LESSON 22



Mayawati a more deserving PM candidate than Advani, Manmohan: Bardhan

New Delhi, Mar 20 (ANI): Communist Party of India (CPI) General
Secretary A. B. Bardhan has said that Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Chief
Mayawati is a more deserving candidate for the Prime Ministers post
than either L. K. Advani or Manmohan Singh.

Mayawati is more deserving of the Prime Ministers chair than L. K.
Advani or Manmohan Singh, Bardhan has told NDTV in an exclusive
interview to be aired on Sunday.

‘Aboriginal
Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath
(Scheduled Caste)’ woman aims to lead Prabuddha Bharath

A
firebrand
politician and champion of Prabuddha Bharath’s Aboriginal Inhabitant of
Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath is
making a powerful, and some say credible, play to become the country’s
first “Scheduled Caste” premier.

Mayawati Kumari, a member of the Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath community, is chief minister of Uttar
Pradesh state which boasts a population roughly the size of Brazil’s.

Hugely popular with her regional power base, she
has now taken her ambitions to the national level ahead of general
elections that start next month.

On Sunday, she
announced her Bahujan Samaj Party
(BSP, the Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great
Prabuddha Bharath Society Party) would contest seats across the country
on its own, challenging the two main national parties – the ruling
Congress, and the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Mayawati first came to power in Uttar Pradesh in
1995, making her the first Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath to head a state government.
She has held the chief minister’s post three more times since then and
now has her sights set on an even larger prize.

“If a Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath woman like me can become the chief
minister of Uttar Pradesh not once but four times, why can I not become
the prime minister ?” she asked party workers last year.

In 2007, Time magazine ranked her as the fifteenth most influential person in India and last year the New York Times said the 53-year-old former teacher was “the most important Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath politician” in India’s history.

Shunned by higher castes, India’s 165 million Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath perform the lowliest tasks, and are generally poor, illiterate
and landless.

But despite the formal abolition of
“untouchability” under the Indian constitution in 1950, the UN
Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination reported in 2007
that “de facto segregation persists.”

With neither the Congress nor the BJP capable of
securing an outright majority on their own, some analysts believe
Mayawati’s prime ministerial aspirations have moved beyond the realm of
pipe dreams.

“With all the election forecasts predicting a
fractured verdict, Mayawati does have an edge,” said political analyst
and author Rasheed Kidwai.

“Uttar Pradesh elects the maximum number of 80 MPs
to parliament. So even if her party wins 35-40 seats in the state, she
will be in a good position to take a shot at the prime ministership,”
he said.

Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath have been appointed to some of the highest
posts in India – including the presidency and Supreme Court chief
justice – but none have come as far as Mayawati in the field of
electoral politics.

Born into a “Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath(Chamar)” or leatherworkers’ family on
the outskirts of New Delhi in 1956, Mayawati was studying law when she
was talent spotted by the then BSP president Kanshi Ram in the
mid-1980s.

Ram persuaded her to join politics, telling her “she was born to rule (rather) than to serve”.

Within a decade, Mayawati had become chief minister.

Though her first term lasted less than six months,
“Behenji” or “sister” as she is respectfully called, became an instant
icon for millions of Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath.

At one party fundraising event, she told
supporters that they were wasting their money seeking the favour of
various Indian deities.

“I am your living goddess who has dedicated her
entire life for your welfare,” she said, urging them to donate funds to
her party.

In order to move to the prime minister’s residence
in Delhi, Mayawati will have to broaden her base beyond the Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath community and also beyond the borders of Uttar Pradesh.

Her victory in state polls in 2007 came about
after she successfully wooed Muslims and upper caste Brahmins.

According to Three Baskets Study Circle, a strong BSP showing in the general election is certain to
cast Mayawati  bring her the crown itself.

“If they are able to add umbrella support beyond
her core voters, that will provide her the leverage.”

Mayawati to focus on welfare of ‘sarv samaj’

Atiq Khan


Releases list of candidates






Mayawati

LUCKNOW: Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati on Friday promised a
government at the Centre qualitatively different from the Congress and
the Bharatiya Janata Party regimes. The welfare of ‘sarv samaj,’
inclusive of all religions and castes, would be the cornerstone of the
national and foreign policies.

