Party Name is "Bahujan Samaj Party", which has been formed by Kanshi Ram for the backward classes of the society. For the backward classes to bring up their social and economical status? Lol. Now it is being led by a lady called "Mayawati". She started her Maya on the party and the people ofr so many years, but today's felicitation incident might have rocked the BSP party members and mayawati but definitely it shocked the country.
Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh wryly said Mayawati is "no more a Dalit ke beti but Daulat ke beti"(no more a daughter of Dalit but a moneyed daughter), referring to the garland of 1,000 rupee currency notes presented to her.(india today)
On the 76th birthday anniversary of Lat. Kanshi Ram (founder of BSP), the BSP took a public rally and in that rally to everyone's surprise, her party leaders felicitated her with a garland that is made of 1,000 rupee notes. If you see the Giant size of that garland, then sure you can guess the worth of it.
According to Indiatoday "Mayawati has been in controversy in the past for collecting public donations on her birthdays. An enthusiastic BSP worker from Kanpur had gifted a plot on the moon on her birthday this year. The BSP supremo’s diamond jewellery sets and her statues carrying a purse have been hot topics of discussion in political circles. But Monday’s extravaganza to celebrate 25 years of BSP’s existence and 76th birth anniversary of founder Kanshi Ram set a new bar."
After the BSP supremo came in the eye of a fresh controversy, Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh wryly said Mayawati is "no more a Dalit ke beti but Daulat ke beti"(no more a daughter of Dalit but a moneyed daughter), referring to the garland of 1,000 rupee currency notes presented to her.
"Mayawati is no longer the woman representing the common man. She is playing in lakhs and crores (of rupees)," he said.
"We appeal to the government to take cognizance of Mayawati's rally and the garland presented to her. It should be inquired into," he added. [More]
