Bahenji ! No Blame game Please.


After the recent jolt by the voters Mayawati and her party BSP are in a great shock. She is blaming Muslims for her set back that may either had left her as a PM of India, as she had dreamt. But why only Muslims, why doesn’t she blame herself for her failure.


None other but Mayawati herself is to be blamed. She over estimated her success in the assembly polls held some two years ago in Uttar Pradesh. Instead of consolidating her position she started day dreaming. What have she done for the state during her rule and especially for the Muslims that she is so annoyed?
Muslims had overwhelmingly supported her during the last elections but she did nothing for the welfare of the biggest minority in the state. Instead he credited her success to her social engineering formulae and Brahmin-Dalit support. She ignored the fact that without Muslims her successes haven’t been possible, especially if Muslims had gone with Samajwadi Party who lost about ninety seats with the margin of less then thousand votes. What she did for Muslims can be estimated by going through these facts.
1. She nominated five of her men to Rajya Sabha and none of them was a Muslim. In the name of minority a non-Muslim was appointed and not from the U.P but of Punjab
2. More then hundred of her men were appointed chairmen and deputy chairman to various corporations granting them all the status of state minister but the Muslims were less then one percent of the total.
3. Only two or three Muslims could find their place in the state cabinet which was almost shameful in comparison to the Muslim support to her party who even voted for her non-Muslim candidates in the name of secularism which Brahmins may never have did.
4. The scholarships for the students were curbed almost to half of which worst affected were Muslims. Also no action was taken against the culprits o scholarship scam.
5. No development work was undertaken in the Muslim localities. Even in the areas like Bijnore district where party bagged seven out of eight assembly seats.
6. The Madarsa modernization plan was put to cold bag and no step was taken for the reform in minority education.
7. Urdu teachers were deprived of their jobs for which hey have to run door to street and found themselves engaged in the court proceedings. The worst affected were the Muslims again.
8. Mayawati cannot count even a one new school, college or hospital in Muslims localities of the state.
9. In the name of revenge Kanya Vidhyadhan scheme was abandoned. Most of the beneficiaries to the scheme were Dalits, Backwards and the Muslims
10. No development work was undertaken during her regime except that of Ambedkar Park and statues.
Now for what she is blaming the Muslims is above understanding of a common Muslim like me. Along with the above mentioned reasons her administration filed to deliver some better from the previous one. She was crowned with much higher expectations to curb the crime rate and corruption in the state and to bring it back on the right track that a stable government can only do. In the name of crime control no FIR’s are being lodged. No registration of crime can only result in the juggling of statistics and not in the real change.
India needs Prime Minister with a vision for the country not a juggler or merely a demagogue. For the purpose Mayawati has to go very long. I don’t mean that she cant be a Prime Minister. She can but she has to make some extra ordinary efforts. Merely by blaming others and claiming herself a daughter of Dalit being hurdled by bourgeois isn’t enough. This will only lead to further decline. Even the Dalits who are better educated then ever and more liberalized in thought will not tolerate this for long. If their expectations remain unfulfilled they will surely go for an alternative. In such condition whom will she blame?
