Thank
you for sharing the news of Budhism, ” The Best religioun in The World
Award”.It was fascinating to read that the catholics, Muslims and Jews
agreed to it.
 
It is sad that the nobody from Budha’s homeland gave any comments
to Media, it is not that there were none from Hindus, Sikhs or jains.
The Brahamanism has ruled India so long that ,it can’t create a culture
of rationalism, rather it continue  perpetuate conservatism/ orthodoxy/
a backward mindset rather than a progressive thinking enen though the
world as advanced in thinking of its social values.
 
Never mind, We are greatful  to Our Babasaheb who showed us the
path towards Budhism.And each of us, in whatever way, we can, must
contribute to the Dhamma prachar.
 
Somebody shoulds make a poster  of this news and distribute freely
so that younger Indians who never had the exposure to Lord Budha and
His teaching, can explore , even as a part of academic curriculum as
indivuduals if not at mass level.

Subject: Buddhism won “The Best Religion In The World Award”

Very interesting to read this …..

Buddhism won “The Best Religion In The World” award 15 Jul 2009, Tribune de Geneve
 
The Geneva-based International Coalition for the
Advancement of Religious and Spirituality (ICARUS) has bestowed “The
Best Religion In the World” award this year on the Buddhist Community.

This special award was voted on by an international round table of
more than 200 religious leaders from every part of the spiritual
spectrum. It was fascinating to note that many religious leaders voted
for Buddhism rather than their own religion although Buddhists actually
make up a tiny minority of ICARUS membership. Here are the comments by
four voting members:

Jonna Hult, Director of Research for ICARUS said “It wasn’t a surprise to me that Buddhism won Best
Religion
in the World, because we could find literally not one single instance
of a war fought in the name of Buddhism, in contrast to every other
religion that seems to keep a gun in the closet just in case God makes
a mistake. We were hard pressed to even find a Buddhist that had ever
been in an
army. These people practice what they preach to an extent we simply could not document with any other spiritual tradition.” 

A
Catholic Priest, Father Ted O’Shaughnessy said from Belfast ,  “As much
as I love the Catholic Church, it has always bothered me to no end that
we preach love in our scripture yet then claim to know God’s will when
it comes to killing other humans. For that reason, I did have to cast
my vote for the Buddhists.”

A Muslim Cleric Tal Bin Wassad agreed from Pakistan via his
translator. “While I am a devout Muslim, I can see how much anger and
bloodshed is channeled into religious expression rather than dealt with
on a personal level. The Buddhists have that figured out.” Bin Wassad,
the ICARUS voting member for Pakistan ’s Muslim community continued,
“In fact, some of my best friends are Buddhist.”

And Rabbi Shmuel Wasserstein said from Jerusalem, “Of course, I
love Judaism, and I think it’s the greatest religion in the world. But
to be honest, I’ve been practicing Vipassan a meditation every day
before minyan (daily Jewish prayer) since 1993. So I get it.”


However, there was one snag - ICARUS couldn’t find anyone to
give the award to. All the Buddhists they called kept saying they
didn’t want the award.


When asked why the Burmese Buddhist
community refused the award, Buddhist monk Bhante Ghurata Hanta said
from Burma, “We are grateful for the acknowledgement, but we give this
award to all humanity, for Buddha nature lies within each of us.”
Groehlichen went on to say “We’re going to keep calling around until we
find a Buddhist who will accept it. We’ll let you know when we do.”

Press Information Bureau
(C.M. Information Campus)
Information & Public Relations Department, U.P.
C.M. orders magisterial enquiry into Amethi incident
S.P. Sultanpur transferred and S.O. sent to Police Lines
Lucknow: July 15, 2009
Taking serious note of hooliganism of Congress Party workers
yesterday for power cut in Amethi, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms.
Mayawati has ordered for magisterial inquiry into this incident
immediately. She has also ordered for the transfer of Sultanpur S.P. for
not handling the situation properly and directed to send concerning S.O.
to Police lines considering him responsible. Besides, she also directed to
remove P.A.C. personnel posted on the spot on the day of incident
recruiting it elsewhere. She has strongly criticised the persons who tried
to disturb the law and order in Amethi.
The Chief Minister said that stern action would be taken against
the person found responsible to disturb law and order, whether he was
affiliated to any political party or he was government employee. She
said that her government knew very well to handle the situation of law
and order.
Ms. Mayawati said that present Government did not discriminate
with any district or area, but Congress and B.J.P. always believed in the
politics of discrimination due to vested political interests. She said that
State Government never believed that politics should come in the way
of development programmes and all decisions of her Government were
being taken in transparent and impartial manner.
The Chief Minister said that electricity problem was the outcome
of earlier Central and State Governments. If Congress Party instead of
doing gimmicks and drama had taken the development of the State
seriously, then State would not have faced such a poor situation
regarding development works and the people would not have forced to
come on the streets for issues like power cut after the sixty years of
independence.
Ms. Mayawati said that Congress Party should ask for apology
from the people for ignoring the development of the State and it should
also accept that only negligible development took place in the State
during its years of misrule and corruption prevailed in its regime. That
was why the people of the State were still devoid of basic facilities.
The Chief Minister said that her Government had taken several
steps to solve the problem of electricity crisis despite its limited
resources. The works started by State Government to end electricity
crisis would provide results in two years and the people of the State
would get rid of the problem of power cut forever, she added.

