Canda: The Beggar
Before, I had fallen on evil times: no husband, no
children, no relatives, friends, no way to obtain clothing & food. So,
taking a staff & bowl in hand, begging for alms from house to house,
feverish from the cold & heat, I wandered for seven full years. Then seeing
a nun obtaining food & drink, I approached her & said: “Let me go
forth into homelessness.” She, Patacara, from
sympathy, let me go forth; then, exhorting me, urged me on to the highest goal.
Hearing her words, I did her bidding. Her exhortation was not in vain. I’m a
three-knowledge woman, fermentation-free.
POLITICS is SACRED with GOOD GOVERNANCE
BEST PROMISING GOVERNANCE OF Ms. MAYAWATI JI IN FOUR YEARS
Important and Historic Initiative for Law
& Order and Crime Control
1. Since the formation of the present
government in Uttar Pradesh, on 13 May, 2007 till date, an Unprecedented
environment of “peace and order and communal harmony, free from injustice,
crime and fear” has been created by giving “top priority” to “law-order and
crime control” for which several important decisions had to be taken with iron
resolve at the different levels e.g:
2. Rigorous and effective action taken
against more than 1 lakh known notorious criminals/Mafiosi.
3. 1.707 notorious criminals detained under
the most stringent “National Security Act (NSA)”.
4. Strict action taken under th “Gangster
Act” against about 40,000 professional offenders.
5. A total of 8.013 notorious delequents,
carrying reward on their heads, were arrested, including those “carrying on the
head a reward” upto Rs.5 lakh.
6. Another 374 notorious criminals carrying
reward, between Rs.50,000 – Rs. 5,00,000 were “killed” by the police in self

and white-collar criminals were sent to their right place i.e. behind the bars
in the “jail”.
8. For the first in the state, action was
also taken against “ influencial people and those occupying high positions”
found guilty of breaching the law, establishing the motto “all wequal before
the law” under which several ministers, ex-ministers, MPs and legislators were
proceeded against leagally with due strictness.
9. “Historic action” continues, without let
or hinderance, against arrant criminals and Mafiosi to “confisticat their
ill-gotten wealth” in order to break the economic backbone. Property worth more
than Rs. 443 crore forfeited so far.
10. Elimination of fierce dacoits – synonymous
of terror, Rs. 5 lakh rewardee bandit chief Shivakumar alias Dadua, Ambika
Patel i.e. Thokia, Mussafir Yadav, carrying a reward of Rs.2lakh from Bihar
atate and Santosh alias Kittu Gupta with a reward of Rs. 1.5 lakh besides,
several other offenders carrying rewards between Rs. 1 lakh and Rs. 50,000 were
killed by police in encounters inself-defence.
11. In the terrorist attack on CRPF group
centre at Rampur by 4 terrorists of HUJI – Harqat UI Jehad Al Islami as wellas
an active member of Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) together with ISI agents
were also apprehended.
12. Noor Baksh, a shooter belonging to the
gang of international criminal, Dawood Ibrahim was shot daed while trying to
escape from police custody.
13. To secure justice to prosecuted people
under the previous government, 10,000 cases filed through a “special campaign”
and action taken against 31,136 persons. “Legal” action also initiated against
those trying to register “fake” reports.
14. The area of ‘jungle raj’, goonda tax,
‘mafia rule’ and ‘anarchy’ inherited in legacy, ends, entirely due to the
“missionary and struggling” efforts of Hon’ble Chief Ninister Ms. Mayawati JI.
People, coming out of the suffocating “jungle raj”, breathing in, today, the
wiff of fresh air of the “rule of law by law”.
15. The result of such strict action was that
an environment of “ communal harmony” continued to exist and no untoward
incident occurred in the whole of the state, in light of the court decision on
the very sensitive Ram Janmbhoomi/Babri Masjid “case”. The peaceful conditions
prevailed in Uttar Pradesh, there was calm and quiet in other states of the
country as well.
16. So also Common Wealth Games 2010,
three-tier panchayat elections, Mahakumbh fair, Haridwar-2010, Allahabad Magh
Mela-2011 passed off peacefully. Lok Sabha-2009 general elections were also
conducted without violence, with peace and impartiality.
17. In order to ensure “justice” to the
general public and create “trust” towards the law and order system in them,
strict instructions issued to record the First Information Report (FIR) in the
thanas from victimized persons without the slightest difficulties.

action against victimization of poor people of the sarv-samaj.

by the government, remarkable “decline“ in the rate of all kinds of crime
against “SC/ST” in the state. Eqally notable has been the percentage of
disposal of crime enquiries which stands at 92.
21. Appointment of a special public
prosecutor” for prosecution of cases under the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities
22. “Considerable reduction” in incidence of
all crimes against “women” in the state.
23. The percentage of action was 94.1, last
year against those accused of crime against “women” and 91.9 of cases disposed
of, which is a “record” in itself. Consequently, the rate of crime against
women in Uttar Pradesh is much less than even the national average.
24. The effort to secure “justice” in every
matter and at every level to every
segment of the society and the sarv-samaj, the poor people, farmers, labourers,
businessmen, lawyers, service-class and non-service-class people as also students
