‘Maya killed Kanshi Ram, hijacked his movement’: Swarn Kaur
Both Kanshi Ram and Mayawati lost a few elections before they won their way into Parliament. All she could do was to rush to the well of the House and hurl invectives at the Treasury benches. Her heavily oiled hair and sweaty body odour gave rise to snide remarks.
Kanshi Ram was comparatively more successful. It paid dividends, saving Mayawati from a murderous assault by supporters of Mulayam Singh and Kalyan Singh. Mayawati has been chief minister of Uttar Pradesh four times.
The first time she squandered money in erecting statues of Dalit icons, including herself. It was a vulgar form of self-deification. She also changed names of districts and transferred officers.
During her third tenure, she acquired real estate worth hundreds of crores in Delhi and elsewhere. She also loaded herself with gold and diamond jewellery. Far from being nauseated by those extravagances, Dalits felt proud that one of them could actually get what was beyond their wildest dreams. She achieved all this after her mentor was incapacitated by illness and senile dementia. Will Mayawati be able to become Prime Minister of India as some are speculating?

If men like Deve Gowda could become Prime Minister, so can any lallu panju. Mayawati has a lot more to her than some who have risen to the highest post. She has a larger political base. What she needs is to get her priorities right, and have a national and world vision. You can read all this in Behenji. It is well-researched, well-worded, objective and absorbing.
Leave apart her arch political rival Mulayam Singh Yadav, who is quite regular in making allegations on Mayawati, the BSP chief has not even spared her Rakhi bother Lalji Tandon who played a decisive role in forming a coalition government with Mayawati in Within 24 hours after Mayawati took charge of UP in May last year Tandon was asked to immediately vacate his government residence at Mal Avenue and within a week this bungalow was raised to the ground to make way for a BSP monument.
In a recent rally in Lucknow when Mayawati threw hints about her secret successor, she sent out a clear message that the Bahujan Samaj Party founded by Late Kanshi Ram in April has come a long way -- from a party which once believed in internal parliamentary democracy to a party which is being run on the whims and fancies of its self-styled 'dictator' Mayawati.
While critics remember Kanshi Ram as someone who had full faith in parliamentary democracy and constitutional morality, Mayawati clearly lacks these traits of her mentor. Under Mayawati, BSP has evolved into a party wrapped up under utmost secrecy.
As a senior BSP leader remarks: So what is it that makes BSP different and in a way interesting of all other political parties? Does Mayawati believe in inner party democracy or not? CNN-IBN has tried to find out Mayawati's vision, her political ambitions, her philosophy and her style of running the party organization.

Long off-the record conversations with several BSP leaders and even committed party workers have revealed several interesting features of the Maya Raj. Mayawati's views on women Herself a woman, Mayawati pays a lot of attention to the needs of BSP's women karyakartas. Party insiders say Mayawati has never given women any significant post in her party organization. The reason for this is quite fascinating. Barring exceptions, therefore, BSP rallies normally start at 11 am and end before sunset.
When it comes to a woman's safety and security, Mayawati makes no compromises.

There are very clear cut instructions to all party-men that any indulgence will not be tolerated. So while Mayawati's views on women might seem a bit conservative, unlike the Samajwadi Party, the BSP's supreme boss does not oppose the women reservation bill although her party wants the bill to be introduced with some modifications.
In the forth coming Lok Sabha elections she has given tickets to quite a few women candidates; although it is a different matter that most of these women candidates are just dummies of their husbands who are ministers or MPs with the BSP.
There have been occasions when chief minister's office is has been opened at mid-night and fax sent to the district magistrates for immediate implantation of a Government order. So key party functionaries expect calls from her or her office any anytime.
Sources say Mayawati herself sleeps for only 2 to three hours every night. Quite like the newsroom of a television channel several television sets have been set up in her residence.

Round the clock officers from the Chief Minister's Office keep a constant 'vigil' on news items that is being aired by the news channels. Constant reports are sent to Mayawati about any new item which concerns her, her party or her state. Dressing down This is Mayawati's favorite pastime.
Party sources say in any close-door meeting when Mayawati speaks others only listen. If you are at fault you get a severe dressing down; it does not matter if you are a minister, a respectable Member of Parliament or an MLA. Sources say she has already taken resignation letters from several of her ministers and kept them with her.
