Bahujan Samaj Party

“APPEAL”

For Lok Sabha

General Elections-2009

Kumari Mayawati

National President,

Bahujan Samaj Party

 








                               Kumari Mayawati

National President,

Bahujan Samaj Party


Brothers and Sisters,

 

            As it is known to all, Bahujan Samaj
Party or B.S.P. is the only party in the country, which believes in
“deeds and
not in words”.
That is why our party, unlike other parties, does not
release an election
“Manifesto” containing “alluring promises” in
any election rather B.S.P.only makes an “
APPEAL” to people for votes,
enabling it to complete its unfinished works of Sants, Gurus and great men born
in the Bahujan Samaj from time to time, especially
Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Chhatrapati
Shahuji Maharaj, Narayana Guru, Parampujya Baba Saheb Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar and
Manyavar Shri Kanshi Ram Ji
by following the path shown by them so that
it can produce good results in the elections to gain power and then with the
“Master Key”
of political power can make the lives of the suffering and oppressed people
prosperous in every respect. This is because Parmpujya Baba Saheb Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar
was of the view that
“political power is a master-key by which all the
problems can be solved”.

            By following this very thinking of
Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar, our party is contesting these general elections for
Lok Sabha on all the seats alone on its own strength and with preparedness, in
other words our party has not forged any electoral alliance of any kind with
any party in these elections.

            But here the main question that
arises is why it is essential for the general public of the country to cast
their votes for the B.S.P. alone and not for the Congress and B.J.P.their
allies? This main and essential point will have to be understood.

            In this regard, it is the contention
of the B.S.P. that it is the only party in the country the
“Ideology and
Policies”
and
“Work Style” of which are in the interest of Sarva Samaj (entire society) and our
party does whatever it says in the interest of Sarva Samaj where as other parties make a lot of promises and do
very little, in other words most of their work is projected on paper, and very
little is seen as being implemented on ground.

            This is the main reason why because
of wrong policies of the parties having a casteist mindset no significant
change has come about even 61 tears after the country’s Independence in the “social and economic” condition of the “Bahujan Samaj”, which comprises the
Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and religious
minorities including the people of different communities like the Sikhs,
Muslims, Christians, Parsis and Buddhists etc., who account for 85 percent of
the country’s total population.

            And I have mentioned about “Wrong
Policies”
here because the parties which have so far formed governments
in the Centre and most of the states in the country have been depending on
financial help from big capitalists as a result of which these parties on
coming to power tailor their every
“Economic Policy” to suit the needs of those
capitalists, in other words their economic policies are not prepared for
removing the hardship of the general public. This is the main reason why the
economic condition of the Bahujan Samaj
people as well as of the poor people belonging to Upper Castes continues to be bad and pitiable even now.

            Keeping all this in view, we had to
form a separate political party by the name of
“Bahujan Samaj Party” (B.S.P) on
April 14, 1984, under the leadership of
“Manyavar Shri Kanshi Ram Ji” by
following the path shown by Parampujya Baba Saheb Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar and now
it has emerged as an important party at the
“national level”.

            Not only this, our party has rather
gradually increased its mass-base throughout the country and also sent its MPs
to Parliament and MLAs to legislatures in several states. Besides, government
has been formed under the leadership of our party in Uttar Pradesh four
times  and during all the four terms of
office our party’s government has taken full care of the interest of the Sarva Samaj, but it has given priority
to those people of Bahujan Samaj, who
had been neglected on a large scale in “social and economic” spheres by the
governments of other parties in the past. Taking this issue of neglect
seriously, our party’s government in order to bring about an improvement in the
“social and economic” condition of
Bahujan Samaj people in Uttar Pradesh has for the first time in the country
constituted a separate welfare department for every segment of the society and
by selecting under the
“Dr.Ambedkar Rural Development Scheme” villages
with preponderance of the SC/ST population in particular has decided to cover
them with every kind of essential amenities and now the name of this scheme has
been changed to the
“Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar Uttar Pradesh Gramsabha
Integrated Development Scheme”.

