Mayawati releases book on birthday


Lucknow, Jan 15 – On her 54th birthday Friday, Bahujan Samaj Party
(BSP) boss and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati released the fifth
volume of her book detailing her political struggles. In it, Mayawati
has claimed she would have become prime minister but for the ‘ganging
up by Congress, BJP and Samajwadi Party’.

The BSP chief released the book, titled ‘Mere
Sangharshmay Jeevan Evam BSP Movement ka Safarnam’, at her official
residence here.

Releasing the book, she said: ‘This volume has a detailed account of
the progress made by the party togther with whatever I have done over
the past one year.’

In this 1,100-page volume, Maywati flays the opposition for criticising
her decision to dedicate and build memorials for leading SC/ST/OBC icons,
who she alleged were ’systematically ignored by successive ruling
parties over the years’.

Lashing out at the Congress party in particular, for what she termed as
its ‘anti-SC/ST mindset’, Mayawati writes in her book: ‘The Congress
party has made these memorials, built in the interest and for the use
of general public, as an excuse for their political animosity to us. In
addition to misusing the central government machinery for the purpose,
they are also opposing these vehemently in the court of law.’

She goes on to add: ‘These historic construction works executed by my
government in Uttar Pradesh are like a thorn in the flesh of the
Congress party.’

Referring to her book, she said: ‘I am able to write this for the
readers because it has been a very old hobby of mine to get up early in
the morning and do some reading and writing. That was how many
documents related to the BSP movement are now treasured by the party.’

She also made it a point to claim that she would have become the
country’s prime minister ‘if it were not for the ganging up by
Congress, BJP and Samajwadi Party.’

Mayawati paints Lucknow BSP blue on her birthday

Lucknow, Jan 15

The Uttar Pradesh capital was literally covered under a blue blanket - from blue lights to blue buntings - to mark the 54th birthday Friday of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president and state Chief Minister Mayawati.

Long strings of tiny blue lights were draped around each of the
monuments erected by the Mayawati government in the name of different SC/ST/OBC icons, including Babasaheb Ambedkar, Shahuji Maharaj, Narayan
Guru, Ramaswamy Periyar, Jyotiba Phule and of course Kanshi Ram, the
BSP founder and Mayawati’s political mentor.

Mayawati’s half a dozen statues erected at different places across
the city were bedecked profusely with exquisite flowers, ordered
specially from Delhi and other places.

Millions of tiny blue bulbs were used to lend the city a BSP blue
hue.  The city sure wore a new look with the new
kind of illumination.

The decoration and illuminations on the birthday of “Behenji”, as
she is known to her followers, were as on a grander scale than the
adornments on Independence Day or Republic Day.

While the chief minister confined herself to the four walls of her
heavily guarded official residence, people thronged the memorials for a
glimpse of the decorations.

Security was beefed up in and around each of the memorials since Thursday.

Mayawati announces welfare schemes worth Rs 7,312 crore on her birthday

The Chief Minister of the country’s most populous state Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati while celebrating her 54th birthday announced welfare schemes worth Rs.7,312 crore today.

Mayawati kept the celebration low key at her official residence. The
main event was the unveiling of 265 foundation stones and plaques by
the minister.

The various inaugurations included foundation stone laying of new
bridges, construction of new roads, installation of new ambitious power
drinking water and sanitation projects under development schemes while she also announced a host of schemes for the poor. 

A pension of Rs. 300 a month for the poor was also announced, and is
expected to cost the government around Rs.1,100 crores. Explaining the
need for the pension scheme she said the centre programmes had a cap on
the number of beneficiaries and thus a large number of poor could not
be covered. She said that her government has requested the centre on
many occasion for increasing the cap on beneficiaries as it proposes to
cover about 30 lakh BPL people who are without specified cards. The
pension is to be given in six-monthly cycles.

Mayawati said, ‘These welfare programmes, schemes and development projects were, in all, worth Rs.7, 312 crores.’  

She also announced the release of 25 mentally handicapped prisoners
and undertrials while proposing to release 26,335 undertrials who have
completed 50 percent of the jail term to which they could be sentenced
for their alleged crimes.

She distributed tri-cycles to the physically challenged while also
marking the start of the new pension scheme handed out some cheques to
the BPL families.

Special Correspondent

LUCKNOW: Reiterating her commitment to the welfare of the
downtrodden and deprived sections of society on her 54th birthday,
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Friday launched a new scheme:
“Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mahamaya Gharib Arthik Madad Yojana”, the
beneficiaries would be entitled to Rs. 300 per month. The amount would
be deposited in two half-yearly instalments in their bank accounts. The
scheme was granted Cabinet approval on Thursday.

A special cell has been created in the Chief Minister’s secretariat
in the Lal Bahadur Shastri Annexe Bhawan in the State capital for the
implementation of the scheme. It would be directly monitored by the
Chief Minister’s Office. About 30 lakh poor families would benefit in
the first year of the scheme and the remaining would be covered

The scheme for the poor is among the 264 new public welfare measures
and programmes worth Rs. 7312 crore, which were launched by Ms.
Mayawati at a function to mark her birthday at her 5, Kalidas Marg
official residence here on Friday. The English and Hindi editions of
the fifth volume of Ms. Mayawati’s book , “ A Travelogue of My
Struggle-Ridden Life and BSP Movement” was released by her on the
occasion. Running up to 1100 pages, the anthology is also known as the
“Blue Book” of the Bahujan Samaj Party.

People’s welfare day

Unlike in the past, Ms. Mayawati’s birthday this year is being
celebrated as “people’s welfare day” with public welfare camps
supervised by the district magistrates being held in the 71 districts
of Uttar Pradesh on Friday. Earlier, January 15 was celebrated as
“arthik sahyog divas” (financial help day). In her brief address, the
Chief Minister described the launch of the new welfare measures as a
“gift to the people on her birthday.” Ms. Mayawati said the financial
help scheme for the poor and needy has been launched to fulfil their
needs of livelihood. Ms. Mayawati said under the Government of India’s
programme, 1.7 crore BPL families were entitled for 35 kilogram of
ration, whereas in U.P. alone the number of BPL families had crossed
1.7 crore.

Ms. Mayawati regretted that the Centre had still not acted on her
request for a Rs. 80,000 crore special incentive package and said the
welfare measures have been launched with the State’s own resources. The
Chief Minister said the beneficiaries of “UP CM Mahamaya Gharib Arthik
Madad Yojana” would be selected through open meetings in gram sabhas
and urban areas.

The meetings would be supervised by the DMs and objections would be
invited against the names published in the beneficiaries’ list and the
final list would be declared after thorough examination. The CM
promised complete transparency.

The other projects included in the 264 schemes related to 111 new
bridges, about 50 new roads, bus stations, sewerage schemes in several
towns, critical care unit in Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical
University in Lucknow, 27 power sub stations and agriculture reform

On Thursday, the Cabinet had given its nod to additional five per
cent dearness allowance to state employees with retrospective effect
from July 1, 2009.
