Mayawati Barks

The bitch is out the door but she couldn't resist yapping. Just something I would like to highlight here:


She said her defeat must be blamed on the communalization of the elections by the Congress and BJP.  The former chief minister said 70% of Muslims voted for Mulayam Singh Yadav and his Samajwadi Party as a result.

Highlights from her press conference:

Congress and BJP have created trouble here. Congress for its selfish interests played the communal card by offering backward Muslims a sub-quota.  BJP opposed this, but to protect upper caste voters.  They also tried to win over Other Backward Castes (OBCs). The Muslims then panicked about the BJP returning to power. They found the Congress weak.  The reservation issue worked against the Congress.

So the Muslims rejected us along with the Congress and almost 70% of them picked the Samajwadi Party.

But what is reassuring is that opposition parties who tried to communalize the election did not manage to dent our Dalit voters who remain loyal to us.

Dalits have voted only for us.  And that is why we placed No 2.  If not for them, we would have slipped much further.

I want to from the bottom of my heart thank the Dalits through you, the media.


So according to Mayawati - the Congress and BJP tried to communalize the elections. They failed and the benefit went to Samajwadi Party. As if to validate her observation on communalization of the election – she states almost 70% of the Muslim votes were bagged by the Samajwadi Party.

Ok. But here is the interesting part. In the same press conference – she states 100% of the Dalits voted for HER! So, 70% of Muslims voting for Samajwadi Party is communalization of the elections. But 100% of Dalits voting for Mayawati is NOT??!

Just for the record – I have absolutely no interest in the election results. In my view - they are all equally incompetent, equally corrupt and equally indifferent to the general public. This is on Party level.

It doesn't matter which party gets the majority. They might have some differences in their manifestos, but we all know what happens to these manifestos / proposed policies / promises after the elections. Regardless of which party is in power – manifestos are shredded, proposed policies remain as propositions and promises are forgotten.

Drilling down to individual politician level, some are more idiotic than others.

Ek kuttiya ki teen santaan – Mulayam, Mayawati, Kaanshiram.
