NEW DELHI: Samajwadi Party supremo
Mulayam Singh Yadav appears to be in for some tough times in the Supreme Court
ahead of the general elections.
Close on the heels of it questioning
the CBI’s volte face to close the DA cases against Yadav and his kin, the apex
court on Monday admitted a petition by BSP leader Barkhu Ram Varma questioning
the acquittal of the former chief minister in the case under the SC/ST
(Prevention of Atrocities) Act for the alleged manhandling of BSP supremo
Mayawati in a Lucknow guest house in 1995.
When Mulayam Singh Yadav
was in power, the Allahabad High Court had on January 28, 2004, quashed the
charges under the SC/ST Act against Yadav and others saying the offending words
were used in Yadav’s residence, which was not a public place and that the public
was not present at that time.
The HC, taking a lenient view, had
termed that it was a mere heated discussion between two rival parties and that
there was no evidence to indicate that the accused had an intention to humiliate
members of the SC community.
The HC had quashed the chargesheet
against Yadav, Azam Khan, Masood Ahmad, Beni Prasad Verma, Dhani Ram Verma, Baby
Ram Yadav, Uma Kant Yadav, Mohammad Arshad, Sangram SIngh, Shiv Pal Yadav and
Appearing for the Mayawati government, senior advocate
K K Venugopal and additional advocate general Shail Kumar Dwivedi, argued that
the HC erred completely in construing what is a public place under the SC/ST
Act. “If the chief minister’s residence, accessed most of the time of the day by
people from various walks of life, was not a public place, then it would be a
complete misreading of the Act,” they argued.
A Bench comprising
Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice P Sathasivam, after hearing the
counsel, agreed to admit the appeal for detailed hearing and posted it for
hearing in the first week of May, which in all possibility could have a close
proximity to the general elections giving a chance to Mayawati to whip up the

While giving this information to media representatives at Lucknow today, the C.M. said that the Central Government was not making any special effort to lessen the burden of the middle class, poor families and farmers from rising prices. Ms. Mayawati said that due to global recession a crisis of employment has emerged for the educated youth and middle class families. Simultaneously plummeting stock market because of exit of capital coupled with heavy profit by the foreign financial institutions resulted in a loss of thousands crore of rupees of small investors. She said that instead of providing relief to the middle class and poor farmers by formulating policies in the interests of these classes the Central Government is making policies favouring the capitalists. The Chief Minister while providing comparative detail of oil prices in international and domestic markets in support of her statement, said that when the present Central Government came to power, in June, 2004 the price of crude oil in international market was 34.22 dollars per barrel, and in the domestic market petrol was available at Rs. 35.71 per litre while diesel was available at cost of Rs. 22.74 per litre. She said that on various occasions the Central Government from time to time hiked the price of petrol and diesel on the pretext of increasing international oil prices and in the latest increase during June, 2008 the price of petrol was raised to Rs. 50.56 per litre and that of diesel to Rs. 34.80 per litre. Ms. Mayawati said that the Central Government was putting extra burden on the citizens on the false excuse of rising oil prices in the international market and now when the crude oil prices in the international market have nearly reached the year-2004 level, the move of the Central Government of reducing petrol prices by Rs. 5 and that of diesel by Rs. 2 was merely a sham. She said that prior to this decision of the Central Government; the public had already suffered from the woe of recession because of which its sufferings had doubled. The Chief Minister said that because of this, her Government has asked the Central Government to bring the domestic oil prices to that of year 2004 level and to minimally reduce petrol and diesel prices by Rs. 10 per litre for both. *******

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati, while laying the foundation of
schemes worth Rs. 948.98 crore for the all-round development of Varanasi and Kannauj,
said that urban regeneration was the top priority of her Government. She said
that during one and a half year long tenure of her Government several important
steps had been taken in this direction. These steps included schemes for the
all-round development of Vrindavan, which is an important tourist place and

than Rs. 800 crore for Varanasi
and 21 schemes costing more than Rs. 148 crore for Kannauj.
a function organised at her 5-Kalidas Marg official residence here today for
laying the foundation of these schemes, she said that financial arrangements
had been made for these schemes. She said that the previous governments made
only announcements, but never issued financial sanctions in time, that was the
reason why most of the schemes were confined to paper only. She said that her
Government always honoured its words. She directed the Chief Secretary, Cabinet
Secretary and Additional Cabinet Secretary to monitor these schemes besides
monitoring schemes announced for Mathura-Vrindavan, so that these schemes could
be completed within stipulated time. She said that the Chairman of the State
Advisory Council Mr. Satish Chandra Mishra would review the progress of these
schemes from time to time and apprise her of their progress. She said that
time-bound implementation of development schemes was the top priority of the
Government and any laxity in it would invite tough action against the guilty.
She said that the State Government, despite its limited resources, wanted to
carry out all round development of important cities of the State. She said that
the Government had demanded Rs. 80,000 crore package from the Centre for the
all round development of the State, but the Centre had not provided even a
single penny so far.
Ms. Mayawati said that the State
Government had decided to develop Varanasi
as an international tourist spot. It has also decided to develop the Buddhist
Circuit. Besides, the State Government also intends to provide high quality
infrastructure and community services to the people of Varanasi. With
this objective, the foundation of flyovers,
construction/repair/widening/ strengthening/beautification of roads, drinking
water supply, sewerage, drainage system, solid waste management, improvement in
the power supply of the historical places etc. costing Rs. 800.68 crore had

Ravidas Jayanti, she had announced several developmental works for the Varanasi district,
besides completion of works announced by previous governments had also been
ordered in a time-bound and qualitative manner. She said that all these
projects were going on full swing.
upon the important decisions taken for the development of Varanasi,
the C.M. said that action had been initiated on the Heritage Plan of Varanasi
so that it could be developed as an International Heritage and TouristCity and also to keep its mythological
character intact. The Heritage Plan would be completed in the next six months. The
State Government, with a view to preserving the world famous zari work, had decided to place zari craftsmen along side the weavers
for power dues. She further said that directives had been issued to invite
financial bids for the construction of multi-level underground car parking
projects at Beniabagh, Shaheed Udhyan and Maidagin on
public-private-partnership (PPP) basis costing Rs. 142 crore so that the
traffic system of Varanasi could be improved.
Mayawati said that she had laid foundation of various schemes costing more than
Rs. 148 crore for the development of Kannauj so that the lost glory of this
place could be restored. She reminded that Kannauj was made a district on 18
September 1997 during her second tenure. She had formulated various schemes for
the all round development of Kannauj at that time, but she didn’t get much time
to translate them into reality. She said that now those development schemes
were being launched again and after their completion the people of Kannauj
would get a lot of facilities. She said that the M.P. elected from Kannauj had
also ignored his constituency.
be recalled that during 2008-09 the Government launched development schemes on
a large scale for the all-round development of the State. Under it, Rs. 396
crore schemes for Agra, Rs. 250 crore schemes
for Vrindavan-Mathura, Rs. 170 crore schemes for Lucknow have been included. Besides, the

arise. Being spellbound for thousands of years is long enough! In our
age, the battles for freedom and supremacy are being waged on the
mental planes. In order to fulfill prophecy and emerge victorious, we
must be armed with an over standing of our origins, history and the
machinations of those who conspire against us. Any part that we can
play in such a revolution of consciousness is our willing service to a
resurgent Pure Land.
