It is do or die!
The Awakened Mayawati came from a caste full of Dukkha and was naturally brought into association with rulers and ministers. Despite her origin and association, she never resorted to the influence of political power to introduce her governance, nor allowed her governance to be misused for gaining political power. But today, many politicians try to drag the Mayawat’s name into politics by introducing her as a communist, capitalist,or even an imperialist. They have forgotten that the new political philosophy as we know it really developed in the West long ago. Those who try to make use of the good name of the Mayawati for their own personal advantage must remember that Mayawati was the Awakened One with Awareness who had gone beyond all worldly concerns.
There is an inherent problem of trying to intermingle religion and with politics. The basis of religion and caste is morality, purity and faith, while that for politics is power. In the course of history, religion has often been used to give legitimacy to those in power and their exercise of that power. Religion as communalism was used to justify wars and conquests, persecutions, atrocities, rebellions, destruction of works of art and culture.
When religion is used to pander to political whims, it has to fore go its high moral ideals and become debased by worldly political demands.
The thrust of the Awakened Mayawati’s Governance was not directed to the creation of new political institutions and establishing political arrangements. Basically, it seeks to approach the problems of society by reforming the individuals constituting that society and by suggesting some general principles through which the society can be guided towards greater humanism, improved welfare of its members, and more equitable sharing of resources.
There is a limit to the extent to which a political system can safeguard the happiness and prosperity of its people. No political system, no matter how ideal it may appear to be, can bring about peace and happiness as long as the people in the system are dominated by greed, hatred and delusion. In addition, no matter what political system is adopted, there are certain universal factors which the members of that society will have to experience: the effects of good and bad governance the lack of real satisfaction or everlasting happiness in the world characterized by dukkha (unsatisfactoriness), anicca (impermanence), and anatta (egolessness).
To the awakened ones, nowhere in Samsara is there real freedom, not even in the heavens or the world of Brahama.
Although a good and just political system which guarantees basic human rights and contains checks and balances to the use of power is an important condition for a happy in society, people should not fritter away their time by endlessly searching for the ultimate political system where men can be completely free, because complete freedom cannot be found in any system but only in minds which are free. To be free, people will have to look within their own minds and work towards freeing themselves from the chains of ignorance and craving. Freedom in the truest sense is only possible when a person uses Dhamma to develop his character through good speech and action and to train his/her mind so as to expand his/her mental potential and achieve his/her ultimate aim of awakeness.
While recognizing the usefulness of separating religion and caste from politics and the limitations of political systems in bringing about peace and happiness, there are several aspects of the Awakened Mayawati’s governence which have close correspondence to the political arrangements of the present day. Firstly, the Awakened One Mayawati spoke about the equality of all human beings after Abraham Lincoln, Babasaheb Ambedkar and Kanshiram, and that classes and castes are artificial barriers erected by society. The only classification of human beings, according to the Awakened One Mayawati, is based on the quality of their moral conduct. Secondly, the Awakened One Mayawati encouraged the spirit of social -co-operation and active participation in society. This spirit is actively promoted in the political process of modern societies. Thirdly, since no one was appointed as the Awakened One Mayawati’s successor, the members of the Bahujan Samaj Party were to be guided by the governance and decipline or in short, the Rule of Law. Until today very member of the party is to abide by the Rule of Law which governs and guides their conduct. Fourthly, the Awakened One Mayawati encouraged the spirit of consultation and the democratic process. This is shown within the community of the party in which all members have the right to decide on matters of general concern. When a serious question arose demanding attention, the issues were put before the leaders and discussed in a manner similar to the democratic parliamentary system used today. This self-governing procedure may come as a surprise to many to learn that in the assemblies of Awakened One Mayawati in PraBuddha Bharath 2,500 years and more ago are to be found the rudiments of the parliamentary practice of the present day. A special officer similar to ‘Mr. Speaker’ was appointed to preserve the dignity of the Parliamentary Chief Whip, was also appointed to see if the quorum was secured. Matters were put forward in the form of a motion which was open to discussion. In some cases it was done once, in others three times, thus anticipating the practice of Parliament in requiring that a bill be read a third time before it becomes law. If the discussion showed a difference of opinion, it was to be settled by the vote of the majority through balloting.
