Maya hi Maya!

4 May

“Lets have someone (as our PM) who knows economics, understands foreign trade, globalisation and most importantly can figure out means of growing wealth, redistributing it to make India a richer country irrespective of class, caste, community etc, AN OBAMA KIND” insists my husband.

I say – “Mayawati – fits the bill”. My husband gives me that Zoozoo type of look :@. Oh ho, I am not joking. 

The News Week has compared the ‘Iron Lady’ to Obama. After all, She is young like him, from an opressed community. And ….  lets rest it at that.

Not withstanding this report, lets take a sneak peek at her manifesto- to see why she perfectly fits in.

She is the perfect candidate – For her focus on education – Academics was never her strength, so she wants to make sure that the next gen has it for sure ! Proof below

1 – provide scholarship to the poor children from the Other Backward
Classes (OBCs) and religious minorities, particularlyMuslims.

2 – send students of the newly established Gautam Buddha University in Gautam Buddha Nagar district (Great Noida) at government expense to Europe or other foreign countries for higher education. Separate provision of 25 per cent fund has been made for the first time in the budget for SC/ST

Though I fail to understand why this system can’t be merit based by SEC category. Her efforts have been most visible in words, the execution though of any kind of political agenda is deferred and non – accountable. The focus on specific castes / religions very well makes each of us never forget our origins, keeping us well grounded into reality. 

Not withstanding the fact that most of her close circle in this election belong to various upper castes, she has maintained the following on her manifesto

3- securing the benefit of “Reservation” for the Scheduled Castes/Tribes and Other backward Classes in the areas like the judiciary, council of ministers, Rajya Sabha, Legislative Council and the private sector

“Congress party and BJP and their allies have been trying to end reservation gradually by giving to the Private Sector on a large scale those “government departments” and “institutions” in the Centre and all the states of the country”

Imagine the kind of harm that might happen, if the state starts working with  private institutions with a motto of profitability. Uh oh, shameful!! 

Our tax money is meant to redistribute wealth, and what better way to induce this through electing some uneducated bureaucrats (who have no other means of earning) and promote affrimative action.  Infact why spare the private companies from such generosity?

4. Create in the entire country an atmosphere free from “injustice, crime and fear” by establishing a “Rule of Law by Lawful Means” – As has been already established in the state of Uttar Pradesh in the past decade.

Some of her diktats will include

a. No Organised Retail – Kirana stores ensure redistribution of wealth.(Remember her fallout with some top brass reliable retail companies)

b.  Complete security: Separate Mafia Raj for each state to counter terrorism

c.  Dalits will spearhead every company

d. Capitalism makes the poor poorer, therefore we will become a communist country. Most foreign companies promote capitalism, therefore those cannot enter the country. Money of the country should remain in , thus, companies will not be allowed to expand beyond the borders.

e.  She will create wealth(Social and Personal). Period.

For any further proof of her eligibility refer to this

    Maya is a weighty issue… 😛 maybe she could start our country’s good times by redistributing her wealth, which was contributed by her supporters anyway…

    With a few corrections…
    Is it possible that we have an aversion to Maya becoming the PM primarily because she is quite non-presentable? Perhaps it would be quite downmarket if a woman with a garish sartorial sense, flaunting chintzy jewellery makes it to the helm of affairs. ‘She can’t be my PM’ is the main thought on the minds of sophisticated, next-gen, urban youth of India. ‘I would hate to be called the citizen of a country whose PM is so tawdry’. Is that the primary thought? She is so non-classy, after all. I think this is the top of the mind reason for most of us whether we admit to it or not. Otherwise, all the points mentioned in this post and the perils associated with Maya are more or less true for all contenders to the big post. Who is clean here? ‘Iss hamaam mein sab nange hai…’ goes the popular Hindi adage about our politicians. All resort to populist means. If Maya beats the SC/ST trumpet, Congress has always tried to appease the Muslims and BJP’s love for playing to the Hindu gallery is not hidden from anybody. Why single out Maya as an unsuitable candidate other than the reasons mentioned by me above? In a recent poll by a national daily, a majority of youngsters voted for Rahul Gandhi as their PM. Why? What is the track record of the guy? Where does he rank on the scale of meritocracy? But don’t forget that he is Uber Cool who doesn’t mind eating with the down-trodden when cameras are flashing. So, we love him. Maya eating with the same family would never hit the headlines. She was born to be with those people. I am not a Maya supporter or Rahul opposer. But I would say that don’t write off Behenji for reasons that are essential to survive in the Indian polity. She has come a long way and has given the well-established a run for their money. She is no more the under dog. She is leading from the front. Her desire to be a PM is not obscured in vague terms. Watch out for the lady!

      Bang on Geetika…. I want a PM with big credentials, charming personality et al….. A representative of MY country, who speaks and people listen … brings a new dimension to India – chic and upmarket… can think at par with global leaders… I have had my patience tested with Mulayams and Mayas… No one is clean… yet if BSP was to have an OBAMA – ill vote for BSP… i do think the Arun Shouries and Manmohans make for better leaders, though when compared to Maya, might falter for the same reasons(corruption, communism etc)… yet my vote goes to them…. is all I can say!

    ohh aakriti i thinku have forgot taj corridor case and PWD engineer named M K Gupta was killed after he reportedly refused to pay money demanded by a BSP MLA Shekhar Tiwari for Mayawati’s birthday celebrations and many scandals like that…………..
    ohh she is doing good to uplift SC/ST but only SC/ST makes the whole India.Wt abt other people??If she becomes the PM then SC/ST,OBC will make to 90% reservations and somebody has to come to uplift General middle class.
