That relations between the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the media have always But last week they hit rock bottom when a mob led by BSP leaders Kanshi.
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. Once a young Brahmin minister was asked to deliver some donation chanda for the party. But the minister got late by two days. Behanji gave him a dressing down and asked him to write his resignation letter immediately.
But even those who used to be purchased at Rs. That shows it is a hijra eunuch government. But I am angry. It should have been Rs. A time will come when people should spend Rs. If money is coming from a treasury, it will be extinguished.
I am getting money from a perennial source of funds. I need only one crore rupees to win all the parliamentary seats. One day, voters will queue up to pay money to Kanshi Ram. The next day, they will que up to vote for Kanshi Ram.
Some people may get tired. Some people may be purchased. Some may become frightened. This will be a permanent feature. It will not demoralise us. I have created a method where in a given time if 10 people go awaywe will produce people of the same caliber.
Whom we dropped as deadwoodothers are trying to pick up and burn a fire. They are trying to use them against us. They had given to Babu Ji also. I am not prepared to attain what I cannot sustain.

He entered in politics like an ascetic by renouncing the comfort of hearth and home for writing a new chapter on making of the Indian Nation. Utter Pradesh Chief Minister Kumari Mayawati, his keen follower, created history by winning absolute majority in predominantly Hindu majority state of Utter Pradesh. A spate of pro-Dalit developments undergoing in Utter Pradesh would not have been otherwise possible for several decades.
The day is not far when she may even occupy the seat of power in Delhi. Sonia and Rahul Gandhi out of their smugness, sometimes just to demonstrate the sweep of her unquestionable power. Dedicated supporters of Kanshi Ram like Sadhanshu Kumar from Bihar are relatively very poor and non-entities in comparison to the immensurable strength of Utter Pradesh Chief Minister.

A school teacher who had dreamed of becoming a civil servant at the most, Mayawati fantasized her life on the roller coaster when she met Kanshi Ram in Mayawati recognized that Kanshi Ram had set a mission on a higher plane where wealth, marriage and family ties could not distract him.
His vows about not marrying and amassing wealth during his BAMCEF days reflected the singularity of his purpose and extreme dedication to the cause of Dalit upliftment. She set her eye on the empty space of his life and started filling it with her domineering presence. She presented herself as the agent of change that Kanshi Ram had most advertized. The aggressiveness she showed by venting her vitriol against Brahmins, Bania and Thakurs had convinced Kanshi Ram of her potential and eagerness to work for the party cause.
She showed her tendency to amass unlimited wealth and got embroiled in Taj Corridor corruption case. AfterKanshi Ram decided not to contest any election for the public office. He planned to improve the party functioning and make it more attached to the grassroots level.

- Mayawati: The Inside Story
The clash of personalities and personal political ambitions took the caravan in a reverse direction rather taking ahead. He started working with Republican Party of India. After near about eight years of working with Republican Party of India, he became disillusioned with its functioning.
His dream of Ambedkarite movement was completely shattered when Dadasaheb Gaikwad joined the hands with Mohan Dhariya from Congress for a petty one Lok-Sabha reserved seat and few lakh rupees. This event was the beginning of his dissociation from Republican Party. Manyawar Kanshi Ram Ji decided that he will develop a society which will work to spread the thoughts of Dr Ambedkar and other social reformers and will never sell themselves for a small gain.
He traveled all over the India along with his few activists to know why Caravan of Dr Ambedkar was brought back rather than taking ahead. During these days he never bothered about his health, food, transport and worked tirelessly to awaken the educated employees.
Organization of employees of Backward Class and Religious Minorities, after doing a necessary preparatory work within a period of five years decided to float an organisation in As a result of it, and as per the vision of Dr. Kanshi Ramji decided to take the Caravan of Dr Ambedkar ahead and he considers it as his responsibility to fulfill the same. Then he started working among educated employees and awakens them to work for the upliftment of the downtrodden. In this process he was successful to a large extent in awakening, realizing and transforming the expectations of Dr Ambedkar from educated class.
After the necessary ground work and positive response from some employees in PoonaNagpurDelhi and other places Kanshi Ramji decided to launch an organization for pay-back to society. During this time, he conducted several cadre camps, meetings, seminars in different parts of the country to awaken the employees. Basically it has been the organization aimed to build up the non-political roots for the success of Dr.
Ambedkar's political vision and action. BAMCEF's typical feature was that it was an organization of the employees, by the employees but not for the welfare of the employees.
The first concept given by Kanshi Ram Ji was "people who should succeed politically must have strong non-political roots" He witnessed the failure of Ambedkarite movement in MaharashtraKanshi Ramji had realized that the people whose non-political roots were not strong were bound to fail politically. They can have their political party, but they cannot succeed politically. BAMCEF created a new missionary political conscience among the backward caste educated employees and also established a national network for further Kanshi Ram's movement.
After spending 20 yrs of his young age Kanshi Ramji realized that merely organizing employees would not be enough to fulfill the dreams of Dr Ambedkar.