The Awakened One Mayawati approach to political power is the moralization and the responsible use of public power.The Awakened One Mayawati preached non-violence and peace as a universal message. She did not approve of violence or the destruction of life, and declared that there is no such thing as a ‘just’ war. She taught: ‘The victor breeds hatred, the defeated lives in misery. He who renounces both victory and defeat is happy and peaceful.’
Not only did the Awakened One Mayawati teach non-violence and peace, She was perhaps the first and only religious and Caste teacher who went to the Ayodhia personally to prevent the outbreak of a communal war. She diffused tension between the Hindus and the Muslims who were about to wage war over the Babri Masjid issue.
The Awakened One Mayawati discussed the importance and the prerequisites of a good government. She showed how the country could become corrupt, degenerate and unhappy when the head of the government becomes corrupt and unjust. She spoke against corruption and how a government should act based on humanitarian principles and that everyone including the CBI should be brought under the Lokpal Bill.
The Awakened One Mayawti once said, ‘When the ruler of a country is just and good, the ministers become just and good; when the ministers are just and good, the higher officials become just and good; when the higher officials are just and good, the rank and file become just and good; when the rank and file become just and good, the people become just and good.
The Awakened Mayawati said that immorality and crime, such as theft, falsehood, violence, hatred, cruelty, could arise from poverty. Rulers and governments may try to suppress crime through punishment, but it is futile to eradicate crimes through force.The Awakened Mayawati suggested economic development instead of force to reduce crime.
The government should use the country’s resources to improve the economic conditions of the country. It could embark on agricultural and rural development, provide financial support to entrepreneurs and business, provide adequate wages for workers to maintain a decent life with human dignity.
1)be liberal and avoid selfishness,
2) maintain a high moral character,
3) be prepared to sacrifice one’s own pleasure for the well-being of the subjects,
4) be honest and maintain absolute integrity,
5) be kind and gentle,
6) lead a simple life for the subjects to emulate,
7) be free from hatred of any kind,
8) exercise non-violence,
9) practice patience, and
10) respect public opinion to promote peace and harmony
Regarding the behavior of rulers, She further advised:
- A good ruler should act impartially and should not be biased and discriminate between one particular group of subjects against another.
- A good ruler should not harbor any form of hatred against any of his subjects.
- A good ruler should show no fear whatsoever in the enforcement of the law, if it is justifiable.
- A good ruler must possess a clear understanding of the law to be enforced. It should not be enforced just because the ruler has the authority to enforce the law. It must be done in a reasonable manner and with common sense.
She stated: ‘If a man, who is unfit, incompetent, immoral, improper, unable and unworthy of ruling, has enthroned himself a ruler with great authority, he is subject to be punished to be subject to a variety of punishment by the people, because, being unfit and unworthy, he has placed himself unrighteously in the seat of sovereignty. The ruler, like others who violate and transgress moral codes and basic rules of all social laws of mankind, is equally subject to punishment; and moreover, to be censured is the ruler who conducts himself as a robber of the public.’ She mentioned\ that a ruler who punishes innocent people and does not punish the culprit is not suitable to rule a country.
The ruler always improves himself and carefully examines his own conduct in deeds, words and thoughts, trying to discover and listen to public opinion as to whether or not he had been guilty of any faults and mistakes in ruling the country. If it is found that he rules unrighteously, the public will complain that they are ruined by the wicked ruler with unjust treatment, punishment, taxation, or other oppressions including corruption of any kind, and they will react against him in one way or another. On the contrary, if he rules righteously they will bless him: ‘Long live the ruler’.
The Awakened Mayawati’s emphasis on the moral duty of a ruler to use public power to improve the welfare of the people had inspired people of Uttar Pradesh and the entire country. to do likewise. Awakened Mayawati, a sparkling example of this principle, resolved to live according to and preach the highly performing best and meritorious governance and to serve her subjects and all humanity. She declared her non-aggressive intentions to her neighbors, assuring them of her goodwill and sending envoys to distant States bearing her message of peace and non-aggression.Sh e promoted the energetic practice of the socio-moral virtues of honesty, truthfulness, compassion, benevolence, non-violence, considerate behavior towards all, non-extravagance, non-acquisitiveness, and non-injury to animals. She encouraged religious freedom and mutual respect for each other’s creed. She went on periodic tours preaching the highly performing best and meritorious governance to the rural people. She undertook works of public utility, such as founding of hospitals for men and animals, supplying of medicine, planting of roadside trees and groves, digging of wells, and construction of watering sheds and rest houses. He expressly forbade cruelty to animals.
