[ZESTCaste] Mayawati launches Mission Cleanse-BSP

Mayawati launches Mission Cleanse-BSP

LUCKNOW: A day after ousting mafia don-turned-politician Mukhtar
Ansari and his brother Afzal from Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on charges
of involvement in criminal activities, UP chief minister Mayawati on
Saturday directed party coordinators to submit a list of leaders with
criminal records, who had promised to mend their ways but are
indulging in criminal activities, by April 20.

These leaders, party sources said, would be shown the door in next one month.

The party coordinators have also been asked to suggest names of
candidates eligible for Rajya Sabha (RS) tickets. Eleven Rajya Sabha
seats are falling vacant next month.

The decision on the two issues will be taken at the next meeting
scheduled on April 30.

The BSP leaders said that Behenji's cleansing drive was to show that
her party was different from others.

But sources said the twin motive behind the exercise is to refurbish
party's image and send a strong message among leaders — perform or
perish — before the 2012 Assembly elections.