          Similarly,
an
“Urban
Integrated Development Scheme
” has also been launched in the name of
Manyawar
Shri Kanshi Ram Ji, through
which all the cities, towns and ‘kasbas’,
big and small, in Uttar Pradesh are being development in a phased manner.

            Besides, to a large number of poor
people in the urban areas of Uttar Pradesh, who because of their helplessness
had settled unauthorisedly on the land of the state government departments and
have been living there since before 15-01-2009, our government under a
“Sarvjan
Hithaiy Urban Slum Area Ownership Right Scheme”
has decided to give
ownership right to residential plots measuring a maximum of 30 sq. metres and
minimum of 15sq.metres and commercial plots for employment measuring a maximum
of 10 sq. metres. In the history of the state such a decision had not been
taken by any of the past governments because of which the poor people in a
large number have been exploited for years by government employees, land-mafias
and employees of municipalities etc. But since 15-01-2009 after implementation
of this scheme from my birthday, they have got
ownership right to their
residential plot in urban areas, while they have also got freedom from all
kinds of exploitation.

            Along with this, the government land
lying vacant is being distributed with actual possession thereof for
two-room
pucca
house and for cultivation to the poor helpless people of the Sarv Samaj in the state with priority to
the SC/STs, exploited and backwards in particular, which has so far benefited
lakhs of poor people in the state and this process is still continuing.

            For promoting education, like for
the children of the Scheduled Castes/Tribes, our party’s government has for the
first time in India provided scholarships to poor children from the Other
Backward Classes (OBCs) and religious minorities, particularly Muslims, and in
view of rise in prices the scholarship rate has also been doubled. The
scholarship is distributed to the students soon after they take admission. Our
government has arranged for
“free government coaching” for poor students of
these classes to enable them to get high ranking jobs.

            Beside, along with these classes in
Uttar Pradesh, a new era in the field of higher and technical education has
been ushered in for poor children of the
Sarvjan Samaj
for which a historic decision has been taken for the first
time to send students of the newly established Gautam Buddha University in
Gautam Buddha Nagar district (Greater Noida) at government expense to Europe or
other foreign countries for higher education.

            By giving priority to development of
the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes a separate provision of 25 percent
fund has been made for the first time in the budget for them. Similarly, for
creating a sense of security among the Bahujan
Samaj
people a provision of
“reservation”has been made for the first time
in the country for posting police officers from their society as police station
officers.

            Full care has also been taken of the
interests of the biggest constituent of the
“religious minority society”, the
Muslims, in particular in every sphere. Their economic development has been
ensured and their lives, properties and religion have been fully protected.
Besides, by including the economically backward people in the Muslim society in
the list of backward classes, our party’s government has for the first time in
the state made available to them the benefit of reservation in education and
state level government jobs.

            A New Initiative in Respect of
Reservation:
In regard to reservation too, we in all our four terms of
our rule in Uttar Pradesh have conducted a special drive and cleared the
backlog of the
“reserved quota” Vacancies for the people of
the Scheduled Castes/Tribes and Other Backward Classes in government jobs and
other areas at the state level which had not been filled up for years.

            Besides, our partyhas been making
relentless efforts for securing the benefit of
“Reservation” for the Scheduled
Castes/Tribes and Other Backward Classes in the areas like the judiciary,
council of ministers, Rajya Sabha, Legislative Council and the private sector
etc., all over the country in which reservation has not yet been provided to
them by the Central Government. In this regard letters have been written to the
Central Government several times. Along with this, our party has written
several times to the Central Government for providing the benefit of additional reservation to those people of the Scheduled
Castes/Tribes who have become Christian
or Muslims
through religious conversion by including them in the list of
Schedlued Castes/Tribes by keeping intact the present fixed quota of
reservation for the later. But the government of no party formed in the Centre
so far has acceded to this reasonable demand of these people.