Chief Minister urges Finance Commission to increase
share of states from net receipts of central taxes from

Finance Commission should stick to
Article 280(3) of the Constitution
— Chief Minister

Norms imposed by Central
Government should not be binding: Mayawati

Population in 2001 be made basis of division
of financial resources instead of population in 1971 : Mayawati

C.M. asks 13th Finance Commission to recommend
Rs. 80,000 crore special package for development of
Poorvanchal and Bundelkhand and backward areas

C.M. urges Finance Commission to make recommendation for
special allocations to implement reforms in energy sector

Centre asked to arrange more funds for
development of important religious places like
Mathura, Varanasi, Vindhyachal, Ayodhya, Allahabad etc.

Chief Minister’s meeting with 13th Finance Commission
Lucknow : July 15, 2009

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati, in the light of the
serious problems faced by the State and also considering its huge
requirements, has requested Finance Commission to increase the
share of the states from the net receipts of central taxes from existing
30.5 per cent to at least 50 per cent. She said that there was a need
to give highest importance to the objective of fulfilment of the actual
needs of the states and removal of economic backwardness, while
devolving financial resources between the States. She said that the
States were facing huge challenges like general administration and
development works and considering that the share of the States
should be increased. She also requested to sanction Rs. 80,000 crore
package recommended by the Samra Committee for drought-stricken
Bundelkhand, flood-hit Poorvanchal and also for other backward areas
of the State. Besides, considering the power crisis of the State, she
also demanded special allotment from the Commission for
implementing reforms in the energy sector.

The Chief Minister was holding discussions with the team of 13th
Finance Commission led by its Chairman Dr. Vijay Kelkar at her 5-
Kalidas Marg official residence here today. The other members of the
team included Mr. B.K. Chaturvedi, Dr. Indira Rajaraman, Prof. Atul
Sharma, Dr. Sanjiv Mishra and Secretary Mr. Sumit Bose. She said
that the guiding principles of the Constitution and basic principle of
‘inclusive growth’ of the 11th Five Year Plan, which have been adopted
as ‘Sarvajan Hitai, Sarvajan Sukhai’ by the Uttar Pradesh Government
can be translated into reality if highest importance was given to
fulfilment of the actual needs of the states and removal of economic
backwardness, while deciding about the devolution of financial
resources between the States. Referring to schemes like Savitri Bai
Phule Shiksha Madad Yojna and Mahamaya Ashirwad Yojna introduced
by the State Government for providing education to girls and also to
check discrimination against them, the C.M. requested the Commission
to provide special assistance for the education and health sector.

The Chief Minister said that ‘Disaster Mitigation Fund’ had been
arranged at National, State and District levels to meet the challenges
of natural calamities. Considering the necessary capital investment in
it, the Central Government should contribute at least 75 per cent in
the state level fund. She also requested the Finance Commission to set
up a new ‘Disaster Mitigation Fund’ under Disaster Management Act.

Ms. Mayawati said that Central Government’s directive to take
1971 census as a basis for division of financial resources was a
departure from reality. She emphasised that the population of U.P.
(according to the 2001 census) should be taken into account by the
Finance Commission. She said that the implementation of the
recommendations of Sixth Pay Commission had caused an annual
burden of Rs. 6,000 crore on the state exchequer and about Rs.
13,500 crore are to be paid as arrears, which had caused financial
imbalance. She said that the 50 per cent of this additional expenditure
should be reimbursed by the Central resources.

Drawing the attention of the Commission towards the power
crisis faced by the State, the Chief Minister said that the previous
governments did not take any decision to ensure fresh investment in
the energy sector and owing to it the power crisis deepened further.
Besides, the Central Government had not taken any positive action, so
far on the State’s request for providing additional power and resources
from Central pool to deal with the situation. She said that the present
government had prepared a detailed action plan to increase the power
generation and improve its transmission and distribution. The work on
it is going on at a quick pace. Under this scheme, the current power
generation of 6600 M.W. would be enhanced to about 12,000 M.W. by
the year 2012. Besides, action has been initiated on projects to create
32,000 M.W. power capacity in next five years and work on three
projects would begin in this month itself. She also requested the
Finance Commission to make recommendation for special allotment to
implement reforms in the energy sector.

The Chief Minister apprised the Commission that there was a
need to further expand and improve the quality of the services of
education and medical sector for the development of the State.
Therefore, the State Government has accorded top priority to both
these sectors and necessary resources have been allocated for them.
But, considering the limited resources available with the State, the
cooperation of the Finance Commission was needed for these sectors.
She said that the State Government had demanded a subsidy of Rs.
3,810 crore and Rs. 3,750 crore for education and medical sectors
respectively. She also demanded Rs. 706.03 crore financial assistance
for the construction of new building of Lucknow Bench of the High
Court.