At a press conference here on Friday, she released the party’s list of candidates for the 80 Lok Seats in the State here.

Brahmins get the lion’s share of 20 seats, followed byAboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs) (17
seats) and Muslims 14. Other Backward Classes and non-Brahmin upper
castes get the remaining seats.

The BSP supremo released a 32-page special election ‘appeal’ for the
electorate of Uttar Pradesh and cautioned voters not to fall prey to
the election stunts of the Congress, the BJP and their allies.

Indicating that she remained a strong contender for the prime
ministership, Ms. Mayawati announced that she would kick off the BSP’s
poll campaign at a rally in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala on Saturday.

She rubbished the economic polices of the Congress and the BJP-led
governments, which, she alleged, promoted the interests of a few
industrialists.

Ms. Mayawati took a dig at the India-U.S. nuclear deal of the UPA
government and said the BSP government would never mortgage the
interests of India.

The BSP president blamed the Congress, which ruled the country for
about half a century, for the miseries of the poor and the downtrodden
and the unemployment and economic and educational backwardness.

Ms. Mayawati’s appeal listed 40 achievements of the BSP government based on the principle of sarvjan hitaya sarvjan sukhaya.


Mayawati to launch 52-day poll campaign from Kerala Saturday

LUCKNOW - Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president and Uttar Pradesh
Chief Minister Mayawati will fly down to Kerala to launch her
nationwide 52-day-long poll campaign from Thiruvananthapuram Saturday.

‘Kerala was picked as my first destination simply because I was keen
to kick start the campaign from a state where our party was still in a
nascent stage,’ Mayawati said at a press conference here Friday.

However, she declined to reveal how many seats her party proposed to contest across the country.

‘We will make a formal announcement over the next four of five days
with a list of states where we will field candidates, as also the exact
number of seats we propose to contest out of the 543 Lok Sabha seats in
the country,’ she said.

Earlier, Mayawati named the party candidates for the 80 Lok Sabha
seats in Uttar Pradesh. She said her party would also field candidates
in all 20 parliamentary constituencies in Kerala.

The BSP chief, who is the only star campaigner for her party, said
she will go around the entire country, apart from the north-eastern
states, between March 21 and May 11.

‘My last election rally will be held on May 11,’ she said, adding:
‘Despite my hectic schedule, I will make it a point to return every
night to Lucknow, so that I can attend to my duties as chief minister
of the country’s most populous state too.’

‘In any case, wherever I may be, I will be keeping track of every
development back home here; after all it is election time and we need
to guard against any kind of mischief by the opposition,’ she said.

Mayawati asserted she would ensure a ‘free and fair election’ under all circumstances.

‘We will not allow any kind of booth capturing and see to it that
every legitimate voter gets a chance to exercise their right to
franchise,’ she said.

Thiruvananthapuram, March 19 (IANS)

Another formidable opponent is Neelalohithadasan Nadar, who as a
Congress candidate in 1980 trounced CPI leader M.N. Govindan Nair.

Party (BSP).He is named the BSP candidate for the key

Jharkhand

 
Iqbal Durrani to contest the Lok Sabha elections

19 Mar 2009, 2059 hrs IST, Navtan Kumar, ET Bureau

 

RANCHI: Adding glamour to electioneering in Jharkhand, Bollywood
writer and director Iqbal Durrani has decided to contest the Lok Sabha
elections from Godda the plac
e where he spent his childhood days, on a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ticket with a slogan which goes as ‘Hum Dum’.

Durrani
has written scripts and directed several blockbusters like ‘Khuddar’,
‘Phool Aur Kaante’, ‘Kaalchakra’ , ‘Shiva’, ‘Benam Badshah’, ‘Betaj
Badshah’, ‘Kohram’ and ‘Dhartiputra’ to name a few. “I have earned a
lot of name, fame and money and now I want to do something for the
people, especially those in Godda, which is very dear to me, since it
has been my ‘karmabhhomi, ” said Durrani, who landed to Ranchi on
Thursday afternoon.