            This not all, the governments of the
Congress party and BJP and their allies have been trying to end reservation
gradually by giving to the
Private Sector on a large scale those “Government
departments”
and “institutions”
in the Centre and all the states of the country in which the people of the
Scheduled Castes/Tribes and Other Backward Classes have been getting job
reservation under government, as there is no provision of reservation as yet in
the private sector for these classes at the Central and the state levels. In a
situation  like this the reservation for
these classes will automatically come to an end one day. Our party is very
“worried” over this and in this regard the people of these classes in the
entire country also need to be very “alert”.

            And in this regard, it is also the
belief of our party that this reservation for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled
Tribes and Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in our country can be
“protected”
and reservation made available to them in the areas in which they are not yet
getting this benefit only when these people form their own government in the
Centre and the states. And a concrete example of this is the formation of our
party’s government in Uttar Pradesh as the B.S.P. government has ensured a
guarantee for maintaining the earlier available reservation  system even after a “government department” and ”institution
is handed over to the Private Sector.

Besides, in regard to
reservation, I wish to tell the people of the “upper caste society” that our
party is in favour of providing separate reservation to the poor people of this
class on an economic basis in the entire country. But it is the government in
the “Centre” which will have to introduce it by amending the Constitution.
Therefore, our party’s government has written several times to the Central
Government for providing separate reservation to the people of this class on an
economic basis. But the government of no party in the Centre has so far agreed
to this demand of ours. However, in this regard, I wish to give this assurance
to the people of the “upper caste
society”
that the day of our party’s government is formed in the Centre
like that in Uttar Pradesh it will make a meaningful effort to remove poverty
and unemployment of the people of the upper caste society  by certainly making the reservation facility available
to them even without their asking for it. And in this regard, you know it well
about the work culture of our party that it does what it says, in other words
there is no difference between its words and deeds.

            Along with reservation, our party’s
government has always been fully sensitive and serious over the issue of social
security. Therefore, we have raised the amount of the old age/farmers pension
from Rs.150 to 30, In addition, our party’s government immediately raised the
daily wages of the
labourers from Rs.58(fifty eight) to Rs.10
(one hundred) for the labourers as it is the most poor and weak class and
belongs mostly to the category of landless labourers to whom no attention had
been paid ever before because of their being unorganized. And daily wages of
sanitation
workers
has also been hiked from Rs.73 (seventy-three ) to Rs.10 (one
hundred).

            This is also known to all that the
long rule of the Congress, B.J.P. and their allies for about 61 years
agriculture
and farmers
have been neglected a
great deal in the entire country, but our party’s government has paid special
attention to agriculture and farmers also by keeping them in the priority
category. Besides, our government in Uttar Pradesh instead of giving unemployment allowance to the youths is
giving them an opportunity to live with dignity, self-respect and self-reliance
by making provision for permanent employment to them. And from May 13, 207 till
January, 2009, in less than two years, arrangement has been made for permanent
employment for seven lakhs people in government and for another two lakhs
people in non-government sector.

            In addition to the interests of the
poor and unemployed people of the Sarva
Samaj,
our party’s government has taken full care of the interests of
“farmers”,
“labourers”, “traders”
and the people engaged in
“other
occupation”
and many important decisions have been taken in their
interest also.

            Women Empowerment: Along with
this, our government has granted
“inheritance right” to unmarried daughters from
Sarva Samaj in the properties of their father by amending the section-171 and
174 of the Zamidari Abolition and Land Reforms Act, 1950 for improving the
social and economic condition of women in Uttar Pradesh. Earlier during my second
tenure of rule in 1997 I had secured this
“legal rights” to widows.

