On Tuesday, former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh defended the blue moon of Amethi and Raebareli for her ‘˜neech’ remarks and launched an attack on BJP prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi.
Behenji is quite agitated these days. She is fed up of all these men who question her singlehood, come and patronize her Uttar Pradesh and those who have emerged as new leader in her style of ‘Dalit’ politics. No wonder she is planning to join an all girls’ group of Amma and Didi.
But Behen Mayawati should not enter into a space where her political aspirations will be clubbed easily with her lies out in open.
On Tuesday, former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh defended the blue moon of Amethi and Raebareli for her ‘neech’ remarks and launched an attack on BJP prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi. Given her style of caste politics, the fact that she support corrupt UPA and is rattled by the thought that she might have to vacate her Delhi bunglow, it was quite an expected move.
Mayawati took an offence to Modi giving a caste-politics turn to the ‘neech’ comment by Ms Priyanka Vadra. She said that BJP was playing ‘despicable’ politics and that Modi should reveal his caste if he come from a lower caste background at all.
“What the Congress said was that he was playing low-level politics. He tried to reap benefits out of it throughout the day today (Tuesday). He is doing despicable politics in the garb of this issue,” the Bahujan Samaj Party leader said.
The Congress sympathizer may be driven by the fact that there are some chances, even though small, the third front and the ‘girl’ front will join hands to make her the PM candidate. The caste arithmetic in UP may also help her if at there is such a fractured mandate. But little does she know that her own past may come in front of her stalling her dreams.
The man she is calling ‘communal’ now was once her favourite. After 2002, Behenji had given a clean chit to Modi and had even campaigned hand-in-hand for him along side former PM AB Vajpayee.
A PTI report dated December 8, 2002, thus read: “Giving a clean chit to Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati on Sunday announced her party’s support to BJP in Gujarat Assembly polls saying it was morally bound to help the saffron party which was supporting it in UP.
The BSP would support BJP in 151 constituencies but would contest 31 seats on its own, Mayawati told a press conference in Lucknow.
The Chief Minister, who would accompany Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee for electioneering on Monday in Gujarat, said it was her party’s “moral responsibility” to support the BJP in Gujarat as it was supporting the BSP in UP.
Mayawati said the decision would not have any “adverse” effect on BSP’s Muslim vote bank in Uttar Pradesh.
Rejecting the Congress charge on Modi’s role in the communal violence that rocked Gujarat following Godhra massacre, mayawati said “a Chief Minister will never do anything which will bring bad name to his own government.”
“The charges against Modi are baseless,” she said.”
Now please tell us Behenji, are you feeling threatened? Or you are just an opportunist?
