Satish Mishra sidelined by Mayawati at Lucknow rally
Bahujan Samaj Party general secretary and Rajya Sabha MP Satish
Chandra Mishra was on Monday virtually sidelined from the party's
political and organisational affairs when he was named the chairman of
its All-India Legal Cell.
He is now the chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Advisory Council.
Mr. Mishra, who was instrumental in enlisting the support of the
Brahmins for Chief Minister Mayawati and was one of the architects of
the successful social engineering experiment in Uttar Pradesh, was
also divested of that responsibility.
Now the onus of enlisting Brahmin support for the ruling party will be
on Energy Minister Ramveer Upadhyaya, Gopal Narain Mishra and O.P.
These announcements, including the formation of the BSP's legal cell,
were made by Chief Minister Mayawati at her mammoth rally here to
commemorate the silver jubilee of the party's existence and the birth
anniversary of its founder Kanshi Ram. Ms. Mayawati made it clear that
she had not drawn a 'Lakshman Rekha' for Mr. Mishra which barred him
from participating in organisational affairs.
"He can go anywhere in the country, but only after he is free from
legal matters", the Chief Minister said.
"Legal matters of the party would be a priority for Mr. Mishra and he
would devote full time to these," she added.
The Chief Minister said she had made this public announcement to
dispel doubts and rumours that Mr. Mishra had been cut down to size.
She lauded his efforts to strengthen the party.
Ms. Mayawati said she had been forewarned by her mentor Kanshi Ram
that the BSP might have to face legal hassles in future, which is why
the all-India legal cell has been constituted.
Apart from reconstituting the Brahmin 'bhaichara' (brotherhood) core
committee, the BSP president named Ministers Jaiveer Singh and Badshah
Singh and alleged mafia-don-turned politician Dhananjay Singh to
enlist the support of the Thakurs.