Explaining the meaning of the ‘Hum Dum’
slogan, he said: “‘Hindu aur Muslim mile to banta hai Hum, aur Aboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudviap, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs)
aur Muslim mile to banta hai Dum; aur hum dum dono mile jaye to ban
jaate hain ‘Hum Dum’. This is the spirit of a great country like India.
When other parties are dividing the society, I have given a new slogan
which unites people. My concept is ‘unite and rule’ in contrast to
‘divide and rule’ of others.”

According to him, politics
provides a good platform for doing something for the people. People
have seen many parliamentarians, but I will prove to be a much better
one. I should be given one chance, he told the ET. Durrani has been
nursing his ambition to contest the LS elections for a long time. In
fact, he had been to Ranchi several times in the recent past to speak
to top leaders of different parties. However, finally he stitched a
deal with Mayawati’s BSP which is trying to make inroads into Jharkhand
politics.

Godda, at present, is being represented by Furqan Ansari of Congress.
Durrani feels that people of the area are disenchanted with the
“non-functioning” of the present MP and the UPA government at the
Centre and thus, hopes to get a good chunk of anti-incumbency votes in
his favour. Babulal Marandi’s Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM), on the
other hand, has fielded Pradeep Yadav, at present an MLA from the same
area.

Durrani is hopeful that he will get the love and
affection of the people of the area, who will send him to Lok Sabha
with a good margin of votes. “I have been visiting the area frequently
in the recent past. And, the kind of response I have got is
overwhelming. I am going to win the elections. The only thing to be
seen is the margin of votes,” he said. As a mark of respect for the
great tribal leader of Jharkhand, Birsa Munda, Durrani has already made
a film on him — Gandhi Se Pehle Gandhi. He has also written a book in
the same name.

Durrani was born in Balwatari, under Banka
district of Bihar, close to Jharkhand, but later his family was shifted
to Godda where he did his schooling. His father was a
government
teacher. He later took admission in Tata College, Chaibasa, under the
Ranchi University, before shifting to Mumbai to make a career in films.
He was the first Muslim student to win as the secretary in the college
elections. He also stayed in Delhi for sometime to do a course in
computer programming.

BSP releases list of 80 candidates for Uttar Pradesh


LUCKNOW - Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief and Uttar Pradesh Chief
Minister Mayawati released a list of candidates for 80 Lok Sabha seats
in Uttar Pradesh.

She also announced that the BSP’s nationwide campaign would start from Saturday.

“Tomorrow, I will start the BSP national campaign from Kerala with a
rally in Thiruvananthapuram,” she told a press conference here.

The BSP Chief also released the party’s ’special appeal’ to the electorate in Uttar Pradesh.

Mayawati said she would be campaigning non-stop across the country from Saturday till May11.

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said the State Government would
ensure that people of all religions, castes and community are allowed
to vote.

According to BSP officials, the party would come out with the list
of party candidates from rest of the country in four-five days. (ANI)

More Brahmins, fewer Aboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs) among BSP candidates

Lucknow, March 20 Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief and Uttar Pradesh
Chief Minister Mayawati Friday announced candidates for all 80 Lok
Sabha seats in the state. The list has more Brahmins and fewer Aboriginal Inahbitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs).

Deviating from her past practice, Mayawati did not give the caste break
up of her candidates at her press conference here. But her aides
pointed out that their leader has been “generous with Brahmins”.

Of the 29 nominees picked from among Hindu upper castes, 20 are
Brahmins, followed by four Thakurs, three Banias and two others.

While other backward classes (OBCs) got a handsome chunk of 20
seats, the number of  Aboriginal Inahbitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs) did not exceed the 17 Lok Sabha
constituencies reserved for the community.

These were followed by 14 Muslims, including Shafiqur Rehman Burque,
who recently defected from the Samajwadi Party and has been fielded
from Moradabad.

The preference for Brahmins in the BSP list indicates that Mayawati
continues to bank on the “social engineering” formula of bringing
together upper and Aboriginal Inahbitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs) castes that gave her power in Uttar Pradesh in
2007.

