BSP supremo Mayawati resigns from Rajya Sabha

  • 18 Bills are listed for passage in Monsoon session

Mayawati resigned from Rajya Sabha as MP hours after she threatened to quit for restricting her impromptu speech on anti-Dalit violence in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh in the ongoing Monsoon session of Parliament. I have been dedicated my entire life to the well-being of poor, Dalits, adivasis, backwards, Muslims and other minority communities.

The resignation of BSP president Mayawati from Rajya Sabha is less about urgency of Dalit issues being addressed in the Parliament and more about marginalisation of her party in the Hindi heartland of the country. "I would like to ask her not try to create unrest in the peaceful state".

"I was not allowed to speak".

During her speech, she alleged that Dalits were being targeted and sought attention of the House on the issue.

In the wake of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati resigning as member of the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav in the evening came out in support of the BSP supremo.

One of India's top female politicians and Dalit (formerly untouchable) icon has quit her parliamentary seat.

Mayawati's current term would have ended in April next year and her party, with just 18 MLAs in the UP Assembly, is not in a position to send her to Rajya Sabha. He said, "Mayawati ji has not contributed for the development of Uttar Pradesh". She got the support of the Opposition parties. "I am not being heard and am not allowed to speak", she added. "People will not be misled".

Flanked by party loyalists, she reached the Rajya Sabha secretary general Shamsher Shariff's office at around 5pm and handed over her resignation letter.

"If she has merely resigned and doesn't try to reinvent herself and the party, the resignation would mean nothing". She may have this great urge to go in a blaze of glory. Siddiqui, however, retorted that she was selling seats for money, a charge raised against her by many people who left her fold in the immediate past.
