While 9 MPs of Samajwadi Party restrained from voting , 15 MPs of Bahujan Samaj Party voted in favour of the Foreign Direct Investment in Retail debate in the Rajya Sabha,giving the UPA govt a clear win over opposition which was against FDI in retail! It was again BSP Supremo ,Mayawati and SP Supremo,Mulayam Singh,(by keeping away from voting) who helped the govt secure Parliament approval on FDI in retail.
BSP workers demonstrated protest against Akhilesh Yadav for renaming Ambedker Green Belt in Vyom Khand of Gomti Nagar,Lucknow to Janeshwar Mishra Park .
SP government on the contrary blamed the previous BSP government leaders of grabbing Government land for personal benefit , in the name of park and also declared it is no way going to bow down to protests .
Threee youth workers of a less known political group ‘Nav Nirman Sena of UP were detained by cops for hammering off the head and hands of one of the statues of Mayawati following which BSP leaders demonstrated protests at many places in the state. The State Government however, quickly responded by promising immediate replacement of the vandalized statue of BSP supremo and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister – Mayawati !
Mayawati , the former CM of UP,more known for being garlanded with real currency notes , disproportionate wealth cases(which the Supreme Court dismissed recently) and for using state’s money to make memorial parks and statues of Dalit leaders,saints,elephants(her political party’s symbol) and amazingly her own statues as well, had asked her supporters to keep calm when the incident occurred !
The judges said that the CBI was not justified in filing the case against Mayawati and pointed the case as illegal and without jurisdiction. In 2002, the Supreme Court had ordered the CBI to investigate the Taj Corridor case where she was accused of swindling money meant for development of Taj and surrounding areas and later cancelled on environmental grounds. While the CBI filed a case accusing her of misusing her post as CM for monetary gain, the Income Tax department ruled in her favour and the Delhi High Court too! Mayawati’s declared assets in 2003 Rs 1 crore which increased to 50 crores in 2007 and 200 crores in 2012. Mayawati expressed the money has been donated to her by workers of her party!
Daughter of a poor farmer becomes a Chief Minister, is understandable but becomes owner of Crores of Rupees and still claims she is not corrupt, is not understandable! How much does a Chief Minister get as a monthly remuneration ?
🙂 Just no more words !

Akhilesh Yadav’s simplicity-drops 32 cars in his fleet and closed specialized hospital within his official residence!
The new Chief Minister of U.P., Akhilesh Yadav has issued orders to cut down the cars in his fleet from 40 to just 8 and also ordered the specialised hospital formed on orders of Mayawati(in 2008) and costs the state exchequer Rs. 75 lakh per annum. The hospital had a medical superintendent, 22 pharmacists, a dozen nurses, 4 hi-tech ambulances and specialist doctors on 24×7 dutyoperating in official residence of CM.
Akhilesh has ordered the doctors and nurses to be sent to hospitals where they are needed more. Akhilesh has done away with many security measures taken by former CM Maywati.
Akhilesh’s move so far worth applauding but this is just the beginning and only the passing by time would let us know if all these efforts from youngest CM of Uttar Pradesh are really worth praising.
