Mayawati, on her part, put an end to the growing speculation
about the two parties contesting the UP elections together. She
clarified in a statement on Wednesday that her support to the Congress
in Uttarakhand was merely a move to fight “communal forces” and should
not be mistaken for a possible alliance between the two parties in the
upcoming elections, not just in Uttar Pradesh but even in Punjab and
“BSP is fundamentally against allying with the
Congress, the BJP or any other party and we will go alone in UP, Punjab
and Uttarakhand next year. However, supporting a particular party to
defeat communal forces after an election is a separate thing,” the
Punjab remains a BSP stronghold and strategically important for Mayawati.
was Punjab, which has a sizeable SC/ST population of 32% as per Census
2011, from where BSP founder Kanshi Ram launched the party, and a good
show in Punjab would mean better preparedness for UP which will go to
polls soon after Punjab in 2017.
The move in Uttarakhand is therefore also a way by which BSP is clearly
distancing itself from its enemy BJP. The last-minute
announcement to go with the Congress is Mayawati’s way of controlling
her enemies. Moreover, with Congress hardly having any stakes in the UP
election, Mayawati is now presenting herself as direct competition to
to reporters in Delhi and in a subsequent party statement on the
matter, Mayawati said BSP will contest the coming Assembly polls in UP,
Uttarakhand and Punjab “alone” and “on its own”.
She said BSP is not just a political party but also “a social
movement”, and it contests elections to take its mission forward, “not
for any momentary benefits or victory or loss”. She said this is the
reason why her party is contesting elections without any alliance even
in the states where it does not have a strong organisation.
said her party supported Congress in Uttarakhand “only with the intent
to weaken the communal forces”. She said contesting elections of Lok Sabha or Assembly in alliance is different from supporting a “non-communal party” in forming the government after the elections.
Mayawati said BSP, since its inception, has been contesting elections
on its own and one or two electoral alliances it made in states caused
more loss than benefit to the party.
in Uttar Pradesh has become very strong after the Panchayat elections
which was conducted with paper ballots. While it lost in the Lok Sabha
elections because of the fraud EVMs which were tampered for Murderer of
democratic institutions (Modi).
Bahujan Samaj Party is the
only hope of the nation because it is not just a political party but it
is Techno_Politico-Social Transformation and Economic Emancipation
Movement loyally working for Sarvajan Hitaye Sarvajan Sukhaye i.e., for
the welfare, happiness and Peace for all societies. As CM of UP Ms
Mayawati proved through her movement’s best governance where she
distributed the wealth of the state equally among all sections of the
Acclaimed as the ‘Best Secular Party’ and the ‘Boldest
Socialist Party’, the Bahujan Samaj Party is, as its name implies, the
National Party of the Sarvajan Samaj (common folk), which is for
Sarvajan Hithaye Sarvajan Sukhaya i.e., love, peace,happiness and
welfare wanting progress and dream of a casteless and egalitarian
Country as enshrined in the Constitution to save democracy, liberty,
equality and fraternity.
The Bahujan Samaj Party is the National
Party that strives for the creation of a casteless Country by uplifting
the marginalized and downtrodden sections of the society and thus
realizing the dream of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the architect of the Modern
Constritution, who several times voiced his dream of seeing the SC/STs
(the aboriginal inhabitant Adi-Mulanivasis) in the throne of power in
Delhi by acquiring the Master Key.
It was founded in 1984 by
Kanshi Ram, the charismatic leader of the oppressed and downtrodden
masses belonging to the backward classes, untouchables and minority
communities, who had always been marginalized by the conservative caste
Hindutva practicing manusmriti by 1% intolerant,violent, militant,
shooting, lynching lunatic, mentally retarded, cannibal psychopath
chitpawan brahmin stealth, shadowy, discriminating Rakshasa Swayam
Sevaks full of hatred believing brahmins as 1st rate athmas (Souls)
Kshatrias as 2nd, Vyshias as 3rd ans shudras as 4th rate souls and
SC/STs having no souls so that they could be torchured. Kanshi Ram was
inspired by the Buddha who despised caste distinctions wh said all are
equal and Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the Messiah of Marginalised and the
Architect of the Modern Constitution.