Ms. Mayawati said that a large number of devotees from within
the country and from foreign countries visit important religious places
like Mathura, Varanasi, Vindhyachal, Ayodhya, Allahabad etc. Though
the State Government, for the first time, has sanctioned special
amount for the development of these areas, but the Central
Government should provide additional funds for the development of all
these religious places.

Referring to the efforts made to improve the women literacy rate
in the State, the Chief Minister said that the same had improved not
less than by two-fold over the national average. Besides, the life
expectancy of the people and the child mortality rate of the State had
improved more than the national average, but we have to cover
distance and for that more funds were required.
The Chief Minister said that owing to large scale difference
between the responsibilities, works and the rights to arrange
resources, responsibility had been assigned to finance commission
according to the provision of the Constitution for division and
distribution of Central taxes between Federation and the States, but it
was a matter of great concern for the States that the role of finance
commission was gradually becoming less in this distribution. On the
other hand, the ratio of transferring the resources to the States
through the Union Ministries and the Planning Commission had been
increased. Besides, the amount of centrally sponsored schemes on the
subjects of State list was continuously increasing by Central
Government according to their convenience. In this way, more and
more resources of the State went for fulfilling the State share. As a
result, on the one side, the States did not have the availability of
resources for the programmes concerning their needs and priorities,
while on the other side, the States were forced to make expenditure
according to the intention and priority of the Central Government
despite its limited resources.

The Chief Minister said that at the time of constituting Finance
Commission, the Central Government directive that the Finance
Commission would also keep in mind several other necessities of the
Central Government including the necessities of expenditure of Central
scheme at the time of giving recommendation, was not in accordance
of law. She said that it was the responsibility of Central Government to
make expenditure under central schemes on the head of central list
and concurrent list, but the increasing expenditure of central schemes
in the head of state list was not justified central responsibility. She
requested to Finance Commission to consider on this serious subject
essentially and recommend in this regard to a certain limit, otherwise
the Constitutional intention would not be followed regarding Finance
Commission. She said that for the transfer of financial resources of the
States, the Constitution never thought of planning commission. She
said the State Government was of the definite opinion that Finance
Commission should give recommendations after examining in the limit
of schedule 280 (3) of the Constitution. The norms symbolised
otherwise by the Central Government could not be forced, she added.
On this occasion, Cabinet Secretary Mr. Shashank Shekhar
Singh, Chief Secretary Mr. Atul Kumar Gupta, Additional Cabinet
Secretary Mr. Vijay Shankar Pandey, IDC Mr. Anup Mishra, Principal
Secretary Finance Mr. Manjeet Singh, Principal Secretary Home
Kunwar Fateh Bahadur, Principal Secretaries to C.M. Mr. Netram, Mr.
Shailesh Krishna, Mr. J.N. Chamber, Mr. Ravindra Singh, Secretaries to
C.M. Mr. Navneet Sahgal, Mr. Kamran Rizvi and D.G.P. Mr. Vikram
Sigh were present, besides other senior officers.

Afterwards, the Cabinet Secretary Mr. Shashank Shekhar Singh
while giving information regarding development programmes being run
in the State in a meeting of senior officers held at Yojna Bhawan under
the Chairmanship of the 13th Finance Commission member Mr. B.K.
Chatturvedi, said that the progress of these programmes were
hampered due to Lok Sabha elections. But targets of the development
would be achieved in a time bound manner. He said that the
government had given special emphasis on public-private partnership
in development works in the State to ensure partnership of private
sector in the process of development. The officers of Finance, Energy,
Primary Education, Health and Home departments gave presentations
in this meeting, after which Urban and Rural Local Bodies, Panchayati
Raj department, representatives of industry associations and political
parties also interacted with Finance Commission.

C.M. invites leaders of political parties to put
constructive ideas before Finance Commission Team
13th Finance Commission on 3-day State visit from July 14

Lucknow : July 12, 2009


The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati has invited

leaders of various political parties to put constructive ideas before the
members of the team of 13th Finance Commission for economic and
social development of the state. She has taken this initiative to plead
for more and more share of central taxes and also to get more
subsidy amount. It may be recalled that the Central Government
would release allocations under these heads on the recommendations
of Finance Commission.

The Chief Minister requested the representatives of political

parties to draw the attention of the members of the 13th Finance
Commission that it should not assess State’s allocation on the basis
of 1971 census, but on the basis of 2001 census.

Ms. Mayawati also said that the representatives of political

parties should plead with the Finance Commission that the Central
Government should share 50 per cent of the burden caused by the
implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay
Commission. Besides, the share of the State from the actual receipts
of the central taxes should be increased to 50 per cent, so that
enough financial resources were available for the development of the
State.

The Chief Minister has also appealed to the representatives of

the political parties to press for special packages for the flood-hit
eastern U.P. and drought-hit Bundelkhand region. The eastern U.P.
faces floods every year. She said that in the current perspective, the
subsidy amount, being provided for strengthening the financial
condition of the urban and rural local bodies, should be increased
considerably. Therefore, the representatives of the political parties
should raise these problems before the members of the Planning
Commission and request to increase the funds.

