- Mayawati announced her election issue on the 15th Parinirvan Diwas of BSP founder Kanshi Ram
- Mayawati said that even if her government is formed, development work will continue in Kashi, Mathura and Ayodhya.
- Is Mayawati doing politics of Hindu votes or is she planning to shake BJP’s electoral issues this time?
On the 15th Parinirvan Diwas of BSP founder Kanshi Ram, Mayawati enumerated her election issues. In talks, Mayawati also told the strategy of BSP for the 2022 elections. Mayawati said that even if her government is formed, development work will continue in Kashi, Mathura and Ayodhya. Many meanings are being extracted from this statement of Mayawati. Like whether Mayawati is doing politics of Hindu votes or is she intending to shake BJP’s electoral issues this time. However, one thing is certain that this time these three religious cities, especially Ayodhya, will definitely become an election issue, so whether it is power or opposition, all eyes are on them.
Mayawati said in her address, ‘After the formation of the BSP government in 2022, no plan of the BJP government will be stopped in Kashi, Ayodhya and Mathura in the state.’ He further said that the good work of any government will not be stopped by the spirit of vendetta, but the work will be done faster.
Attempts to garner Brahmin and Hindu votes
It is clear from the way the BSP is organizing the Enlightened Classes Conference to align the Brahmins across the state, that it will contest the elections this time on the basis of the Dalit Brahmin Social Engineering of 2007. The BSP had also started the first phase of its enlightened class conference from Ayodhya, while the second phase started from Mathura. While the third phase can start from Varanasi.
After the formation of BSP government in 2022, no plan of BJP government will be stopped in Kashi, Ayodhya and Mathura in the state. The good work of any government will not be stopped by the spirit of vengeance, but the work will be done faster.

Simultaneously, the Hindutva factor is also being taken into account. Recently, a glimpse of this was seen in Mayawati’s meeting in Lucknow in which conch shells were blown, chants were being done, tridents were being waved and idols of Ganesha were visible.

What is the meaning of Mayawati’s statement?
Senior journalist Siddharth Kalahans says about this, ‘The way BSP tried to woo religious symbols and Brahmins, chants were done, Mayawati seems that she should not give the impression that she is against Hindu or Hindutva. His statement about Kashi Ayodhya Mathura is for this consolidation that the Hindu population should assume that we too will follow the same path.
He further explains, ‘An attempt is also made that if the voter class you are working for is a BJP voter, then also mislead them that there is no difference between us and them. The refusal of agreement with Owaisi in UP, all these things started indicating that the BSP will follow the path of soft Hindutva.
BJP got a setback in Panchayat elections
Another reason behind BSP’s statement on Kashi, Mathura and Ayodhya is believed to be that the BJP had suffered heavy losses in the panchayat elections in these three districts. In all the three districts, it could get only 8-8 seats. On the other hand, the performance of SP and BSP was better in these seats.

Kashi-Mathura-Ayodhya BJP’s political agenda
Ayodhya-Mathura-Kashi, all three districts have always been involved in the political agenda of the BJP. BJP has been doing politics in their name only. There is a BJP government in both the country and the state. Ram temple is also being built in Ayodhya, for which BJP itself takes full credit. Varanasi is also the parliamentary constituency of PM Narendra Modi for two consecutive terms. After Ayodhya, BJP has now stepped up on Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura and Gyanwani Masjid in Varanasi.
