Mayawati to visit Saharanpur tomorrow.


With the recent caste clashes in Saharanpur giving Mayawati an
opportunity to regain lost ground among her support base, the BSP chief
will visit the scene of violence on Tuesday.

Mayawati’s visit to
the trouble-torn area comes in the backdrop of the Dalit outfit Bhim
Sena staging a massive dharna in Delhi over the issue. The organisation
of Dalit youths across seven states in northern India, was founded by a
young lawyer Chandrashekhar two years
ago, and shot into prominence during the clashes. After the BSP’s
drubbing in the recent Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, it will be
Mayawati’s first attempt to reach out to her Dalit constituency.


She will leave for Saharanpur from Delhi by road to visit Shabbirpur
village in Badagaon area, a party release issued here said. Mayawati had
last week denounced the Yogi Adityanath government for the clashes
alleging that it had failed to fulfil its foremost constitutional duty
of providing security to people. Earlier this month, one person was
killed and around 15 were injured as members of different castes clashed
over the the garlanding of Rajput king Maharana Pratap’s statue.

Around 20 to 25 upper caste ‘thakur’ community youths of Shabbirpur
village were on their way to attend a function for garlanding the statue
of Maharana Pratap organised in Simlana village under Badgaon police
station area when Dalit locals objected to playing of loud music,
triggering an exchange of heated words.

The altercation soon
snowballed into a full-blown clash with both groups throwing stones and
bricks at each other. A police team somehow pacified the upper-caste
youths and asked them return but they came back with more people to
Shabbirpur village and indulged in brick batting and arson, torching 15
to 20 houses of the scheduled castes.

As many as 16 people from
both sides were injured in the incident. Sumit Rajput (35), who suffered
injuries in the violence, died later. Enraged over the killing, an
angry mob torched several houses of Dalits in the village and also set
afire several police and other vehicles


Mayawati Prabhu Das
commonly fondly known as
Mayawati is an Indian politician heading the Bahujan Samaj Party. Being
the member of the party since itsinception in 1984, she later became the
party president in 2001. She has served as the Chief Minister of Uttar
Pradesh four times (briefly in 1995, 1997, 2002-2003 and 2007-2012).
Mayawati has been the youngest woman Chief Minister and the first ever
female Scheduled Caste member to become Chief Minister of any state.
After losing in the 2012 legislative assembly elections to Samajwadi
Party, she resigned from her post as a party leader on March 2012, and
later that month she was elected to a seat in Rajya Sabha through
acclamation. As the leader of the party, she has also been lauded for
mobilizing funds for her party.Born on 15th January 1956 in Delhis
Shrimati Sucheta Kriplani hospital, Mayawati has 6 brothers. Her father
Prabhu Das was a postal employee at Badalpur in Gautam Buddha Nagar in
1975, her mothers name is Ram Rati. In her
family, the sons were sent to private schools whereas daughters went to
low-performing government schools. Mayawati completed her B.A. in 1975
from Kalindi Womens College under the Delhi University. After the
completion of B.A., she earned a B.Ed. from VMLG College, Ghaziabad in
1976. Thereafter in 1983, she did her LLB from Delhi University. After
completing her B.Ed. course in 1976, she started teaching students in
Inderpuri JJ Colony, Delhi and was also preparing for the IAS exams.

Sometime in 1977, a well kown Scheduled Caste politician Kanshi Ram
visited her family home and was highly impressed by Mayawati’s speaking
style and motivated her to join politics. According to biographer Ajay
Bose, Kanshi Ram told her that I can make you such a big leader one day
that not one but a whole row of IAS officers will line up for your
orders. In 1984, Kanshi Ram founded the Bahujan Samaj Party and the
party focused as a platform to bring social change and to improve the
welfare of the weakest of the Indian society consisting of the Bahujans
or SC/STs, Other Backward castes and religious minorities. Kanshi Ram
included Mayawati as the member of the party marking her first step in
Indian politics. She was first elected as a Member of Parliament in 1989
representing Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh in the 9th Lok Sabha elections. In
1994, she became a member of Rajya Sabha for the first time. Kanshi Ram
remained the president of BSP until 2001 however, due to his
deteriorating health in the 1990s, the party’s leadership shifted in the
hands of Mayawati, a former school teacher. In 1993, Mayawati made a
coalition with Samajwadi Party in the assembly elections and helped
Mulayam Singh Yadav in becoming the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

However on 2nd June 1995, Mayawati withdrew her support from the
government after accusing Mulayam Singh Yadav for sending goons at her
place, keeping her party legislators hostage at the Lucknow guest house
as well as trying to break her party. She also accused Mulayam Singh
Yadav that he shouted castes abuse at her. After withdrawing support
from Samajwadi Party Mayawati sought her support to Bharatiya Janata
Party and became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh on 3rd June 1995.