The Members of the 13th Finance Commission would visit

Lucknow between 14 and 16 July. During this visit, they would
interact with the representatives of various political parties at Yojna
Bhawan on July 15.

Central Government should provide remaining Rs.
1012.04 crore to Uttar Pradesh under pre and post-tenth
scholarship scheme for backward class students
CM writes letter to PM in this connection

Lucknow : July 11, 2009


The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati has

requested to provide required amount from the Centre to
the State Government for the scholarship of backward class
students of the State. In a letter, written to Prime Minister,
she said that the amount, which have to made available to
the State Government by the Central Government
according to guidelines was not being given since last two
years. She said that it became clear that Central
Government was ignoring 54 per cent backward caste
students of the State like ST/ST people. She said that the
State Government was providing scholarships of last
financial year 2008-09 and current financial year 2009-10
to backward class students from its limited resources.

Ms. Mayawati said that State Government was

providing scholarships to backward class students according
to the guidelines of Union Ministry of Social Justice and
Empowerment. She said that for pre-tenth and post-tenth
scholarship scheme, Govt. of India makes available 50 per
cent and 100 per cent money respectively. Scholarships
were being distributed to all eligible students by the State
Government according to the norms fixed for these
schemes.

The Chief Minister said that it was a matter of regret

that the required amount from the Central Government for
these schemes according to the fixed guidelines of Union
Government was not being made available to the State
Government. She said that under pre-tenth scholarship
scheme, an amount of Rs. 470.34 crore had been
distributed by the State Government to 1,56,31,500 O.B.C.
students in the year of 2008-09, for which State
Government had to get Rs. 235.16 crore form Union
Government as Central share. But only Rs. 8.95 crore had
been made available by the Central Government under this
head.

Ms. Mayawati said that Rs. 226.21 crore were still to

be received from the Central Government under the head of
pre-tenth scholarship as Central share. She said that an
amount of Rs. 242.21 crore was required for 1,61,00,000
students in the year of 2009-10. In this way, under pretenth
scholarship scheme, a sum of Rs. 468.42 crore had to
be given to the State Government as the remaining amount
of 2008-09 and current financial year 2009-10.

The Chief Minister has also written a letter to the

Prime Minister drawing his attention towards the post-tenth
scholarship scheme for backward class students in the
State. She said that under this scheme, the State
Government had distributed Rs. 135.88 crore to about
11,84,401 students in the year of 2008-09. She regretted
that only Rs. 39.63 crore had been made available to the
State Government by Union Government against the
distributed amount. She said that Rs. 96.25 crore was due
from Govt. of India as Central share and under the fees
assistance head Rs. 151.49 crore as financial assistance
had been given to the students.

Ms. Mayawati said that under post-tenth scholarship

scheme including fees assistance head, a sum of Rs. 247.74
crore was still to be made available to the State
Government by the Union Government for 2008-09, which
had been paid by the State Government by its limited
financial resources. She said that about Rs. 139.95 crore as
scholarship and Rs. 155.93 crore as fees assistance was
required for 12,19,933 students in 2009-10 from Union
Government.

The Chief Minister said that an amount of Rs. 543.62

crore had to be made available to the State Government
under post-tenth scholarship scheme including both
financial years.

Ms. Mayawati said that Prime Minister should direct

the concerning ministry to make available a sum of Rs.
1012.04 crore to the State Government for pre-tenth and
post-tenth scholarship scheme for the years of 2008-09 and
2009-10 for backward class students.

Orders to hand-over missing
Ayodhya case documents to CBI

Lucknow : July 10, 2009


The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms.

Mayawati said that the State Government had
taken seriously the missing of files pertaining to
Sri Ram Janam Bhumi—Babri Masjid. She said that
State Government had today ordered the Home
Department to hand-over the inquiry of this case
to C.B.I.

The Chief Minister was addressing media

persons at her official residence here today.
Ms. Mayawati said that in the case of Sri Ram
Janam Bhumi—Babri Masjid, the High Court had
asked for the seven documents of 1949, which
might had been in 23 files. But, the Home
Department had the apprehension that the
concerning files were with the then Officer On
Special Duty, late Subhash Bhan Sadh.
Unfortunately, the officer was killed in a train
accident, when he was going to appear before the
Liberhan Commission in the year of 2000.
The Chief Minister said that these 23 files
might have gone missing between 1991-2000.
She said that during the time of accident BJP
Government was ruling in the State.

Dear Friends,
 
Jaibheem.
 
Posting
this excellent , informative and analytical piece of article by Brother
Abhay Dongre for benefit of all those people who are blinded by the
seeds of hatred, ignorance, anger, jealousy and antipathy in their
minds towards the person who saved the Ambedkarite movement from being
swallowed by bramhnical Congress, Sahab Kanshiram - founder of DS-4,
BAMCEF and BSP. As editor of Mahanayak wrote in a recent editorial,
Kanshiram Sahab was that “alamast fakir” who
did not have money to buy a shirt but could run 22 weekly, fortnightly
news papers at a time,  trying to take Babasaheb to every Dalit-Bahujan
Bastis and Adivasi Padas, across India.
 