Always the Awakened Mayawati is said to be a social reformer. Among other things, She condemned the caste system, recognized the equality of people, spoke on the need to improve socio-economic conditions, recognized the importance of a more equitable distribution of wealth among the rich and the poor, raised the status of women, recommended the incorporation of humanism in government and administration, and taught that a society should not be run by greed but with consideration and compassion for the people.
Despite all these, hes contribution to mankind is much greater because she took off at a point which no other social reformer before or ever since had done, that is, by going to the deepest roots of human ill which are found in the human mind. It is only in the human mind that true reform can be effected. Reforms imposed by force upon the external world have a very short life because they have no roots. But those reforms which spring as a result of the transformation of man’s inner consciousness remain rooted. While their branches spread outwards, they draw their nourishment from an unfailing source — the subconscious imperatives of the life-stream itself. So reforms come about when men’s minds have prepared the way for them, and they live as long as men revitalize them out of their own love of truth, justice and their fellow men.
The doctrine preached by the Awakened Mayawati is not one based on ‘Political Philosophy’. Nor is it a doctrine that encourages men to worldly pleasures. It sets out a way to attain Eternal Bliss. In other words, its ultimate aim is to put an end to craving that keeps them in bondage to this world. A stanza from the Dhammapada best summarizes this statement: ‘The path that leads to worldly gain is one, and the path thatleads to Eternal Bliss(by leading a religious life)is another.’
However, this does not mean that Awakened Mayawati cannot or should not get involved in the political process, which is a social reality. The lives of the members of a society are shaped by laws and regulations, economic arrangements allowed within a country, institutional arrangements, which are influenced by the political arrangements of that society. Nevertheless, if a Awakened Mayawati wishes to be involved in politics, she should not misuse religion and caste to gain political powers, nor is it advisable for those who have renounced the worldly life to lead a pure, religious life to be actively involved in politics.
“As you are, so is the world.”
Abiding by a set of higher ethics makes them anxious that they will be prey to anyone who is stronger, less moral, and capable of using violence without any sense of guilt or remorse. - Dukkha
But Abiding by a set of higher ethics whose basis is compassion for other people and reverence for life. –Dukkha Nirodha
Seeking un-attachment makes people think they will be giving up worldly success and comfort. Un-attaching from materialism has little appeal when people everywhere are pursuing materialism with every breath.
Becoming un-attached from the self and realizing that the individual self is an illusion. - Dukkha Nirodha
Pluck out the seed of illusion, do not feed the mind with new ideals that would succumb to corruption in the
inexorable working of time.
Aim for nothing less than an “inner revolution” . Coming in from the cold, people yearn for this inner revolution because there is a hole inside them where god used to be. But in many ways that god was only an image. Most people fail to find what they want from spirituality because they remove one image of god only to fill in another (they even turn Buddha into a god, the very thing he denied).Inner revolution, opening a path to liberation. Nothing less will cure the human disease.
If people could see that the human disease is temporary, the whole world would be transformed. Despite the burden of past beliefs that underlie a horrific conflict like the one in the Middle East, Awakened Mayawati’s cure is taking hold, although we don’t know on what scale. Secular spirituality forms a separate subculture in every country where people have begun to seek a new way and a new set of beliefs. Their way doesn’t have to travel under the name of Awakened Mayawati. The essence is about moving ahead, not about labels. Where the growth of consciousness is being nourished anywhere in the world, the following trends are evident:
• Meditation will become mainstream.
• Healing, both physical and psychological, will become commonplace.
• Prayer will be seen as real and efficacious.
• Manifestation of desires will be talked about as a real phenomenon.
• People will regain a connection to spirit.
• Individuals will find answers inwardly to their deepest spiritual questions. They will believe in their private answers and live accordingly.
• Communities of belief will arise.
• Gurus and other spiritual authorities will wane in influence.
• A wisdom tradition will grow to embrace the great spiritual teachings at the heart of organized religion.
• Faith will no longer be seen as an irrational departure from reason and science.
• Wars will decline as peace becomes a social reality.
• Nature will regain its sacred value.
