Mayawati threatens to resign from RS, BJP objects to her conduct
External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj speaks in the Rajya Sabha in New Delhi

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders demanded that Mayawati should apologise for her "threatening" comments in Parliament. I have been dedicated my entire life to the well-being of poor, Dalits, adivasis, backwards, Muslims and other minority communities. One can agree or disagree with the narrative but one thing was evident that in the initial phase Mayawati was absent and a Dalit organisation named Bhim Army led by a lawyer-turned-activist Chandrashekhar hijacked the opposition space and became the dominant voice speaking for Dalits during that incident.
Deputy chairperson of the Rajya Sabha, P.J. Kurien, allowed Ms. Mayawati to speak first but cautioned her against breaching the three-minute time slot allocated to her. "I will come back and give my resignation", she said and walked out of the House.
Mayawati's current term would have ended in April next year and her party, with just 18 MLAs in the UP Assembly, is not in a position to send her to Rajya Sabha. Election next week of a Dalit President who hails from Uttar Pradesh will dwarf her stature. "She was not raising any issues related to the oppressed class and instead only indulging in petty politics", said Naqvi.
The Prime Minister also called on all the parties to support the war against corruption, which has been initiated by the government. She walked out from the Rajya Sabha and in her support, MPs of Congress and TMC also staged a walkout.
Political circles are agog with speculations about the possibility of Mayawati challenging chief minister, Aditya Nath Yogi in his forte Gorakhpur once he resigns from his Lok Sabha seat Gorakhpur and contests from an Assembly constituency. BJP spokesperson and Dalit leader Bizay Sonkar Shastri dismissed her resignation as mere "nautanki". By resigning now, she can tell them that by doing so she upheld their pride and Parliament was not a fit place for her. "It is best if she just concentrates on UP to recover lost ground and that alone would be enough to catapult her into a position of national prominence". It is for this reason Mayawati is angry because the legacy she inherited from Kanshi Ram seems to be slipping slowly away from her.
"I tried to persuade her against resigning, but I think she had already made up her mind", he said.