Schedule for the General Elections to the Legislative Assemblies of Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry.
The terms of the Legislative Assemblies of Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu,
West Bengal and Puducherry are normally due to expire as follows:
Tamil Nadu 22.05.2016
West Bengal 29.05.2016
per the established practice, the Election Commission holds the General
Elections to the Legislative Assemblies of the States whose terms
expire around the same time, together.
By virtue of its powers,
duties and functions under Article 324 read with Article 172(1) of the
Constitution of India and Section 15 of Representation of the People
Act, 1951, the Commission is required to hold elections to constitute
the new Legislative Assemblies in the States of Assam, Kerala, Tamil
Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry before expiry of their present
The total number of Assembly Constituencies in the States of
Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry and seats reserved for the
Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes, as determined by the Delimitation Commission
under the Delimitation Act, 2002, are as under: -
(*In Assam, territorial
determination of Assembly Constituencies is as per Delimitation of
Parliamentary and Assembly Constituencies Order, 1976)
Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail)
VVPAT will be used in all the five poll
going states as per the details in the table below:
No. of ACs with VVPAT deployment
Stations and Special Facilitation
number of Polling Stations in the poll going States as on the date of final
publication of electoral rolls are as follows:
No. of Polling Stations
No. of Polling Stations
VVPATs will be used in just 14,066 out of 1,90,162
(13.5%) polling stations across the 5 poll-bound states/UT and the List of Assembly
Constituencies in each State where VVPAT will be used in the forthcoming
elections is placed at “Annexure VI”.
86.5 % voters in all the above states are deprived of paper audit trail machines used to enhance transparency. No preservation of secrecy.
Hence no “Leveraging Technology for Transparent and Credible Elections”, which
stressed that secrecy of voting will be zealously preserved.
Instead of CJI Takur breaking down in front of Murderer of democratic institutions(Modi),
CJI’s most appropriate dig to the Murderer of democratic institutions
(Modi) is to dismiss the Central and all state governments selected by
the fraud EVMs and order for fresh elections with paper ballots as
followed by 80 democracies of the world. Then the world will see the
Murderer of democratic institutions(Modi) controlled by 1%
retarded cannibal psychopath chitpawan brahmin RSS (Rakshasa Swayam
Sevaks) and all its avathars VHP (Venomous Hindutva Psychopaths), ABVP
(All Brahmin Venomous Psychopaths) Bhajan Dal etc., working for
manusmriti through stealth shadowy discriminating hindutva cult for
CJI SADHASIVAM, shirked its duty & committed a grave error of
judgment by allowing in phased manner Fraud Tamperable EVMs on the
request of CEC SAMPATH because of Rs.1600 crore cost to replace them
and dealt a fatal blow to the Country’s democracy. Ex CJI did not order
for ballot paper system to be brought in. No such precautionary measure
was decreed by the apex court. Ex CJI did not order that till the time
this newer set of about 13,00,000 voting machines is manufactured in
full & deployed totally. All the people in 80 democracies in the
world who simply done away with fradulent EVMs should not recognise
Murderer of democratic institutions(Modi). These Insecure EVMs must be
scraped and Fresh Lok Sabha and all the State Assembly elections
conducted with these EVMs must be scraped and Fresh elections must be
ordered to save Democracy, Liberty, Fraternity and Equality a Enshrined
in the Constitution.Because of this error of judgement all democracy,
liberty, equality and fraternity loving people are now broken down.The
EC has not bothered to publish entire list of candidates contesting for
elections with their party affiliation and details of their property and
criminal background in its official website in the voters interest and must also conduct all the elections with paper ballots.
Now the CEC says that all the EVMs will be replaced in the 2019 general
2019 general elections to have paper-trail electronic voting machines:
Nasim Zaidi, CEC
Mayawati said parties in Uttar Pradesh conspired to defeat BSP :
Mayawati’s BSP got 80% seats UP panchayat Elections with Paper Ballots
while she could not get even a single seat in Lok Sabha Elections
because the fraud EVMs were tampered.
As CM of UP her governance was the best and became eligible to become PM.
the RSS while it was in opposition favoured paper ballots. Now after
gobbling the Master Key through the very same fraud EVMs are silent.
RSS favours paper ballots, EVMs subjected to public scrutiny
Joining the controversy regarding the reliablity of Electronic
Voting Machines (EVMs) which have been questioned by political
parties, the RSS today asked the Election Commission (EC) to revert
back to tried and tested paper ballots and subject EVMs to public
scrutiny whether these gadgets are tamper proof. In an editorial
titled ‘Can we trust our EVMs?’, The Organiser, the RSS mouthpiece,
noted it was a fact that till date an absolutely tamper-proof machine
had not been invented and credibility of any system depends on
‘transparency, verifiability and trustworthiness’ than on blind and
atavistic faith in its infallibility. The issue is not a ‘private
affair’ and it involves the future of India. Even if the EVMs were
genuine, there was no reason for the EC to be touchy about it, the
paper commented. The Government and the EC can’t impose EVMs as a fait
accompli on Indian democracy as the only option before the voter.
There were flaws like booth capturing, rigging, bogus voting,
tampering and ballot paper snatching in the ballot paper system of
polling leading the country to switch over to the EVMs and all these
problems were relevant in EVMs too. Rigging was possible even at the
counting stage. What made the ballot papers voter-friendly was that
all aberrations were taking place before the public eye and hence open
for corrections whereas the manipulations in the EVMs is entirely in
the hands of powers that be and the political appointees manning the
sytem, the paper commented. The EVM has only one advantage —
’speed’ but that advantage has been undermined by the staggered polls
at times spread over three to four months. ‘’This has already killed
the fun of the election process,'’ the paper noted. Of the dozen
General Elections held in the country, only two were through the EVMs
and instead of rationally addressing the doubts aired by reputed
institutions and experts the Government has resorted to silence its
critics by ‘intimidation and arrests on false charges’, the paper
observed, recalling the arrest of Hyederabad-based technocrat Hari
Prasad by the Mumbai Police. Prasad’s research has proved that the
EVMs were ‘vulnerable to fraud’. The authorities want to send a
message that anybody who challenges the EC runs the risk of
persecution and harassment, the RSS observed. Most countries
around the world looked at the EVMs with suspicion and countries like
the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Ireland had all reverted back to
paper ballots shunning EVMs because they were ‘easy to falsify, risked
eavesdropping and lacked transparency’. Democracy is too precious
to be handed over to whims or an opaque establishment and network of
unsafe gizmos. ‘’For the health of Indian democracy it is better to
return to tried and tested methods or else elections in future can
turn out to be a farce,'’ the editorial said.