            Besides, two important schemes have
been launched on my 53rd birthday oy our party’s government for a
bright future of girls in the state. The first one has been launched ny the
name “Mahamaya Gairb Ashirvad Yojana” (Mahamaya Scheme of Blessings of poor
girls) under which in the name of every girl born in the below the poverty line
families after January 15, 2009, a fixed deposit of a certain amount is made
and the girl on its maturity when she completes the age of 18 years will get a
lump sum of
Rs. One lakh. After the launching of this scheme, the birth of
the girl child instead of being viewed as a burden will strengthen a tendency
to view it as a welcome event and it will also provide special help in
correcting the growing imbalance of gender ratio gap in the state.

            Similarly, the second scheme has
been launched as
“savitri Bai Phule 
Balika Shiksha Madad Yogana”(Savitri Bai Phule Scheme of assistance for
education of girls) under which a decision has been taken to provide a
lump sum amount for further studies to the girls of the below the poverty line
families, who have passed the standard tenth.

            In this regard, I wish to inform you
that when such a girl takes admission to the standard eleventh, she is being
given a lump sum of
Rs.15 thousand and a ladies bicycle and when
the girl passes standard eleventh examinations and takes admission to the
standard twelfth she will be given an additional amount of Rs.10000 by the
government for completing further studies. All these amounts will be in
addition to the scholarship or facilities made under other heads.

            Along with these works, our party’s
government in Uttar Pradesh has given full honour and respect to many Sants,
Gurus and great men born in the Bahujan
Samaj
from time to time, who have been neglected by the past government. In
their names many public welfare schemes have been launched in the interests of
the Sarva Samaj and several
“new districts, “universities, “memorials” and
“museums” and parks etc.,
have been built in their memory.

            Besides, I have to tell you here
that the SC/STs, backwards and the people of the other neglected classes in the
country have been the victims of atrocities and excesses of various kinds of
perpetrated by the people having a casteist mindset from Independence till even
now and they are not able to get proper and timely justice. But our party after
coming to power in the Centre will not allow any “atrocity and excess” to be
committed on any class of the society of the society in the country, in other
words it will do “justice” with honesty and dedication to all and like in Uttar
Pradesh it will create in the entire country an atmosphere free from
“injustice, crime and fear” by establishing a “Rule of Law by Lawful Means”.

            Along with this, in the absence of proper
development of all the regions in the country and because of want, injustice,
exploitation, poverty and deprivation some people are adopting the path of
NAXALISM
and governments in the Centre and the states have not so far paid proper
attention towards them, but our party on coming to power in the Centre will
wean them away from the path of Naxalism by finding a “lasting solution” to all
these problems of theirs and along with this it will try to bring them in the
mainstream of development by providing
“permanent employment” to them.

            Besides, terrorism has emerged as a very
big problem and serious challenge in the country over the past few years and
the main reason for it appears to be “laxity”
and “weaknesses” of the Central
government itself and to a certain extent its political self-interest as well. But our party will pay full
attention towards this also.

            And as far as the question of the National
Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme
is concerned, under this scheme there
is a provision for providing employment for only 100 days out of 365 days in a
year and that too only one unemployed person in a family. But our party on
coming to power in the Centre will start a scheme for the poor people living in
rural areas of the entire country which will ensure which will ensure provision
of
permanent
employment for these people throughout the year for all the 365 days
.

            Besides, on our party coming to power
in the Centre all its policies all its policies at the
“national and international”levels
in every respect will be framed by keeping in view the people of all the
religions and castes in the Sarva Samaj.
And
“Foreign
Policy”
will also be evolved by keeping all this in view. In other
words, while framing foreign policy and entering into any agreement with a foreign
country, special attention will be paid to the national security as well as the
country’s dignity, self respect and sovereignty.

            In addition, plans of “all
ministries” of the Central government will be reviewed and operated in a proper
manner so that the general public in the country is able to get the full
benefit of all the schemes directly and easily. Not only this, our party’s
government will not enter into any deal with any country in the world which may
lead to its subjugation by that country later on.