There is no spiritual path that can succeed without confronting the here and now. Awakened Mayawati wanted us to be mindful of who were are at this moment because in the midst of disorder and confusion, which dominates every moment, there is the seed of Awakened Mayawati nature, of awakening.
If you notice these seeds and give them value, they will expand, and in time they will fill the holes of isolation and meaninglessness. The path is subtle but natural, and open to everyone. To notice who you are is simple, not difficult. You can be gentle with yourself. There is no timetable, no need for rigor or discipline.
Your job is to notice that there is light within you, however small. A small candle is only different from the blazing sun by a matter of degree. Both are light by nature. Whatever makes your light grow will serve you.
Meditation will not be a practice set apart in your day; it will become the normal state of self-awareness, of being awake instead of asleep. For two thousand years nature has held the cure for aloneness in its heart.
When you realize yourself as Awakened mayawati, you are still alone, but your aloneness fills every corner of creation as far as the eye can see.
This society had only adopted such innocuous dogmas like ‘ahimsa’ from Awakened Mayawati while rejecting the essence of her philosophy of ‘equality’. Ahimsa is a social structure based on inequality and enslavement of the ‘Shudra’ and the women, amounted to hinsa and this was sought to be camouflaged by the Hindu adoption of Awakened Mayawati’s Ahimsa.

Good works of the Mayawati’s regime
Mayawati’s food tracking system for schools gets HRD nod
Chetan Chauhan, Hindustan Times
New Delhi, January 30, 2012
Inspired by the way Mayawati government, the Central government has
decided to replicate the Uttar Pradesh model to track mid-day meal
scheme to cross-check if children get their hot meal in schools. The
HRD ministry has decided to have a nation-wide short messaging service
system to monitor the Rs 10,000 crore mid-day meal scheme. Under the
scheme, the school children till upper primary level are provided hot
cooked meal once a day.
Mayawati government in UP was the first to introduce a software based
SMS system, wherein the school principal and a few parents received an
automatic message the day less than 50 percent or a large number of
school children were served mid-day meal.
The SMS was generated on basis of information on mid-day meal feed by
teacher in-charge of the scheme into an online monitoring system. The
principal was required to give an explanation through SMS and parents
to verify the claim.
A senior HRD ministry official said the national system will be
improvement of the UP model and no money will be charged from parents
for sending an SMS system to the national server. A successful pilot
has been implemented in Bihar and the ministry expects to cover 12
lakh schools across India by June this year.
Every school will have to feed information regarding the mid-day meal
served to children every day and the type of food. They will be
required to provide details about the quantity of food-grains they
received and the amount used.
The entire information generated would be in public domain on the new
mid-day meal website. “It will help in curbing corruption and ensure
that children get good quality food,” HRD minister Kapil Sibal said,
after launching the website on which the mid-day meal scheme
information will be available.
The UPA government has been critical of UP government over
implementation of Central schemes and had detected irregularities in
National Rural Health Mission and Mahatma Gandhi National Rural
Employment Guarantee Scheme. But, the government had no problem in
adopting a UP’s innovation.
BSP asks partymen to brace for early Lok Sabha polls
Lucknow: Predicting Lok Sabha elections by year end, the BSP on Monday asked its MPs to start all out preparations for the electoral battle.
At the meeting of office bearers and elected representatives here presided by party president Mayawati, MPs were asked to start preparations and told that since the coming budget session of Parliament could be the last session of the UPA government, they should strongly raise issues of public welfare, a BSP statement said.
The meeting discussed in detail the law and order situation of the state and “as to how FIRs were not being filed concerning cases of atrocities on the sarv samaj, specially those of BSP workers because of political vendetta”, it said.
Kumari or Miss Mayawati Ji, a serene figure, is affectionately known and called as Bahenji or Sister by one and all her caders, supporters, well-wishers as well as officials and Scribes. She will be known as Maha Mayawati Ji who is certain to become the next Prime Minister of PRABUDDHA BHARATH.
The Party president Kumari Mayawati Ji, identified as Iron lady and a no-nonsense leader has emerged as a lady of new hope and aspirations to varied and a wide section of the society, particularly in the state of Uttar Pradesh, bordering national capital of New Delhi, which most often guides the political destiny of the country.