Among these are D.P. Yadav, who is to be fielded from Budaun, Aruna
Shankar Shukla ‘Anna’ (Unnao), Dhananjay Singh (Jaunpur), Mukhtar
Ansari (Varanasi) and his brother Afzal Ansari from Ghazipur.

Bhishm Shankar Tiwari and Vinay Shankar Tiwari, the nominees from
Sant Kabir Nagar and Gorakhpur respectively, are sons 
minister Hari Shankar Tiwari.

One of the candidates is Jagdish Rana (Saharanpur).


Lone ranger Mayawati to launch campaign from March 22

LUCKNOW - With three private helicopters at her disposal, Uttar
Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati will hit the campaign trail Sunday to
rally voters across the country for her Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) that
plans to contest at least 400 Lok Sabha seats in the coming election.

Seen by her BSP as the only crowd puller, who does not need the
additional props of film stars or celebrities, Mayawati will set
herself a punishing pace as she spins across the country for the
five-phase elections that begin April 16 and go on till May 13.

While the campaign will be launched from Deoria, the far eastern
corner of Uttar Pradesh bordering Bihar on March 22, she will make
intermittent trips to 23 other states where the BSP proposes to field
its candidates, said a BSP leader.

Other than Uttar Pradesh, she will essentially focus on Bihar,
Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Himachal
Pradesh where her party had succeeded in making a dent in the assembly
elections.

‘We are not impressed by film personalities or other celebrities
whom other parties hire to collect crowds,’ observed a senior party
functionary. ‘Our greatest celebrity is Behenji who is the biggest
crowd puller and does not require filmi faces to collect crowds.’

‘As many as 24 rallies have been planned for Uttar Pradesh where she
proposes to cover at least three constituencies with each rally,’ the
official told IANS requesting anonymity.

To aid the hectic travel, three private helicopters have been hired
for use by Mayawati and her trusted aides Satish Chandra Misra and
Naseemuddin Siddiqui.

While Mayawati spreads her wings across the country, Misra and
Siddiqui would concentrate on Uttar Pradesh to target Brahmins and
Muslims in the party’s bid to increase it tally of 17 seats in the 14th
Lok Sabha.

Misra is also stated to have been detailed for Rajasthan, Madhya
Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi, where he has organised
Brahmin-Aboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath(SC/STs) Bhaichara Sammellans (Brahmin-Aboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath(SC/STs) friendship meets).

Mayawati is understood to be personally controlling the entire
nationwide campaign from her Kalidass Marg residence here. A central
campaign office has also been set up at her new home in New Delhi’s
Gurudwara Rakabganj Marg, where she hosted a dinner for Third Front
leaders Sunday.

She is right now said to be busy finalising the list of candidates
for as many as 400 Lok Sabha constituencies, including Uttar Pradesh’s
80 seats.

‘The list would announced in the next two-three days,’ said a party official.


BSP releases list of candidates for MP and J-K

New Delhi, Mar 19 (ANI): The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has released
its first list of 11 candidates for Madhya Pradesh and five candidates
for Jammu and Kashmir for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The party will contest all 29 seats from Madhya Pradesh.

The BSP has also announced that the name for the Ladakh seat will be finalising later.

The Mayawati-led BSP is the only party to have announced its list of candidates for Jammu and Kashmir. (ANI)

Jammu & Kashmir

BSP readies for high-voltage J-K campaign
Posted online: March 19, 2009 at 1220

Jammu After it drew a blank in the last Assembly
elections in Jammu and Kashmir, the Bahajuan Samaj Party (BSP) is
getting ready to launch a high-voltage campaign in the state once
again. The party, which is contesting all six Lok Sabha seats in the
state, is planning a mega rally at Jammu on March 30 which will be
addressed by UP CM and party Supremo Mayawati.


The party, which has proposed the name of Mayawati as its Prime
Ministerial candidate, is trying to break new ground in the state by
co-opting people from both the lower and upper castes in the upcoming
parliamentary elections.