            Along with this, our government will
not frame any “economic Policy” in any area which like the past governments
will continue to work for development of capitalists instead of formation of
capital in the country. In other words
our party wants growth of capital and not development
of capitalists in the country so that the life of the common people in both
urban and rural areas including farmers, workers, traders and those engaged in
other occupations for employment becomes prosperous.

          Thus
every “Economic Policy” of our country will be designed to benefit the general
public and not make the rich richer and the poor poorer as it has been
happening during the rule of the Congress and B.J.P. and their allies so far in
our country and most of the states. And then only the poor people of this
country will be able to get two square meals in a proper way. It is only after
this that the missionary goal our party to create an environment of
“Sarvjan
Hitaiy and Sarvaja Sukhaiy”(
In The Interest Of And For Happiness Of
All) in the entire country can be realised in a true sense.

            But for this to happen they will
have to take
the “Master Key of Political Power” into their own hands by
showing a good result of their party in the Lok Sabha general elections being
held now. And for this, they will certainly have to be cautious against many
tactics of the opposition parties like attempts
to cajole, coerce, lure and divide
because these parties can go to any
extent to harm our party.

            In this regard, the opposition
parties will try their best to see in particular that our party does not get
the votes of the Sarvarn Samaj and to
this end they can also try to project the ideology and policies of our party in
a distorted manner before the upper castes. This is despite the fact that the
ideology and policies of our party are not against any caste and religion, in
other words the B.S.P. wants to establish an
“equalitarian social order” in
this country by changing the inequitable social order based on “caste line”, an objective that is in
the interest of the country and the sarv samaj.
And if in this
“transformation of order” along with the
Bahujan Samaj the people of the Savarn
Samaj
also cooperate by changing their casteist mindset, then the doors of
the Bahujan Samaj Party (B.S.P.) are
always open for admission and advancement of such people with dignity and
self-respect. What I am implying is that the ideology and policies of the
B.S.P. are not against the upper caste society.

          In
this regard, I would like the upper caste people to think over the question why
the B.S.P. would have kept these people in the organization at the national and
state levels had its ideology and policies been against the Savarn Samaj? And
then why would the B.S.P. would have fielded such people on its tickets in the
Lok Sabha and Assembly elections and on formation of its government inducted
them into honourable positions of ministers? From this, it is fully clear that
the ideology and policies of our party are based on the principle
of “Sarvajan Hitaiy and Sarvajan Sukhaiy (Progress and
Prosperity of All.

Besides, with regard to the “Ideology and Policies” of the B.S.P., I
also want to make it clear that an “equalitarian social order” is not going to
be established in the country by organizing the Bahujan Samaj people alone. For
this, we will have to carry along with us Savarn Hindus also on the basis of a
spirit of social brotherhood by changing their casteist mindsetand then only
and “equalitarian social orderas envisioned by the architect of the India Constitution Baba Saheb Dr.
Ambedkarcan be really established in this country. And it is only after this
that the people of the Sarv Samaj can
be united together and distinctions of “high and low and caste and creed” can
come to an end and then alone our party can get an opportunity to come to
powering the Centre and the states.

            But the B.S.P. people
will have to keep it in mind that the Congress, B.J.P. and their allies will
not allow our party to come to power in the Centre and the states that easily
and that for preventing our party from achieving this goal they will use
machination of every kind of our party will have to remain on guard against
this at every step.

            Along with this, it is
my fervent appeal to our party people all over the country “to remain alert so
that their in valuable votes are neither bought nor looted nor remain unused
and no selfish person is able to misuse their votes by ensnaring them in the
name of caste and creed, money, temple and mosque or by any kind of emotional
blackmail, in other words they have to rise to the defence of democracy with
their lives. Therefore, in the interest of Sarva
Samaj,
the country and their respective states, they will have to place the
power in the Centre in the right hands, in other words in the hands of the
B.S.P. so that our party can frame its every policy on the principle of
Sarvjan Hitaiy and Sarvjan Sukhaiy in every
walk of life and make the lives of the Bahujan Samaj and the poor people of
upper caste society and other people engaged in various occupations
prosperous”.