 
 
What BSP and KanshiRam have done for the Untouchables
 
By Abhay Dongre
 
“Our
ultimate goal is to become the governing class to rule this country”.
Go and write this goal on the walls of your houses so that every day
you will remember it”. — Dr B. R. Ambedkar
 

Dear All
               Jaibhim
                              
It gives me great pleasure and confidence while writing a sequel to my
earlier mail. The conspicuous silence of the learned readers specially
the so called hardcore Maharashtrian Ambedkarites raises serious doubts
in my mind whether we really want to become rulers of this country or
just continue enjoying slavery under the ruling class.
 
Born
on March 15, 1934 in a humble Raidasi Sikh (dalit) family in Khawaspur
village of Ropar district in Punjab , Kanshi Ram earned his B Sc degree
and joined the Explosive Research and Development Laboratory at Kirkee
near Pune. He protested on the Job because the Management refused to
grant “Holiday” on Ambedkar Jayanti. His contention was when there is a
declared holiday on each and every small festival, Gandhi Jayanti,
Tilak’s Birthday etc etc why not on the birth anniversary of the chief
architect of the Indian Constitution.  He took a vow on that day that
“Jab tak main is desh se chutti dene walon ki chuttin nahi  kar deta,
main chain se nahin baithunga”. He never rested afterwards.
 
He
worked initially with the RPI but was disillusioned by its working. He
founded ‘BAMCEF’, the All India Backwards and Minority communities
Employees Federation on dec-06, 1973 , with the aim of organizing the
backward and minority government employees for he knew that a mere
small percentage of scheduled castes cannot make the difference. He
also knew that any movement needs resources like time, money and brain
and the government employees could provide it all. He organized them
with an appeal to “pay back to the society” and many plunged into the
movement with missionary zeal which spread throughout the country
within short period of time. Incidentally many among them were
Maharashtrian Ambedkarites from areas nearby Nagpur who supported
KanshiRam right from the beginning of his Movement.
 
The
creative genius of KanshiRam can be seen by the names he coined to the
various organizations like ‘BAMCEF’, DS-4( Dalit Shoshit Samaj
Sangharsh Samiti) or the catchy slogans like ” Jiski Jitni Sankhya
Bhari Uski utni Bahagidari”. His idea of Bahujan, a effective and well
thought strategy to organize around 6000 castes in India dominated by
the evil effects of Brahminism since thousands of years can be
attributed as one of the most Pioneering and Novel idea of the
millennium.
He set an example of selflessness, sacrifice,
simplicity and devotion in public life.He  took a oath to remain a
bachelor and to never visit his village until his mission to free the
oppressed and marginalized India from the clutches of ruling class is
fulfilled. He formed DS-4 in 1981 and within three years transformed it
into a full fledged political party ” BSP” -Bahujan Samaj Party with
Elephant as symbol, on 14th April i.e. Ambedkar’s Birthday with a
slogan ” Vote Hamara Raj Tumhara-Nahin Chalega Nahin Chalega”
 
Starting
with a very few seats in UP Assembly and Loksabha the BSP formed its
government in Uttar Pradesh, for the fourth time. The most populous
state of India, almost equal to six European nations, the state which
has given maximum Number of Prime Ministers to this country and about
which is said that the road to Parliament i.e. New Delhi passes through
the state of UP has the political heir of KanshiRam, the Iron
Lady-Mayawati as the chief Minister. He spread the awareness about the
evil effects of “Pune Pact” which gave rise to the ” Chamcha Yug”.
 The

master strategist himself KanshiRam was the most sought politician in
India even when he openly accused the two mainstream political parties,
the congress and BJP as Sapnath and Nagnath. His extraordinary
organizational capabilities and one man command safeguarded the party
from internal splits and also insulated it from outsider horse trading.
Still if somebody left the party his reaction was “Jis kisine BSP
chodin hain ya BSP ke sath Gaddari ki hain, usne kabhin dubara sansad
ya vidhansabha ka muh nahin dekha hain”.
 
While
Dr Ambedkar wrote ” Who were the shudras”, “What congress and Gandhi
have done to the untouchables” ” Annihilation of Castes” and volumes of
books, KanshiRam translated Ambedkarism into workable philosophy
through appropriate strategies and tactics and built the powerful ‘BSP’
the third largest national political party in India. If KanshiRam was
not born Ambedkarism would have been rotting in the Bookshelves of so
called Ambedkarite Literates, dalit poets, scholars and bunch of high
class babus who after taking the benefit of reservation given by
Ambedkar feel shy of even disclosing their identity of being a
scheduled caste. While the Ambedkarites in Maharashtra stored, read and
wrote tonnes of books on Ambedkar, KanshiRam effectively spread the
idea of Ambedkarism throughout India.
 
