Description

This revised edition of Behenji, first published in 2008, examines Mayawati’s record as chief minister since 2007. It pinpoints the reasons behind the BSP’s poor performance in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, her return to the Dalit agenda prior to the 2012 assembly elections, as well as its surprising results. Also scrutinized are Mayawati’s performance as a dalit leader and administrator, besides the rampant corruption and failure of her social engineering project during these years.

Though no longer likely to become prime minister, the author sees Mayawati playing a pivotal role in UP, and, indeed, Indian politics post the 2014 elections.

inspiring but incomplete treatise

book presents a fair treatise of bhenji's journey from rags to riches.. it also separates the dalit movement ignited by kanshi ram & associates from mayawati's later political maneuvering to survive in complex political world ...
the book however was missing the personal views of mayawati and kanshi ram regarding various socio politico issues... which could have satisfied the appetite of reader !!
A delightful read and perhaps most complete treatise of Behnji till now..grt work

Ajoy Bose's magnum opus

This is Ajoy Bose's magnum opus!!
His choice of topic for this book is thrilling.

Mayawati may have lost UP elections but she will be remembered through her statues and if these statues are destroyed, she will be remembered through Ajoy Bose's magnum opus in History of India.
