Mayawati reposes faith in family, still dejected by election results

Mayawati, sources said, would target 40 coordinators and zonal coordinators in Uttar Pradesh. They will be axed next.

Lucknow: In Uttar Pradesh’s capital, Lucknow, a crucial meeting of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) was held on Sunday, in which several important changes were made in the organisation. Anand Kumar, brother of BSP head Mayawati, has once again been made the national vice president of the party. Mayawati’s nephew Akash Anand has been given the responsibility of the national coordinator of the party.

At the national level, two coordinators have been appointed at the national level. Current national vice president Ramji Gautam will now take the charge of the national coordinator.

Danish Ali has been made the leader of the BSP in the Lok Sabha. Shyam Singh Yadav, MP from Jaunpur, will be the deputy leader of the BSP in the Lok Sabha. Senior party leader Satish Chandra Mishra will be the leader of the BSP in the Rajya Sabha.

At the Sunday meeting, all the BSP leaders were invited. In the meeting with the leaders, party chief Mayawati took the decision on these posts.

Sources say Mayawati is still morose about the Lok Sabha election results. She made these reshuffles in her party with the belief that the new appointees would be capable of rejuvenating the BSP in electoral politics.

In the early days of June, taking a major action in a meeting in Delhi, Mayawati had terminated the party leaders who were in charge of the BSP’s Lok Sabha election performance in six States. The BSP presidents of three States had been ousted from their post.

Mayawati, sources said, would target 40 coordinators and zonal coordinators in Uttar Pradesh. They will be axed next.

Significantly, the graph of the BSP is continuously falling from since the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election of 2012. The condition was such that in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, the BSP could not secure even one seat.

After this, the BSP won just 19 seats in the 2017 Assembly election. Despite the alliance with the SP in the Lok Sabha election this time, the BSP could win just 10 seats.

The BSP has now got into a purging mode against those who indulged in ‘anti-party activities’ during the Lok Sabha election. Party chief Mayawati has started taking action against such people.