She created history by becoming the first ever Scheduled Caste women in
India to serve as the Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh. On October 1995,
the BJP withdrew support to her and fresh elections were called after
Presidents rule. She won to the Lok Sabha elections in 1996 from two
different constituencies and chose to serve Harora. After that from 1996
to 1998, she also served as MLA in the U.P state Assembly. On 21st
March 1997, she again became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh marking
her second term as the Chief Minister and retained the post till 20th
September 1997. In the 12th Lok Sabha elections of 1998, she was elected
as member representing Akbarpur constituency. In 1999, she became a
member of the 13th Lok Sabha. Despite Mayawati leading the party, Kanshi Ram remained
the party’s president until 2001. Being a diabetic and a host of other
serious ailments, he wasn’t able to lead an active political life. On
December 15, 2001, Kanshi Ram in a rally in Lucknow declared Mayawati
the then Vice-President of the party as his political successor.

On February she was re elected for the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly.

On March 2002, she resigned from the
Akbarpur Lok Sabha seat and on 3rd May 2003, she became the Chief
Minister of Uttar Pradesh for the third time and remained on this post
till 26th August 2002. Following the ill health of Kanshi Ram, she
became the National President of BSP on 18th September 2003. In May
2004, she was re elected from Akbarpur for the 14th Lok Sabha. In July
2004, she resigned from Lok Sabha and became the member of Rajya Sabha
for the second time. On 27th August, she was elected as the National
President of BSP for the second time. Kanshi Ram died on October 2006 due to a severe heart attack. Mayawati performed
the last rites of Kanshi Ram in Buddhist tradition which is
traditionally performed by the male heirs of the family in Hindu
tradition. In the 2007 Uttar Pradesh elections, BSP won the majority and
she became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for the fourth time and
retained the post of the Chief Minister till March 2012. In the 2007
elections, Mayawati had the slogan to convert Uttar Pradesh to Uttam
Pradesh. The governance of the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh was
very well praised and the government began a major crackdown on the
irregularities made by the police department during the Mulayam Singh
government. In this process, over 18,000 policemen lost their jobs for
irregularities in their hiring and 25 IPS officers were suspended for their involvement in corruption.

She
also introduced transparency into the recruiting process, including
posting the results of selection exams online. In 2008, Mayawati
launched Manyawar Shri Kanshiram Ji Shahri Garib Awas Yojna a scheme to
build low cost houses for urban poor and completed two rounds of
construction till 2012 when her tenure of Chief Minister ended. The BSP
government is also praised for maintenance of law and order in Uttar
Pradesh and for their significant contributions in the field of
infrastructure and medical facilities in the rural and urban areas
Mayawati is widely regarded as a self made woman and she began her political career with hardwork and her own struggle.

Mayawati
is unmarried and has dedicated her life to serve the weaker sections of
the society. Mayawati is criticized for wasting the tax payers money by
building several statues of icons of Buddhism, Hinduism and SC/STs
including herself during her tenure as the Chief Minister. The CBI in
2002 raided her house suspecting financial irregularities related to Taj
Heritage Corridor, however in June 2007, the then Governor T.V.
Rajeshwar declared that there is no evidence of her involvement. . On
9th August 2009, Mayawati declared that she has chosen her successor
from the Scheduled Caste community who is 18-20 years junior to her and
she has pinned down the name in a sealed packet in a safe custody. The
name of the successor will be declared after her death in particular and
the 99%
Sarvajan Samaj i.e., all societies belonging to SC/STs/OBCs/Minorities
and the poor Upper castes in general.

In 2007 Ms Mayawati as Chief ninister of Uttar
pradesh gave th best governance by way of distributing the wealth of
state among all societies as enshrined in our Constitution.

Basically,
seeking 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.

While the 1%
intolerant, violent, militant, shooting, lynching, lunatic, mentally
retarded, cannibal chitpawan brahmins of RSS headed by Mohan Bagawath
with an inherent problem of trying to intermingle religion with
politics. The basis of religion 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 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 by tampering the fraud
EVMs, it has to forego its high moral ideals and become debased by
worldly political demands.