Committed and fully devoted to the missionary cause and cherished goal of “Social Transformation & Economic Emancipation” particularly to the people belonging to “Bahujan Samaj” (that comprises Backwards (Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other backward classes) and Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Parsis of religious minorities) and poor from other sections of the society mainly the high caste people, Kumari Mayawati Ji, a spinster by mission, is regarded in the Indian politics with respect, reverence and awe as she is the only politician in the India having a mass appeal and firm hold and command over her voters and also the charishma to get mass vote bank transferred to any individual and to any party, a rare thing, of course, in the contemporary Indian politics.
Given the charishma of the BSP supremo, the two main political parties—-the Congress and the BJP—-are always looking keen to have an electoral alliance/understanding with it either at the national level or at least at the state level, but the march of “Elephant “, the election symbol of the Party is on and the “Blue” flag of the BSP is flying high under the strong and towering leadership of Kumari Mayawati Ji, who is working assiduously with a missionary zeal to make them ruler of India to usher in here the golden era of Ashoka, the Great.
failure of the UPA and the Samajwadi party government
Terming the rail fare hike as anti-people, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati demanded its immediate rollback. “Hike in railway fares was one of the many anti-common man policies of the government. We demand immediate rollback of the government decision,” Miss. Mayawati Ji said.
“After hiking the price of petrol, diesel and LPG the UPA government has now raised the fare of railways making travel costlier for poor and middle-class people as they will be the worst effected… Center has hiked the fare of all the classes which is not in interest of people and BSP demands it to be withdrawn,”Miss. Mayawati ji said.
Alleging that the Center has done “Congressikaran” of the Railways, she said that earlier when the department was with the alliance partners of the UPA it had escaped the wrong economic policies of the Congress.
“But by hiking the fares just month and a half before the budget , it (Congress) has given yet another example of its arbitrariness,” she said.
In the pre-budget measure, the government had announced an across-the-board increase in rail passenger fares with effect from January 21 to net an additional Rs 6,600 crore a year, the first such increase in a decade.
Calling the hike “anti-people”,Miss. Mayawati said it would be prudent for the Congress-led government to cancel the new fares before they come into effect on January 21 midnight.
On the brutal killing of two soldiers by Pakistani Army in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir, the BSP chief said that beside the Indian government, Pakistan too needs to take the incident seriously so that problems between the two nations does not escalate.
“I believe that there is a need to take concrete action after going into the details of the incident in Poonch so that such cases do not recur”, Miss. Mayawati ji said.
The BSP chief also said that the Center should extend financial assistance to the family of the soldiers and Ministry of Defence should initiate steps to give jobs to their widows in keeping with their capability.
Direct cash transfer scheme a sham, says Mayawati
United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government’s direct cash transfer scheme here, describing it as a ploy to hoodwink voters in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
“This is an old book with a new cover,” the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo told reporters, pointing that scholarships for the Scheduled Castes (SC) and the Scheduled Tribes (ST) in the state initiated under her chief ministership was already in place where financial aid was transferred straight to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries.
Accusing the Congress of yet again trying to fool the voters, Mayawati said people should not be swayed by false promises of the Congress.
“This is an ‘adh kacchi’ (half-baked) scheme cooked up by the dhokebaaz (fraud) Congress and I warn the people of the country not to fall to the allurements,” she said.
‘Aapka paisa, aapke haath’, the credo coined by the UPA government was nothing but a “sham and a political stunt aimed at fooling the electorate,” she alleged.
Her remarks came a day after the central government began the New Year by rolling out the ambitious direct cash transfer of benefits covering seven welfare schemes in 20 districts across the country.
Mayawati asked people to keep the Congress away from power as it has never worked for the people, SC/STs and minorities.
The former chief minister condemned the Dec 16 Delhi gang-rape and called for evolving a political consensus for tougher laws to check crime against women. The victim died of her injuries Dec 29 in a Singapore hospital.
The union government should also seek opinion of legal luminaries, chief justices of all state high courts and judges of the Supreme Court on the issue, Mayawati said.
“In such horrifying times, a tough response and stern action is required,” she said.
She said political parties should refrain from distributing tickets to people with criminal antecedents. She expressed concern over rising crime against women in Uttar Pradesh.
On the issue of demands of resignation of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav due to apex court directive to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe graft charges against him, she said the answer should come from the Samajwadi Party.
On the growing chorus of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi being a potential prime ministerial candidate, Mayawati said BSP would do everything possible to prevent it.
