Mayawati returns to the drawing board


Party posts have been reassigned to include more OBCs, who abandoned the BSP during the recent Assembly elections

After a dismal showing in Uttar Pradesh elections, the Bahujan Samaj
Party has wasted no time and is back to the drawing board to stitch
together a rainbow coalition of castes with a special focus on the Other
Backward Communities, which observers feel deserted it in large
numbers.

The BSP had experimented with a SC/ST-Muslim combination
for the Assembly polls even as a number of leaders belonging to the
backward castes jumped ship to join the BJP.

The party has re-organised its community-based bhaichara (brotherhood) committees and assigned duties to top leaders to increase presence among various castes.

Office bearers

The rainbow caste alliances are also
reflected in the party’s choices for posts in the legislature. Senior
leader Lalji Verma has been nominated leader of the Legislature Party.
Mr. Verma, a four-time MLA and former minister, is a Kurmi, among the
largest backward castes in the State.

After Swami Prasad Maurya,
an OBC, quit the party last year to join the BJP just months before the
election, BSP chief Mayawati had nominated Gaya Charan Dinkar, a fellow
Jatav (Dalit) as the Leader of the Opposition. Mr. Dinkar however, lost
his seat in the polls. Uma Shankar Singh, MLA from Rasara in Ballia, has
been appointed deputy leader in the Vidhan Sabha. Mr. Singh is a
Kshatriya and one of the few BSP MLAs who won with a handsome margin.

One
of the BSP’s Brahmin faces and old loyalist Ramveer Upadhyaya has been
named chief whip, while Hargovind Bhargava, a Pasi (Dalit), and Shah
Alam alias Guddu Jamali, a Muslim MLA from Azamgarh, have been made
whips of the legislature party.

To increase outreach among various
castes, BSP chief Mayawati has also handed out responsibilities to more
than a dozen leaders. Sources said a special focus would be on the 17
most backward castes (MBCs), which have steadily deserted the BSP over
the last decade.

“The
process of distributing responsibilities will continue. We have been
asked to increase presence of the party among these castes and approach
them with new formats,” said a senior BSP leader from Bundelkhand.

Banking on Kanshiram

Party
sources also said leaders have been instructed to gather at least 100
“influential or active persons” belonging to the castes assigned to them
from each of the 403 Vidhan Sabhas. Old speeches of BSP founder
Kanshiram would also be played in every village to connect youth with
him. “For that purpose, various coordinators have been asked to purchase
projectors,” said a source, who attended Ms. Mayawati’s meeting of
elected legislators and co-coordinators held in Lucknow on Thursday.

While
Rajya Sabha member Satish Mishra continues to be responsible for
connecting Brahmins to the BSP, Mayawati-aide Nasimuddin Siddiqui and
his son Afzal Siddiqui will do the job among Muslims.

Uma Shankar
Singh will be in-charge of bringing Thakurs into the BSP fold in
Purvanchal, while Thakur Jaiveer Singh will play the same role in west
UP.

Ram Achal Rajbhar, besides holding the post of State
president, is in-charge of connecting with Rajbhars, a most backward
caste. Similarly, Lalji Verma is assigned the Kurmi caste, while former
Leader of the Opposition Gaya Charan Dinkar will work among the
Prajapatis, also an MBC.

Former MLC Virendra Chauhan is in-charge
of the noniya chauhans (a backward caste), R.S. Kushwaha, of the Maurya
and Kushwaha communities, former MLC Lal Chand Nishad has been given the
riverine Mallah communities while the Kashyap community (OBC) will be
under Ram Murti, a party coordinator from Bareilly.

Apart from
reorganising the party, the BSP has also plans to stage demonstrations
on the 11th of every month on their opposition to EVMs. The BSP has
alleged that its poor showing in the elections was due to tampering of
EVMs. The protests will be staged in every district headquarters in U.P.
and other State capitals.

Meanwhile, the
resignations from the party continue. Former Minister Kamla Kant Gautam
and former OSD to Ms. Mayawati, Gangaram Ambedkar, have quit the party
accusing the chief of straying from the path of Kanshiram.

There is a Tamil adage “yanai vizhunthaal aadu kooda kitte poi vaalaattumam”-When an elephant falls ,even a goat would dare go near and wag its tail.

BSP never said all these. ‘The Hindu’ being the most progressive on planet earth
can’t think beyond caste/religion!

Justice Karnan rejects warrant issued by SC



Seeks Rs. 14 cr. in damages from Bench for stopping his work

Calcutta High Court judge C.S. Karnan has “refused to accept” the bailable warrant issued against him by the Supreme Court in a
suo motu
contempt of court order.

On Friday, West Bengal Director General
of Police (DGP), Surajit Kar Purkayastha, along with several
high-ranking officials went to Justice Karnan’s residence in the New
Town area on the eastern fringes of the city to hand over the warrant.

“I
rejected the same [the warrant] after assigning valid reasons. This
kind of demeaning acts from your Lordships and further perpetrating the
Atrocities Act ( Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes [ Prevention of
Atrocities Act], 1989) is absolutely out of law to the utter
embarrassment of a Dalit judge,” Justice Karnan stated in a letter to
the seven-judge Bench of the Supreme Court.

‘Stop harassment’

He also urged the Bench to “stop further harassments” and “uphold the dignity and decorum of our courts.”

Justice
Karnan sought a compensation of Rs. 14 crore from the seven judges of
the Supreme Court for having stopped his judicial and administrative
work.

In the letter he accused them of having disturbed his mind
and his normal life, “besides you have insulted me in the general
public…”

“Now all seven Judges shall pay a part of the
compensation within a period of seven days from the date of receipt of
this order,” he said.

The Supreme Court had earlier directed the DGP to serve the warrant on him.

Accordingly, the police team reached the judge’s house on Friday.

“The
DGP of West Bengal, the ADGP of Intelligence-Criminal Investigation
Department [CID] and a Superintendent of Police [SP] from Tamil Nadu,
along with about 20 police personnel, came to Justice Karnan’s residence
today [Friday] to hand over the warrant. But he refused to accept it,”
Justice Karnan’s lawyer W. Peter Ramesh told
The Hindu
.

He alleged that the police personnel “barged into the compound” of Justice Karnan’s residence.

“Not only did they [the police] enter the compound by force but they also slapped a security guard of the building,” he said.

He said that they were “considering legal action” against the police for “barging and trespassing” into the judge’s residence.

No force used: Police

However,
State police officials not only claimed that Justice Karnan “accepted”
the warrant but also denied the allegation that they had forcefully
entered the judge’s residence.

Speaking to
The Hindu
, Additional Director General of CID Rajesh Kumar, who visited the
judge’s residence said he had “accepted” it. “He gave his observation on
the warrant in writing and accepted it,” said Mr. Kumar.

Last
month the Supreme Court issued a contempt of court notice against
Justice Karnan for allegedly degrading the judicial institution.

Justice Karnan rejects warrant issued by SC

Calcutta
High Court judge Justice C S Karnan showed no signs of relenting on
Friday when attempts were made to deliver to him a bailable warrant
issued by the Supreme Court in a contempt case to ensure his appearance
before it on March 31. In a letter to the 7-judge bench headed by Chief
Justice J S Khehar that issued the warrant, Justice Karnan said he
rejected the warrant. Justice Karnan has sought a compensation of Rs 14
crore from the seven SC judges for having stopped his judicial and
administrative work. The SC initiated contempt proceedings against
Justice Karnan after he continuously levelled allegations against the
Madras high court chief justice and other judges. But he has said that
the SC judges have no rights to issue a warrant against a sitting judge
and alleged that he was being targeted for being a SC.