KanshiRam
Said “I will not merely sit quite in anticipation that some day or the
other caste will be annihilated automatically; but as long as the
“caste” is alive, I will continue to use it in the interest of my
society”. He successfully used the caste weapon earlier used by upper
castes in favour of oppressed castes. His idea behind the formation is
ample clear from his observation” What is more important? To become
MLA/MP or to run the   movement of Babasaheb? According to me it was
more important to run the movement of Babasaheb than to become MLA/MP.
Therefore I chose to run the movement. For a moment a thought came to
my mind that to run the movement effectively we should make our people
MLAs/MPs. But the important question was which is the party that will
give us MLAs/MPs who will also run the movement of Babasahab. After a
lot of thought I reached to a conclusion that such MLAs/MPs can be
elected only through our own party.”
 
The Maharashtrian Ambedkarites:
                                                                  
While the people in Maharashtra fought around 25 years to rename a
university in Dr Ambedkar’s Name, the BSP By capturing the power in UP
has formed not just one university but many universities for which the
people from Maharashtra have been fighting for long time like  Shahu
Maharaj university at Kanpur, In 1996 Mahatma Phule university and Dr
Babasaheb Ambedkar university. Apart from this it acquired   200 acre
land at Noida for Gautam Buddha Univesity. It created 17 new districts
to fasten the process of development and more importantly to honour our
heroes by giving their names to these newly formed districts.
He
said “I have learned a lot from the people from Maharashtra. I have
learned a half lesson for running the Ambedkari  movement from Dr
Babasaheb Ambedkar. The other half lesson I have learnt from the Mahars
of Maharashtra. I have learnt from Babasahab how to run the movement.
And from Mahars of Maharashtra I have learned how not to run the
movement. To successfully run any movement it is not only sufficient to
know how to run the movement but also it is necessary to know how not
to run the movement. If you do not know how not to run the movement
then you will never be able to know how to run it”.
He
said “Now I consider it my responsibility to empower my people so that
they will not ask for reservations but they will become capable to give
reservations to others. It is easy to understand and say this thing but
it is not easy to make it happen.   Who is capable of giving
reservations? Only the ruling class of people can give reservations to
others. Even to enable your own society capable of reaping the benefits
and to protect their interests, you have to become a ruling class.
Therefore we have to prepare ourselves in the direction of becoming a
ruling class in India. We have to become the rulers. It is the solution
on most of our problems”.
Today the UP government of BSP is
capable of giving reservations not only to scheduled castes but also to
economically weaker upper castes thereby completely shutting up the
mouths of those talking about economic criteria etc against
reservation.
 
The
Historic “The new Reservation initiatives” and Public Private
Partnership in which UP government is the first in India to implement
reservation in private sector.
A full page Advertisement in all
newspapers was enough to send strong signals to the industry and centre
that the day is not far when everybody has to follow it. Also when
psu’s can be privatized it can also happen vice-versa when BSP comes to
power at centre. While the RPI has been demanding reservation in
private sector since 1974 with no cognizance being given to its demand
and ironically more and more public sector undertakings being
privatized, it continued to share power with congress.
This write
up shall be too long to cover all the extraordinary measures taken by
Mayawati in the short span of 10 months. Those ill informed
Ambedkarites accusing her of sacrificing the interests of Scheduled
castes should carefully see the historic decision of creating 1 lakh
jobs for Valmiky Community in each village. A bold decision to refuse
Reliance Retail’s  outlets in UP which no other state government could
afford to take is a strong signal to capitalists that nothing can be
allowed which leads to poor becoming more poor and rich becoming more
wealthier.
 While
in the 1972 Loksabha elections RPI leader Shri Dadasaheb Gaikawad had a
meeting with Mohan Dharia of Congress at Pune for a seat sharing
agreement. The outcome of the meeting was 425:1 i.e. 425 Congress and
RPI-1 “YUTI JHALI”. Today BSP has the power to dictate its terms be it
for any cause and even the first woman president of India could not
have been selected without the support of BSP. Today there is a beeline
of candidates from all castes, religions, sects for BSP tickets and the
presence of its cadres and supporters can be seen right from Kashmir to
Kanyakumari.
 
 
 
The Iron Lady:
                           
