in the party.

‘Development model’

Mysore Staff Correspondent reports:

Ms. Mayawati appealed to the people to vote for the BSP as it had set a “development model” for the State’s progress.

Addressing an election rally at Kollegal in Chamarajanagar district, Ms Mayawati said her party was contesting 218 seats out of 224 and it had not entered into an understanding with any party.

The BSP supremo maintained that her party was the only alternative in the State as the Congress, the BJP and the JD (S) had failed to address the people’s aspirations.

We are serious about elections, says Mayawati

‘BSP will emerge a key player’

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) general secretary P.G. R. Sindhia has said that the BSP will be a major player when it comes to forming the government in Karnataka.

Addressing presspersons here on Monday, Mr. Sindhia said there was a BSP waves at several places, particularly Hassan, Mysore Tumkur and Chamarajnagar districts.

He said the party would win in at least eight constituencies in these districts.

Mr. Sindhia said in other parts of the State the BSP candidates would post surprise victories.

The BSP leader predicted that the elections would throw up a hung Assembly.

Pointing out the acceptance of BSP leader Mayawati as a mass leader in Karnataka, Mr. Sindhia said he was reminded of the popularity of Indira Gandhi in Karnataka.

C.M. Grieved

Lucknow : May 05, 2008 The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati has expressed profound grief over the demise of renowned tabla maestro Padma Vibhusan Pt. Kishan Maharaj. In a condolence message, the C.M. said that Kishan Maharaj took the art of tabla playing to new heights and because of that he was referred to as Sangeet Samrat. He was trained by another renowned tabla maestro late Kanthe Maharaj. Pt. Kishan Maharaj was very popular because of his social activities. He served the world of music for a long time and took the tabla playing to new horizons and established individual tabla playing at international level on his own.

The C.M. conveyed her heart-felt condolences and deep sympathies to the bereaved family members of the late maestro and prayed for peace to the departed soul. It may be recalled that Pt.