Addressing a press conference, BSP national general secretary
Narendra Kashyap on Wednesday said that apart from the issues like
unemployment and escalation in the prices of essential commodities, the
party would make fighting militancy its central poll plank. “We lost
all the Assembly seats as the agitation over transfer of land to Shri
Amaranth Shrine Board (SASB) had influenced the choice of voters a
great deal in the state. It was a vote which was given on (the basis
of) caste and religion and there was nothing missing in our efforts.
However, the issues in the Lok Sabha elections will be different and
our party has become stronger after nearly a dozen regional and
national parties supported party president, Mayawtiji, as the Prime
Ministerial candidate,” he said.

Kashyap also signalled the BSP’s willingness to take up local
issues. “We fully support the demand of the people of Ladakh for UT
status. It is a genuine demand and if we get a seat from Ladakh we will
get the UT status for it,” added Kashyap.

The party has decided to field Choudhary Hussain Ali Wafa from
Jammu, Rakesh Wazir from Udhampur, Ghulam Mustafa Kasana from
Baramulla, Mohammad Yousuf Beigh from Srinagar and Nisar Ahmed Khan
from Anantang. It is yet to finalise its candidate from Ladakh.

Gujarat
 
Mayawati to launch party campaign in Guj from Mar 31

Vadodara: Uttar Pradesh CM and president of the Bahujan
Samajwadi Party (BSP), Mayawati will launch her party’s campaign in
Gujarat from March 31, a party leader said.
 

BSP state general secretary and former minister, Nalin
Bhatt said that Mayawati will address a public meeting in Ahmedabad on
March 31.

This will be BSP supremo’s first visit to Gujarat after
the announcement of Lok Sabha polls by the election commission. The
state will go to polls on April 30.

Though the party has decided to contest all the 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state, it has yet to finalise its candidates.
BSP will have no tie up with any other party in the state, Bhatt said.
When reminded about poor performance of BSP in 2007
state assembly elections where it failed to win a single seat, Bhatt
said it served party’s purpose of expanding base in the state as it had
secured 5.72 lakh of total votes cast in the
assembly elections. The votes amounted to 2.26 per cent of total voting, Bhatt said.

“We want to open account in the state and winning of
seats from Gujarat can help our party get the goal of forming
government at the Centre,” he said.

The party will try to convince voters about framing
economic policies for betterment of all sections of society,
introducing quotas in private sector for SCs/STs and OBCs as well as
economically weaker sections of the upper castes if they vote it to
power, he said.

The BJP, Congress and their allies may appear as different parties, but in the eyes of BSP they all are same, Bhatt said.
“Their role is to keep BSP at bay. They do not want the party to gain power at the Centre,” Bhatt said.

The BSP has now allowed the PRP to use the Parade Grounds on March 21 for the latter’s meeting.


Prajarajyam Party (PRP) will hold its proposed public meeting at the
Parade Grounds in the city on March 21. This was decided after
the party came to an understanding with the Bahujan Samaj Party which
had earlier booked the grounds from March 20-24 for its public meeting
on March 23.

Since the Parade Grounds was not available, the PRP booked the
nearby Bison Polo ground and Gymkhana grounds from March 19 to 21 for
its public meeting on March 21.

However, since the PRP desired to hold the public meeting at the
Parade Grounds itself, its representatives spoke to BSP leaders in the
city and came to an understanding. The BSP has now allowed the PRP to
use the Parade Grounds on March 21 for the latter’s meeting.

Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Bahujana Samaj Party (BSP)
president Mayawati will address a public meeting at the Parade Grounds
as scheduled on March 23.

Incidentally, the contractor for arranging the stages for both the
PRP and BSP meetings is the same. Except for a few changes, the BSP
will use the same stage, said PRP Secunderabad cantonment in-charge N
Ravi Kumar.

The PRP which booked the Gymkhana ground and also Bison Polo grounds will now utilise them for parking of vehicles.

When contacted, DEO S Balakrishna said since both the PRP and BSP
came to an understanding on the use of the Parade Grounds, permission
has been accorded to both of them.
