VOTING BSP IS THE ULTIMATE CHOICE FOR ALL
Yes, who else can we vote - Congress, Communist, BJP ? The obvious
choice is BSP.
If by “we” is meant Buddhists, shouldn’t there be a call from
some one who is considered a leader for all the eligible Buddhist voters in
Buddha Gaya Temple for Buddhists is like the Vatican for the Catholic
Christians for all over the world. The Chief Monk at Buddha Gaya
Temple should lead the prayers for the success of BSP and its leader
Mayawati, to be followed by prayers from all the Buddhist temples from
all over India. BSP stands for Bahujans, the 85% of the people, fondly
called so by its founder, Kanshi Ram. Mayawati, Kanshi Ram’s
successor, was led to include the poorer sections of the upper castes,
and the Bahujans has thus become the Sarvajans.
If by “we” is meant all Indians, yes, the forthcoming elections
should not be treated as politics as usual. When the voters - Buddhists and
non-Buddhists - go to the polling booths, the event should be
viewed as a nation going to its inevitable ultimate destination, the
destiny of all the peoples, the Sarvajans, not sectarians like the
Hindus, the followers of Karl Marx, or the guardians of the left-overs
of our erstwhile independence movements.
