Like so many former getting wormed up under sizzling sun, she perhaps wants that with his mentor Kanshiram and dead elephant.

Chief Minister’s job is take care the welfare of the people. Building Statue is not in her job description. She should be thrown into jail.

The answer is Dalit pride. Dalits have been exploited for thousand of years. Her endeavor is to correct the historical injustice.

This sounds plausible if Mayawati had not included herself and her family members in the life and king size monuments. This whole extravagant exercise is not only to garner votes in the name of Dalit pride. This is Mayawati’s way of leaving behind a legacy of Dalit ki beti . Ambedkar had constitution even when he was a failure in politics of independent India. . Will Mayawati’s legacy remain in these statues?

Hasn’t she done enough already like have millions of rupees pinned to her saree in a cutout ?
Shame on her, her supporters and the passive Indian population and media that such things happen openly in this so called democracy which is having one of the highest growth rates in the world. I predict that very soon India will implode and collapse before it can join the ranks of the truly advanced nations of the world. With India, unlike the autocratic Middle East, the fault lies not just with the government but with the apathetic and cowardly people.
