Trying to catch limelight amidst the inalienable Presidential elections, Mayawati’s intention has brought her political career to a cringe-worthy end.
Bahujan Samaj Party chief furnished her resignation letter at the Rajya Sabha for the second time. It was accepted after she met Vice President Hamid Ansari, the chairman of the Rajya Sabha.
Mayawati alleged that she was not allowed to voice her thoughts about atrocities on Dalits. She then walked out angrily out of the Rajya Sabha.
Mayawati resigned from the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday after walking out of the house angrily and alleging that she was not being allowed to speak on what she called atrocities on Dalits.
Resignation Letter by Mayawati
The first resignation letter was not formally appropriate, Rajya Sabha secretariat said. He said that explanations for resignation must not be included in the letter.
Mayawati’s critics, however, claimed that the politician is doing a political drama to win Dalits’ hearts.
Mayawati was asked to limit her speech on attacks on Dalits, as she was referring to an incident in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur. Her speech lasted for roughly three minutes. On being asked to stop her speech, Mayawati stomped out of the house.
“I simply wanted the Rajya Sabha Chair to pay attention to atrocities against the less fortunate sections of the society, especially Dalits. And as a representative, when I’m not being allowed to speak for them, I have no choice but to resign,” she said, unmoved by requests from other opposition leaders to reconsider her decision to resign.
Mayawati’s impulsive action is being deciphered as a political drama and a strategic step to strengthen her Dalit face.
The results of general elections 2013 was a brutal snap on Mayawati’s face as BSP won absolutely no seat in the same.
