Mayawati threatens to resign from RS

Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Tuesday said she has made a decision to resign from Rajya Sabha after she was reportedly not allowed to speak in Parliament about the alleged atrocities on Dalits, according to ANI.

The BSP chief Tuesday tendered her resignation accusing the treasury benches of not allowing her to raise the issue. I have been dedicated my entire life to the well-being of poor, Dalits, adivasis, backwards, Muslims and other minority communities. A party leader told BusinessLine that Mayawati intends to rebuild her base by travelling across the State and raising the BSP's core issues.

She said, "I have not finished". If she resigns, the BSP will lose a Rajya Sabha member which in turn will be BJP's gain as the latter is in the minority.

"Such environment is in extreme in BJP-ruled states", the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader wrote in a letter to Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari in which she also said that she was resigning from the Upper House. He said that he backs Mayawati and that if she wants to return, his party will send her back to Rajya Sabha.

With changing narrative of Dalit politics, Mayawati has no option left but to ramp up the rhetoric against BJP.

Ms Mayawati has been chief minister of Uttar Pradesh four times. In fact, it comes across as a calculated strategy towards reviving the fortune of her party. And in all probability, her resignation is likely to resonate in Parliament for the next few days, which could also lead to a complete washout of the Monsoon Session.

Mayawati has resigned from her membership of Rajyasabha with an immediate effect on Tuesday, 18th July 2017. She may have this great urge to go in a blaze of glory.

BJP general secretary Bhupender Yadav said the people will not be misled by her.