However, only 20,000 such voting
machines have been provided for the entire country in 2014
election! This country has 29 states now — with Telagana being the
most of them, depending upon their size etc., either about 400 VVPAT
machines are being deployed, or some such similar ridiculous
number — more or less — has been made available in the length and
breadth of the country.
CJI takes a dig at Murderer of democratic institutions (Modi): ‘We work during break, not just go to Manali’
EVMs insecure. Scrap them. Order fresh Lok Sabha elections and all the State Assembly elections conducted with these EVMs
have been under a cloud of suspicion over their alleged tamparability
and security problems during elections (especially after the 2009
general elections). After rulings of Delhi High Court, Supreme Court and
demands from various political parties, Election Commission decided to
introduce EVMs with Voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) system. The
Voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) system is introduced in 8 of
543 parliamentary constituencies as a pilot project in Indian general
BSP is not only a political party but also a
movement of societal change. Hence this technological game of 1%
Chitpawan RSS plan has to be defeated by strengthening the 99%
intellectuals by exposing the fradulent EVMs as done by 80 democracies
of the world in the larger interest of Sarvajan Hitaye Sarvajan Sukhaye
i.e., for the peace, happiness and welfare of all societies including
SC/STs/ OBCs/ Minorities and the poor brahmins and baniyas for
distributing the wealth of this country among all sections of the
society as enshrined in the Constitution by making the Supreme Court to
pass orders to replace all fradulent EVMs and till such time to scrap
all elections conducted by these fradulent EVMs and then to conduct
elections with tamper proof voting system to save democracy, equality,
fraternity and liberty.
Ms Mayawati ex Chief Minister of Uttar
Pradesh and Chief of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) won in the Panchayat
Elections conducted through paper ballots while it could not win a
single seat in Lok Sabha elections conducted through EVMs vulnerable to
fraud. As CM of UP, her governance was the best by distributing the
wealth proportionally among all sections of the society and became
eligible to become the Prime Minister of this country. This was not
tolerated by the traditional manuvadis. So the fraud EVMs were tampered
to defeat her.
Ms. Mayawati Ji-led government formed on 13 May, 2007 in Uttar Pradesh,
after its four-year term, has kindled a new ray of “bright” future
among the general public in the State, especially the SC/STs, backwards,
religious minorities and upper-caste poor in respect of law and order
and crime control together with development and public welfare
This very government, by pursuing the path shown by
great saints, gurus and seers born in backward classes, especially
Mahtma Jotiba Phule, Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj, Shri Narayana Guru,
Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar and Manyawar Shri Kanshiram Ji in
development and public welfare activities with government following the
policy of “Sarvajan Hitay – Sarvajan Sukhay”.
Vote and Support “Bahujan Samaj Party”
to honour these backward-born great “Saints, Gurus and Seers”, various
magnificent spots, memorials, museums, parks, etc have been constructed
in the state, on which the total budgeted government amount spent is
even less than 1%; the remaining funds having spent on law and order,
crime control, development and public welfare activities.
last four years, the central government did not release on time its
share payable to the state totalling Rs. 21,385 crore. If this amount
had been paid by the centre in time, achievements of the state
government could have been far far better.
Not only this, the
“special economic package’ of Rs. 80,000 crore sought from the central
government for the total development of the state, especially
Bundelkhand and Poorvanchal in view of the poor and pitiable economic
conditions inherited from the previous governments, no money was
received from the central government at all.
government’s new development strategy several major projects /schemes on
the PPP-model, like the Ganga Express-way, Yamuna Express-way and Upper
Ganga canal were prepared to spur development in the state in which no
central investments were involved except a departmental ‘no objection ‘
from them; the centre, however, did not cooperate even in this matter.
yet, with “ correct mobilization of resources and improved financial
management” the state government generated an atmosphere
Development, notable achievements of which are enumerated below:

booklet, the former Hon’ble Chief Minister, Ms Mayawati Ji, from 1st
February, 2011 to 2nd March 2011 i.e., for full one month, made surprise
inspections to take stock of law and order situation and creime control
in all the 72 districts, together with development and public welfare
activities, with strict action taken against authorities, if anything
wanting was detected. Necessary directions and guidance for improvement
were also given.

Pradesh Chief Minister Hon’ble Ms Mayawati Ji led government has been “
highly promising and the best” in the area of “development and public
Every policy of Uttar Pradesh Govt. is based on ‘Sarvajan Hitay – Sarvajan Sukhay’
Important and Historic Initiative for Law & Order and Crime Control
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 the “Gangster Act” against about 40,000 professional offenders.

were arrested, including those “carrying on the head a reward” upto Rs.5

between Rs.50,000 – Rs. 5,00,000 were “killed” by the police in self
7. Also, thousands of anti-social elements/goondas
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
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.

register “fake” reports.

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”.
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.

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.

from these, many more important steps were taken, a detailed account of
which is given in a booklet published by the government, highlighting
its achievements during the last four years.
In brief, to get the

“These regional parties give you freebies. Don’t vote for them,” she said.
Virtually attacking Dravidian parties in Tamil Nadu offering
freebies in their poll manifesto, BSP supremo Mayawati today asked
voters not to be lured by such inducements, saying they “will not solve
your problems.” “Regional parties will lure you with freebies like cell
phones. But they won’t solve your problems,” she said at an election
While the ruling has promised cell phones free of cost and
100 units of power to all if voted to power, another Dravidian party has assured free 3G/4G
connections. Seeking votes for her party candidates in the Assembly
polls to be held here on May 16, Mayawati said that people require jobs
and an end to poverty. “These regional parties give you freebies. Don’t
vote for them. You have to vote for the right party that will give you
jobs and put an end to poverty,” she said at a well-attended rally..
Such a ‘right party’ is her BSP, she claimed while referring to the
various pro-people measures implemented by her party-led government in
Uttar Pradesh in its four terms. She said her party has never released a
manifesto as “we believe in doing and not saying.” Despite 68 years
since Independence, the economic condition of the weaker sections like
Muslims, SC/STs and OBCs did not show any progress, the former Uttar
Pradesh chief minister alleged and slammed different central governments
for “not doing anything for their upliftment”.
She expressed concern over crimes against SC/STs, especially women.
“Not a day passes without crimes against SC/ST women in the country,”
she said referring to the brutal rape and murder of a SC law student
Even in Tamil Nadu, the voice of the weaker sections is being
“muzzled” and no action is being taken against perpetrators of crimes
against SC/STs across the country, Mayawati alleged. “Let alone getting
justice, even an FIR cannot be registered,” she claimed.
The BSP chief alleged that most parties came to power with the “help
of big corporates” and therefore any economic policies are drafted
keeping them in mind and not the common people. BJP and RSS are trying
to put an end to reservation in education and job, by seeking ‘review’
of the same, she alleged. Mayawati specifically singled out the BJP-led
Central government, alleging that while the party was involving the
corporates, it is however non-committal in providing reservation in the