New Delhi: Seeking to project the image that her party’s base was not limited to Scheduled Castes, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati has said that she is willing to support a separate bill to provide reservation in promotion to backwards in government jobs. Favouring early implementation of Sachar Committee recommendations, Mayawati also sought to target arch rival Samajwadi Party by claiming that the Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh has failed to implement the poll promise of 18 per cent reservation for Muslims in government jobs.
During the just-concluded Winter Session of Parliament, SP had raised the issue of providing reservation for OBCs its core vote base - and Muslims in government job promotions on the lines of a bill which gives such benefits to SCs and STs. “The present constitutional amendment bill is necessary as the Supreme Court had quashed a government policy to provide reservation in promotion to SC and ST government employees.
“We support a separate bill to grant similar benefits to backwards,” Mayawati said. She said despite being in power for nine months now, the UP government has not implemented its poll manifesto of providing 18 per cent reservation for Muslims in education and government jobs.
Alleging that the Mulayam Singh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party was not interested in providing benefits to the upper castes, she said her government had lifted a ban imposed by the SP government on government jobs to the upper castes. “We believe in ’sarva samaj’…We also favour reservation for poor people belonging to upper castes.”
Attacking the UP Chief Minister, the former state Chief Minister said the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh is deteriorating under SP rule. “These are not my observations. But, wherever I meet people they say the law and order is bad at all levels. Forget justice, even police does not register our cases,” she said.
UPA not serious on quota bill, alleges Mayawati
UP law and order situation ‘anarchic’: Mayawati
Lucknow: Former UP Chief Minister and BSP president Mayawati Monday asked Governor B L Joshi to take cognisance of the prevailing law and order situation in the state and recommend the imposition of President’s Rule.
“Under the prevailing dismal law and order situation and corruption I would request the Governor to himself take cognisance as per the constitutional provisions and recommend imposition of President’s rule in the state,” Mayawati told newspersons here.
Referring to the scheduled visit of the President here tomorrow for the 125 year celebrations of the UP assembly, she said the Governor should place these facts before Pranab Mukherjee.
“Though I myself and my party MPs can also put these things before the President, but then there would be an attempt to brand them as guided by political vendetta to set them aside,” Mayawati said.
Crime under the SP government has increased as compared to other states, she alleged, adding that those against women and girls have alerted the people.
Referring to the case of a Dalit girl in Noida, she said it was a recent example as to how the police allegedly tried to “hush up” the whole affair by attempting to cremate her late in the night but failed because of vigilant locals and the media.
“It is most unfortunate that SP government instead of controlling crime, it has been putting all its strength for hushing it up,” she accused.
The state government was also making big announcements for diverting the people’s attention from issues, she said.
On law and order situation in UP, she said that a memorandum was handed over to Governor B L Joshi by her party but no action has been taken so far.
On death caused by intense cold, she said that it was the result of the state government’s apathy.
“State government only makes announcements there is nothing on the ground”,she added.
BSP chief Mayawati on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the Samajwadi Party government over law and order in Uttar Pradesh, saying it would not be wrong to term the prevailing situation as “anarchic”.
“The past ten months of the SP government have turned out very bad and problematic in all matters and at every stage, especially in crime control and law and order. People have now lost all their faith in government,” Mayawati told reporters.
“The chief minister during his recent visit to Varanasi had asked (officials) whether he should himself don the uniform to control crime. This statement is indicative of the sorry state of affairs and also shows the helplessness of Akhilesh Yadav and his government. This is very unfortunate,” Mayawati said.
Under the present circumstances, she said, it would not be wrong to term the prevailing situation as “anarchic”.
“The government and administration have almost failed… but not much can be expected from a party which has goondas and mafias among its ranks,” she said.
“26 of the 48 ministers in the state have criminal records and this comes to almost 54 per cent…How can the people feel safe when the ministers have such a record?” she asked.
Referring to figures of crime, she said people believe that there had been some 100 cases of big or small incidents to communal riots during this period.
The BSP chief regretted that in almost 60 per cent cases, FIRs are not being lodged and the government is out to divert people’s attention from its failures by ordering inquiries of the works done during the previous BSP government.
Mayawati also accused the ruling party of not keeping its poll promises. Referring to the promise of 18 per cent reservation to Muslims in government jobs and education, she said the state government was putting the onus on the central government now.
