Maya Eyes Dalit Muslim Alliance in UP Hits Out at Cow Protection Vigilantes
BSP president Mayawati is trying to script another comeback ahead of polls in Uttar Pradesh elections, this time using the parliamentary platform to wriggle out of a corner.The BSP supremo was first off the blocks this Monsoon session when she launched a scathing attack to sting the BJP where it hurts the most the barbaric flogging of Dalit youths in PM Narendra Modis home state Gujarat., Mayawati had turned the tables on the BJP, which along with its ideological mentor, had launched a pincer outreach to wean away BSPs core vote bank in UP.That is vintage Mayawati for you. Cornered and under pressure, she comes into her own.
In the past, she has encountered worse situations some even life threatening to consolidate her position within her core constituency.Within twenty four hours, she replaced Mulayam Singh Yadav to take oath as the youngest CM of the state with BJP support.Mayawati since then has been at the helm of the state three more times.In fact it is not the first time the BSP supremo has had to face invectives and slur both from adversaries and friend turned foes.Kanshi Ram called for a massive party rally at the historic Beghum Hazrat Mahal Park in Lucknow.At the end of the meeting, he took the district administration completely by surprise by asking BSP workers to follow him to the newspaper office.
The district administration was at its wits end to control a situation that could have turned ugly within no time.Whenever Mayawati has spoken in this first week of the Monsoon Session of Parliament, her interventions have been structured and measured to send a strong message to her core constituency.First, she has used the opportunity to settle the dalit ki beti vs daulat ki beti debate All the recent BSP deserters, including Swami Prasad Maurya, have left the party accusing Mayawati of putting a price tag on party nominations for assembly polls.The two communities are at the receiving end of this drive of the cow protection vigilantes in Gujarat and outside.