The BSP and Movement started by KanshiRam has given to the untouchables
‘Mayawati’ the iron lady, the fourth time CM of India’s most populace
State, the title of most Powerful political leader of the times much
ahead of Sonia Gandhi, L.K.Advani, Vajpaye, Bal Thackrey etc etc. The
full majority government of BSP in UP today has become a model of good
governance and effective leadership working for ‘Sarvajan Hitay and
Sarvajan Sukhay”
One has to salute the BSP leadership for its
meticulous mobilization of different castes and religious groups. That
is why 64 Dalits, 54 OBCs, 29 Muslims, 21 Brahmins, 18 Thakurs, even
few Vaishyas have won from BSP ticket. We should be proud of the fact
that we are witness to a historical process in which a political party
led and dominated by the Dalits has come to power on in its own,
without the support of a mainstream party. With complete media, the
Superstars, the capitalists, the industrialists on one side and single
lady with organization and leadership skills on other side, Mayawati
shocked everyone when results of 2007 elections were declared. While
other parties had booklets of Manifesto’s running into pages, BSP had
no Manifesto.
Her
firm belief is that a “Samta-Mulak Samaj” (a society based on equality
– politically, socially, and economically) can be established when
there will be “proportionate empowerment. ”
International Magazine
from US ‘NewsWeek’ ranked Mayawati  among top eight women leaders
worldwide who have reached the top despite all odds. A national daily
in India recently placed  Mayawati as the most powerful politician in
India much above Advani and Sonia Gandhi and as everyone knows none of
the newspaper is controlled by BSP nor any it has control over any TV
channel. The BSP is always media averse. Yet there are TV channels,
newspapers surveys ranking her as No-1 or so with many even projecting
her as Prime Minister of India. Even the International Media has taken
the cognizance of the growing power of a lady from an Untouchable
caste.
The Critics:
                      
KanshiRam himself never bothered about his critics and as a matter of
fact,all political parties essentially did the same but they feigned
decency and decorum. What they did surreptitiously, KanshiRam did
openly and thus exposed the prevailing double standards in politics. It
is interesting to note the people who accused him of political
opportunism and unreliability repeatedly sought alliances with him even
after his alleged misdemeanor. Those accusing Mayawati of forging an
alliance with Brahmins need to revisit the blueprint of RPI which
Babasaheb himself prepared, the number of Brahmin leaders he worked
with and those who showed willingness to join his political party.
“According
to the constitution of RPI the party was not tied to any particular
dogma or ideology such as communism or socialism, Gandhism or any other
ism. The party was prepared to adopt any plan of social and economic
betterment of the people irrespective of its origin and provided it is
consistent with its principles. Its outlook is not purely rational and
modern but also empiricist and academic”. Moreover one can very well
see that it is not the dalits in UP who were touching the feet of
Brahmins, it were the Brahmin MLA’s and leaders who are in a race and
queuing up  to touch the feet of Iron Lady.
 
 
The Leaders from other Parties:

                                                               
While the Congress has the largest number of Scheduled Caste leaders at
present right from daughter of Jagjivan Ram miss Meira Kumar, Mata
Prasad, Sushil Kumar Shinde etc, there is Ramvilas Paswan who is always
with any ruling party provided he is made a minister, Bangaroo Laxman
in BJP etc.  None of these leaders have been honest enough to address
the problems faced by untouchables.
 
 The grand historic rally
of Mayawati at Shivajipark, Dadar has certainly sent shockwaves across
the untouchable agents of congress who still continue to use
Ambedkarite movement as their source of livelihood.
 
 The Maharashtrian
Ambedkarites wanted the Sun to rise; there is no doubt about that, but
they wished that the Sun should rise after hearing the sound of their
cock. As the Sun rose in Uttar Pradesh, without hearing the voice of
cock from Maharashtra, the people from Maharashtra pretended that there
is no sunrise.
 
The organisations like “BAMCEF” started by
KanshiRam have also split into various groups. While there seems to be
no reason for BAMCEF to be headed by different leaders to exist when
the original one is still giving direct results. Here again come into
picture the Maharashtrian Ambedkarites who also happen to head the two
main factions of BAMCEF. While one faction organized the statewise
conference in Maharashtra with a topic dedicated to challenge the BSP’s
strategy of forming an alliance with Brahmins the other aims at
creating a pressure group or force which shall come on streets. The
former faced the wrath of a dynamic dalit Beauracrat in Mumbai who
termed them as “Intellectually Bankrupt”. Confusing the already
confused minds? Those questioning Mayawati arrange conferences with
topics as “Belagam hoti Nyayapalika ko Lagam Kaise Lagayi Jain?  Don’t
they know that it is the Parliament and the elected representatives who
can stop the judicial activism?
 
 With
every TOM DICK AND HARRY questioning Mayawati, the grassroot BSP and
BAMCEF cadres of KanshiRam and Mayawati are busy preparing for
Mission-2009 when they wish to see Mayawati as the first Dalit Prime
Minister of world’s largest democracy.
 
One thing is sure that
the BSP, KanshiRam and Mayawati  have raised a ray of hope in millions
of suppressed and marginalized sections of the society that there is at
least one party which can make a difference in their lives. Whether the
formula used by BSP is called “Social Engineering or Social
Transformation” , whether the critics call it caste politics which each
and every political party does in India, the dalits in India cannot
afford to miss this historical opportunity. As a journalist from south
rightly pointed “The question is not what Mayawati can do for dalits,
but what  dalits can do for themselves when she is around”.

Mayawati to Rahul: Set your own house in order




Tags:

Lucknow



(Source: IANS)
Published: Sat, 18 Jul 2009 at 20:21 IST

Lucknow:
Continuing the verbal sparring with the Congress, Uttar Pradesh Chief
Minister Mayawati Saturday hit out at Congress general secretary Rahul
Gandhi for criticising her government and said the Congress should
“first set its own house in order before accusing others”.