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 kamma, the lack of real
satisfaction or everlasting happiness in the world characterized by
dukkha (unsatisfactoriness), anicca (impermanence), and anatta
(egolessness). To the followers of the Awakenen One with Awareness,
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 mind so as to expand his mental
potential and achieve his ultimate aim of awakenment.

While
recognizing the usefulness of separating religion from politics and the
limitations of political systems in bringing about peace and happiness,
there are several aspects of the Awakened One with Awareness’s teaching
which have close correspondence to the political arrangements of the
present day. Firstly, the Awakened One with Awareness
spoke about the equality of all human beings long before Abraham
Lincoln, and that classes and castes are artificial barriers erected by
society. The only classification of human beings, according to the
Awakened One with Awareness, is based on the quality of their moral
conduct. Secondly, the Awakened One with Awareness
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 with Awareness’s successor, the members of the Order
were to be guided by the Dhamma and Vinaya, or in short, the Rule of
Law. Until today very member of the Order is to abide by the Rule of Law
which governs and guides their conduct which was strictly followed by
Ms Mayawati as Chief Minister.

Fourthly, the Awakened One with Awareness encouraged the spirit of
consultation and the democratic process. This is shown within the
community of the Order 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 Order 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 with Awareness in
this country 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 Murderer
of democratic institutions (Modi) has done away with such a system by
gobbling the Master Key by tampering the fraud EVMs to win elections.


The Awaken One with awareness approach to political power is the
moralization and the responsible use of public power. The Awaken One
with awareness
preached non-violence and peace as a universal message. He did not
approve of violence or the destruction of life, and declared that there
is no such thing as a ‘just’ war. He 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 Awaken One with awareness
teach non-violence and peace, He was perhaps the first and only
religious teacher who went to the battlefield personally to prevent the
outbreak of a war. He diffused tension between the Sakyas and the
Koliyas who were about to wage war over the waters of Rohini. He also
dissuaded King Ajatasattu from attacking the Kingdom of the Vajjis.

The Awaken One with awareness discussed
the importance and the prerequisites of a good government that was
sincerely by Ms Mayawati. He showed how the country could become
corrupt, degenerate and unhappy when the head of the government becomes
corrupt and unjust. He spoke against corruption and how a government
should act based on humanitarian principles.

The Awaken One with awareness
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.’(Anguttara Nikaya)

In the Cakkavatti Sihananda Sutta, the Awaken One with awareness
said that immorality and crime, such as theft, falsehood, violence,
hatred, cruelty, could arise from poverty. Kings and governments may try
to suppress crime through punishment, but it is futile to eradicate
crimes through force as done by Murderer of democratic institutions
(Modi)

In the Kutadanta Sutta, the Awaken One with awareness
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 as followed by Ms Mayawati.

In the Jataka, the Awaken One with awareness had given to rules for Good Government, known as ‘Dasa Raja Dharma’. These
ten rules can be applied even today which was done by Ms mayawati
government which wishes to rule the country peacefully. The rules are as
follows:

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) practise patience, and
10) respect public opinion to promote peace and harmony.

Regarding the behavior of rulers, He further advised as followed by Ms Mayawati:

- 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. — (Cakkavatti
Sihananda Sutta)

In the Milinda Panha,it is stated: ‘If a man like the Murderer of democratic institutions (Modi), who is
unfit, incompetent, immoral, improper, unable and unworthy of kingship,
has
enthroned himself a king or a ruler with great authority by
tampering, distorting and rigging the EVMs to win elections, he is
subject to be tortured‚ 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. Modi 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.’ In a Jataka story, it is mentioned that a ruler who punishes
innocent people and does not punish the culprit is not suitable to rule a country.

Therefore the
Honourable Chief Justice of India along with a collageium of Chief
Justices belonging to SC/STs/OBCs/Minorities and juries such as Ms
Mayawati, Nazeerudin Shah, Satishchandra Mishra may be pleased to
dissolve the Central and State governments selected by these fraud EVMs
and go for fresh elections with paper ballots to save democracy.

Since Ms
Mayawati belonged to Scheduled Caste Community The RSS and BJP conspired
to defeat her with the tampering, distorting and rigging the EVMs.
Hence they must be punished for practicing untouchability with the
prevention of atrocities act. They must be asked to pay a fine of the
entire budget to Ms Mayawati to enable her to distribute the wealth of
the country among all societies.

