Lucknow: Mayawati’s strategy( Akash Anand) to bring Brahmins together in every district through Prabuddha Sammelan by Bahujan Samaj Party, ahead of Satishchandra Mishra in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2022, has been unsuccessful.
The biggest thing is his core voter, who is said that he cannot go anywhere other than BSP, has given a big blow in the 2022 UP elections. The BSP has not got a single seat in Agra, which is a Dalit stronghold. On the other hand, Mayawati got very few votes in Dalit-dominated seats.
Now the BSP supremo (Akash Anand) has made up her mind to return completely to her core voter
Now the BSP supremo has made up her mind to return completely to her core voter and has started it by making her nephew Akash Anand the national coordinator. Lok Sabha elections are to be held in 2024. At the same time, Mayawati did not make a big bet by putting forward the young face. Mayawati has hit many targets with one arrow.
The Bahujan Samaj Party, which once single-handedly won power in UP, was reduced to just one seat this time. The party is passing through its worst phase in the last 10 years. During this, many veteran leaders left together. Vote percentage also kept declining.
The core voters who were always supportive also started trusting other parties. In such a situation, BSP chief Mayawati has made a big plan to give new strength to the party. He has made his nephew Akash Anand the national coordinator of the party. Not only this, steps have also been taken towards many big strategic changes.
What did Mayawati say?
In the meeting, Mayawati said, ‘This is not the time to be discouraged, but to fight unitedly. To keep BJP out of power, Muslims supported the SP and they failed. Now Muslims have also understood that only BSP can defeat BJP. So instead of leaving the Muslims alone, now they have to take them along.
Mayawati has made her nephew, Akash Anand, the National Coordinator, giving a big responsibility. It is clear that now the exercise of handing over the party to the youth has started.
Three new in-charges have been made who will report directly to Akash Anand. This responsibility has been given to Munkad Ali, Rajkumar Gautam and Dr. Vijay Pratap.
All the units of BSP have been dissolved. Except the state president of the BSP and the Speakers of the assembly, everyone else has been removed from the post.
Shah Alam alias Guddu Jamali, who left the BSP, was brought back to the party and made him a candidate for the Lok Sabha by-election from Azamgarh.
A report has been sought from all the responsible office bearers of the organization about the reasons for losing the election.
BSP got 13% votes in 2022 UP elections
If we talk about Dalit voters in Uttar Pradesh, then it is about 22 percent. Despite having such a percentage of Dalit voters, the BSP got only 13 percent votes this time, which is the lowest vote share ever since 1993.
Mayawati has given a clear message to her nephew that she is the Dalit messiah. By taking Anand forward, he has tried to reach out to the youth and Dalit voters.
The BSP definitely captured power in 20079 Akash Anand
The BSP definitely captured power in 2007 by adding Brahmins and Muslims, but the party also suffered its loss. This has been the reason why the BSP’s vote share fell to 10 per cent in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Not a single MP of the party could register victory in 80 Lok Sabha seats, while in some seats, MPs could win with the help of Dalit votes. At the same time, in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, BSP got the benefit of alliance with SP and the party was successful in winning 10 seats, but this time also the vote share of BSP did not increase.
Once again the dream of coming to power in UP with the help of Brahmins and Muslims did not come true.
Mayawati once again dreamed of coming to power in UP with Brahmins and Muslims and organized an enlightened class conference in every district of the state, but to no avail, while its core voter .
Dalit got away from it. Recently, the BSP did not get a single seat in Agra, a stronghold of Dalits. The BSP had to face defeat in the reserved seats. Not only this, he got less votes than expected.
Dalits will not go anywhere because of Mayawati’s BSP.
Mayawati’s thinking of leaving the BSP for Dalits
Mayawati’s thinking of leaving the BSP for Dalits and not going anywhere in the UP elections of 2022 became heavy and the party suffered heavy losses. Many of the party’s candidates were even forfeited their deposits.
Mayawati understood this now. In view of this, he has made a move by moving the nephew forward.
What will be the helm of the sinking BSP called Anand?
Akash Anand’s political career started from the 2017 UP assembly elections. When Mayawati launched him from a rally in Saharanpur. In 2017, Anand was seen on stage in Mayawati-Akhilesh’s joint rallies.
Now the question arises whether Akash Anand can be successful in wooing the Dalit youth voters for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. However, so far Akash Anand alone has not held any rally in UP. Now that Mayawati has made him the National Coordinator, it may be that he should openly bat on the pitch of politics. It remains to be seen whether Akash Anand can silence the opposition parties with his speech style.
Akash Anand MBA from London, young face, now the examination will be held in the Lok Sabha elections
Akash Anand is the son of Mayawati’s brother Anand Kumar. Akash Anand has studied MBA from a college in London. Anand had associated BSP with social engineering in 2019 and the presence of BSP started appearing on Twitter, Facebook. Let us tell you that Mayawati had made Anand a star campaigner in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Almost 2 years into the 2024 Lok Sabha elections