Gandhi’s support for state Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi, who was
arrested and sent to judicial custody for her remarks against the chief
minister, has infuriated Mayawati further.

“It would have been better if Rahul had commented on the ‘pavitra’
(holy) book in which Joshi has made disparaging remarks against senior
Congress leaders,” she said.



The book “Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna”, co-authored by Joshi and on the
life of her father who was a chief minister, reportedly has passages
attacking late prime minister Indira Gandhi and other Congress leaders.






Targeting “yuvraj” (prince) Gandhi for criticising the state’s
development, Mayawati said: “After independence, the Congress ruled
Uttar Pradesh for nearly 40 years, but in terms of development we have
done much more than the Congress in our two years.






“In terms of carrying out development in the state, Congress is far
behind than BSP. It is to be noticed that owing to lack of development
in the state, large-scale migration had taken place from Uttar Pradesh
when the Congress ruled the state, as there was no development here.”






While Rahul Gandhi Friday asked his party workers to work for the poor,
Mayawati said: “The Congress in Uttar Pradesh has just failed to work
as per the expectations of the public. Bet it Muslims, Dalits, people
from backward classes or the poor from upper castes… the Congress has
not bothered to work seriously (to improve) their living standards.”



Gandhi had accused the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government of
diverting developmental funds for setting up memorials to Mayawati. She
replied: “I want to ask the Congress leaders whether they have not
built memorials in memory of their leaders.

“The amount spent by BSP government on parks and statues is far less
than that spent on Rajghat in Delhi,” she said, referring to the
memorial for Mahatma Gandhi.





Accusing the Congress of “buying votes” of the poor to win elections,
Mayawati said: “By accepting huge amounts of money (from corporates),
the Congress drafts policies in their favour and then uses the money to
lure poor people.



“The Congress (-led central government) recently hiked petrol and
diesel prices just to recover the money it spent on buying votes.”






Mayawati announced a nationwide campaign against the policies of the Congress-lead central government from July 22.






Commenting on the BSP’s outside support to the Congress-led government,
she said: “We will continue to support the central government, but the
Congress high command should keep a strict vigil on some of its leaders
and others who are spreading false rumours in this regard.”






She indicated Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh and Samajwadi
Party general secretary Amar Singh could be the ones behind the
rumours.






“We gave support to the Congress only to keep the communal forces from
power and also to keep a check on those parties that could blackmail it
in lieu of their support.”






Mayawati blamed the Congress for power shortage in the state and said
efforts were on to solve the crisis. “If all goes well, by 2014 people
in the state will permanently get rid of power cuts.”


BSP
Chief Mayawati has added yet another chapter to her ongoing feud with the
Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi. Speaking at a media gathering to
outline the progress the BSP has made in the last two years, Mayawati said her
party had done more for Uttar Pradesh than the Congress could ever hope to
accomplish.

A day after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi dubbed her
government as “non-operational”, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on
Saturday (July 18) hit back accusing the UPA government of being responsible for
the state’s dismal power scenario and released a “white paper” on the
issue.

Answering Rahul’s dig at installation of statues and memorials
by her government, she claimed the money spent for them had not affected
development work and the expenditure for these constructions was just a
“fraction” of what was spent for Raj Ghat, memorial for Mahatma Gandhi, in
Delhi.

On the charge of lack of development specially those levelled
by Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati told reporters in Lucknow that she has asked her
officials to send a copy of a booklet containing details of development works
undertaken by her govenment to all Congress MP’s and MLA’s starting from
“the

prince of Congress”.

“After reading this booklet, Rahul
Gandhi, instead of blaming BSP, would start blaming Congress, though in his
heart”, she said.

The white paper on power titled “Who is
responsible for the poor and dismal power situation in Uttar Pradesh” has
“stated facts proving how Congress and leaders of other parties were taking
recourse in lies to tarnish the image of the state governemnt”, Mayawati
said.

“The white paper would also prove how the neglect by the
previous and present UPA governemnt has led to this acute power problem today,”
Mayawati said.

“We face the charge that industrial houses do not
come to Uttar Pradesh ..who would come when the power situation is so bad?….
but after 2014 when we have enough power indistries would come to the state, she
said and asked Congress not to take the “help of lies for political purposes as
it would not

not go a long way”.

The chief minister claimed her
two-year old government has undertaken more development works than those taken
up by successive Congress governments in the past 40 years and the booklet has a
detailed account of all.

She rejected the allegation that
development funds are being diverted for setting up memorials, statues and parks
saying no work has been halted because of these constructions.

“Moreover, the spendings on these constructions is just a fraction
of the money that has been spent for the memorials on Raj Ghat in Delhi but the
hue and cry by Congress in UP over the subject is just reflective of its double
standards and anti- SC/ST mentality”, she said.

The BSP president
also said it was “continued neglect” of  SC/STs, OBCs minorities and the poor
among the upper castes during the long tenure of Congress governemnts both at
the Centre and the state which forced the formation of BSP in 1984.
