Before the UP election, Maya is seeking a ban on pre-poll surveys

Baawjan Samaj (BSP) Mayawati Party leader on Saturday reiterated her call for Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, for her mentor and BSP founder Kanshi Ram even as she sought a ban on pre-poll polls before the UP assembly election to be held early. next year.

He said he will write to the Election Commission demanding that polls by media organizations and other agencies be banned six months before any election so that the polls in the particular state are not influenced by it.

Addressing BSP cadres in Lucknow on the occasion of Kanshi Ram’s 15th birthday in a memorial erected in his memory, Mayawati said “I bow my head to Kanshi Ram ji this time.”

He cited the cause of pre-vote polls that predicted losses for Trinamool Congress Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal assembly election. “Before the polls, Mamata Banerjee was shown dragging but when the results came in, she won by an overwhelming majority and the hopes of those who dreamed of gaining power were shattered,” he said.

Accusing some agencies of being the “dhandha” (business) of the pre-poll survey, Mayawati said that pre-poll surveys need to be banned to prevent this. In the recent past Mayawati has also shown her dissatisfaction in pre-poll polls predicting gains for BJP and claimed she was part of a conspiracy to underplay her party’s impact ahead of the 2022 UP opinion polls.

Claiming that people in UP have made up their mind to undo the BJP, Mayawati claimed that the ruling party governments in the middle and UP are misusing official machinery for electoral gains.

“I would appeal to people not to waste their vote on BJP,” he said. He also claimed that the BJP could give things a communal twist before the 2022 UP polls. “It is well known that BJP is eventually turning to Hindu-Muslim spin and seeking an advantage through polarization,” he said urging the cadres to be wary of such things.

Former BJP ally, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) and Dalit Bhim Army organization led by Chandrashekhar Azad are active ahead of the polls. The head of SBSP, Om Prakash Rajbhar, has claimed that Azad would be part of its Bhagidari Sankalp Morcha, an organization made up of various smaller caste-based parties.

Without naming any less specific party, Mayawati also warned the cadres against them. “Many smaller parties or organizations there want to contest elections independently or together. But their main aim is not to win elections but to help the ruling party sensibly, ”he claimed.

He also alleged that before the opinion polls, the BJP government had begun to turn to caste politics and quoted a recent foundation-stone laying function of a university in the name of a Jat community leader and the unveiling of a statue of a Gurjar community leader in UP.