            In the end, keeping
all this in view, I make this
“APPEAL” to the supporters, followers and
well-wishers of our party not to get carried away by alluring promises made in
the election manifesto of opposition parties and to act on the appeal of their
party alone and to certainly make all the B.S.P. candidates victorious in the
Lok Sabha general elections-2009 being held in the country now by pressing the
button facing the “Elephant” symbol of their own party.

 

-SD-

(Kumari Mayawati)

National President,

Bahujan Samaj Party

Queen
of the Untouchables (Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is the
Great Prabuddha Bharath (Scheduled Caste))will become the new Prime
Minister

Supporters of Mayawati Kumari, of the Bahujan Samaj Party

Mayawati’s supporters gather to hear her speak at an election rally. For the first
time her party is fighting every seat and she could emerge as the Prime Minister.


As a crimson sun set over this south
Indian temple town the Aboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudvipa, that is,
the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs)
gathered in their thousands to catch a first glimpse of their new champion –
and will be their future prime minister.

Protectors of lives of all beings, servants and manual labourers almost all came from the Aboriginal Inhabitants of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath (SC/STs)  are condemned  by the Invaders from Central Asia to a lifetime of poverty and
indignity
.

This night, however, they were being offered a vision of change – a vision,
perhaps, of how she would like to be seen as Prabuddha Bharath’s own Barack Obama. On a
stage before them, for the first time in this city, was Mayawati, a
53-year-old woman who could become Prabuddha Bharath’s first Aboriginal
Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath
(Scheduled Caste)
prime minister after parliamentary elections starting on Thursday.

“If I’m elected, I’ll make Prabuddha Bharath a role model for the world!” she told the
crowd, flanked by giant images of a blue elephant – the symbol of her
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).

Mayawati, who is unmarried and uses only one name, is already hugely popular
in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh – India’s most populous – where she
became chief minister in 2007 after a landslide victory in local elections.
She now hopes to replicate that success across India – hence this rally in
the southern state of Tamil Nadu, as far from Uttar Pradesh as is possible.

For the first time her party is contesting every seat in Prabuddha Bharath and, if it wins
more than 272, she could emerge as prime minister.

Suresh Mane, the BSP chief for south said, “We’re working for economic and social change. That’s why we call her
the Obama of India.” He predicted that the BSP, would become India’s first-biggest national party.

Mayawati’s strategy is simple but effective.

Her core supporters are India’s 165 million SC/STs, who make up 15 per cent of
the population and still suffer daily discrimination even though the
Constitution bans the caste system.

Mayawati’s early life was typical of her community. She was born in Delhi to a
poor telecommunications clerk and an illiterate housewife who had nine
children altogether.

She was unusual, however, in that her father took her to political rallies and  got her an education and find her
a job as a schoolteacher.

“As a SC woman she was born to be one of the most exploited lots in
the world,” said Ajoy Bose, who wrote a biography of Mayawati. “What drives
her is tremendous personal ambition to succeed – to be someone big.”

Mayawati joined the BSP when it was founded in 1984 by Kanshi Ram, became an MP in 1989 and
leader of the party in 2001. She also became India’s first SC chief
minister in 1995, in Uttar Pradesh and is now serving her fourth term in
that post. In power, she has made self-promotion into an art form, building
statues of Sants and Gurus of Bahujan Samaj.

One chapter of her autobiography, My Story of Struggle, is entitled:
“If People Call me a Super Chief Minister, what can I do?”. In 2007 she
proudly declared a fortune of £6.8 million, compared with £1.5 million in
2003, saying it was made up of “contributions” from her supporters.

She
needs Rs.25 Lakh crores, i.e., the entire Budget for equal didtribution
for the entire society after becoming the prime minister.