Let us appeal to the Computer Business Review and the American Institute for Behavioral Research and

Napolean’s suggested scribes have to do some investigative journalism ,and expose the CEC to save this MURDER of DEMOCRACY

[In these meetings [of the Anti-Hindu Code Bill Committee], its
primary participants, which included several members of the RSS,
characterised themselves as “religious warriors” who were fighting a
religious battle. On December 11, 1949, the RSS held a massive rally
in the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi where its members denounced the bills
in the strongest possible terms. The next day, a march was organised
to the Constituent Assembly where effigies of Ambedkar, Jawaharlal
Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah were burnt.

(Here, it’d be quite in the fitness of things to recall that Ambedkar
at, what’d eventually turn out to be, the very fag end of his life, in
late 1956, renounced Hinduism to embrace Buddhism in a well publicised
massive public event, in order to honour a commitment he made to
himself and his followers decadess back in 1935: “I was born a Hindu
because I had no control over this but I shall not die a Hindu.” [See:

Learning From Ambedkar
His struggle to reform Hindu society has lessons for the triple talaq debate

Written by Arnav Das Sharma | Updated: May 22, 2017 1:03 am

As the nation gears up for the landmark SC judgment, Ambedkar’s
unwavering commitment to the principles of liberalism is a lesson well
worth remembering.

When the Supreme Court delivers its verdict on the contentious triple
talaq issue, it would be, perhaps, one of the landmark promulgations
in independent India’s judicial history. If the SC were to declare
triple talaq unconstitutional, it could well open up the path for the
institution of a Uniform Civil Code (UCC) — an ideal that has been an
important demand of the BJP for a long time.

But as the arguments and counter-arguments are meted out in court, it
is worth looking back on the years that led to the formulation of the
landmark Hindu Code bills. It is pertinent to invoke this incident for
two reasons: One, much of our present debate on the UCC and the triple
talaq controversy is still under the shadow of that landmark event.

Second, the pioneering role that B.R. Ambedkar played in bringing
those bills to fruition. It is important to remember the degree of
opposition that the bills garnered during that time. For instance, in
March 1949, the Anti-Hindu Code Bill Committee was formed, which
enjoyed vast support from clerics and other conservative lawyers. As
Ramachandra Guha chronicles in India After Gandhi, the committee would
campaign against the reform bills from place to place.

***In these meetings, its primary participants, which included several
members of the RSS, characterised themselves as “religious warriors”
who were fighting a religious battle. On December 11, 1949, the RSS
held a massive rally in the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi where its members
denounced the bills in the strongest possible terms. The next day, a
march was organised to the Constituent Assembly where effigies of
Ambedkar, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah were burnt.***
[Emphasis added.

The version of the bill that Ambedkar wanted was never to be had. With
the first general election imminent, and fearing a massive Hindu
backlash, Nehru had to compromise. Besides, in the Constituent
Assembly, many amendments to the original bill were demanded; it took
more than a year to get even four clauses passed. Eventually, the bill
lapsed. This caused Ambedkar to resign as law minister.

At one point in his resignation letter, Ambedkar, expressing his
shock, writes: “The Cabinet unanimously decided that it [the Bill]
should be put through in this Parliament… As the discussion was going
on, the Prime Minister put forth a new proposal, namely, that the Bill
as a whole may not be got through within the time. The Prime Minister
suggested that we should select the Marriage and Divorce part.

The Bill in its truncated form went on. After two or three days… the
Prime Minister came up with another proposal. This time his proposal
was to drop the whole Bill, even the Marriage and Divorce portion.
This came to me as a great shock.” The reason for Ambedkar’s shock is
two-fold. First, arising from the failure to get the bill passed in
its entirety, and second, and more importantly, seeing the core
element of the bill — which was about marriage and divorce — rejected
as well.

Throughout his life, apart from fighting caste oppression, if there
was one cause Ambedkar espoused, it was that of gender emancipation.
As his writings testify, Ambedkar very clearly saw the way caste
endeared itself to masculinity in order to perpetuate itself. He
realised that the primary way to break caste oppression was to make
way for marriage reforms. This endeavour was tied to Ambedkar’s larger
radical role in taking the Hindu texts to task, by opening them up for
reinterpretation, a method by which Brahminical control over these
texts was removed. We see this very clearly in his formulation of the
Hindu Code Bill, where Ambedkar went back to the texts to reinforce
his arguments.

As the nation gears up for the landmark SC judgment, Ambedkar’s
pioneering role in trying to modernise Hindu society, and more than
anything else, his unwavering commitment to the principles of
liberalism is a lesson well worth remembering.

The writer, 29, is a doctoral fellow at the Delhi School of Economics.
His first novel, ‘Darklands’, will be published later this year