For SC/STs, however, such a Master Key will only  enhance their pride in seeing
one of their own kind strutting her stuff on the national stage.

“When SC/STs see this, they believe in Mayawati”.

Yet SC/STs alone are not enough to win Mayawati power.

In Uttar Pradesh, she has forged an alliance, therefore, with
Brahmins, the priestly caste at the top of the Hindu hierarchy.

Many Brahmins regard SC/STs as clean and loyal. However, they also feel
disenfranchised because they do not traditionally engage in business.

Mayawati is now trying to replicate that alliance in other states and reach
out to other disenfranchised groups, promising to represent all of the
poor.

It is now an  easy task to make the jump from regional to national politics.

To judge by the rally, she will do better.

Nevertheless, it seemed genuinely inspired and if she can merely establish a
presence in every state, she will head towards the prime
minister’s office.

A typical response came from Chinnasamy, a 42-year-old SC quarry worker,
who earns about £30 a month and supports a wife and two children.

“She can do something for me and  my
children,” he said. “She is our only hope.”

Below the poverty line

- 200 million estimated SC/STs in India

- 17% of the  population

- 110,000 registered cases of rape, murder and violence against SC/STs in 2005

- 38% of Indian state schools make SC/STs sit separately when eating

- 36% of rural SC/STs live below the poverty line

- 38% of urban SC/STs live below the poverty line

BSP in Bihar

PATNA: After several abortive bids, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is

finally hoping to enter Bihar through districts bordering UP.

“We are expecting to push our vote percentage in Bihar from six per

cent to 14 per cent,” said BSP media in-charge and spokesperson J N


Trivedi. he stressed that the rainbow coalition’ which catapulted the


party to power in UP would be replicated in Bihar.

The party has not only fielded candidates from all the 40 Lok Sabha
seats in the state, but also considers itself to be a serious bidder
in at least four parliamentary constituencies - Valmikinagar,
Gopalganj, Buxar and Sasaram - all located near the UP border.

So far UP CM Mayawati has addressed election meetings in Bhagalpur,

Pashchimi Champaran, Saran and Sasaram. At all her public meetings,


she has sought support from upper castes, particularly Brahmins. Not


suprisingly, out of the 40 candidates the party has fielded as many as


11 from the upper castes - five Brahmins and four Bhumihars
.

From here party’s No. 2 and architect of the Brahmin-SC/ST combination

in UP Satish, Chandra Mishra, takes over. From Friday, Mishra is going


to address 15 election meetings in Bihar including Siwan, Madhubani


and Valmikinagar, where the BSP has fielded Brahmin candidates.

The BSP has been trying to woo upper castes, particularly Brahmins,

since July 27, 2007 when it held a meeting at S K Memorial Hall here


in a bid to woo them to its fold in Bihar.

“The social and political condition in the state was ideal for

Brahmins in Bihar to change their political affiliation. Right after


the 1990s there has been Brahmin-bashing projecting it as the caste


responsible for everything wrong in the society. Even the Brahmin


leaders stopped defending the caste,” Trivedi said.



The party believes that it has already witnessed a marginal success in


wooing Brahmins in Bihar. In the Vikramganj parliamentary by-polls


held in December, 2007, the party fielded Balram Mishra, a Brahmin


candidate and managed to secure third place ahead of both CPI(ML)


candidate and Independent MLA Pradeep Joshi’s wife.

One of the most famous slogans raised by the BSP in the last Assembly

polls in UP was Brahmam Shankh Bajayga, Hathi Aage Barhta Jayega


(Brahmins will blow the conch Shank and the elephant (BSP poll symbol)


will march ahead).”



The party hopes the same slogan will also pay dividend in Bihar.


However, unlike UP the party has a weak organization in Bihar. Though


it has won assembly seats in the state, its MLAs have been vulnerable


to defection. But, as party leaders point out, it has nothing to lose


and only gain in vote terms of increase per centage. This could mean a


couple of seats to it in Bihar.
