Elections for Legislative assembly having 403 members took place during Feb-Mar 2012.
Ms Mayavati, Supremo of Bahujan Samaj Paksha (BSP) had been governing the state prior to election. She won the earlier election through social engineering. This had been a great trend and should have succeeded for development of state and the nation. However, she didn't try for making a cohesive society. She still followed the old method of dividing society in groups, offering things (this is a new method of corruption originated in Tamil Nadu), coming to power and ruling for self prosperity. Janata (Citizens) don't even think that whatever is offered is from State exchequer meaning their own money and not money of people who offer it. This is definitely swindling of public money. Money otherwise used for development of public is offered to buy votes. In addition Ms Mayawati tried to divide state in to 4 states. What could be advantage to the public? Yes, there will be advantage for politicians. This would result in 3 more Chief Ministers and many more ministers. Those who wish to be ministers would be benefited but not the common man. Janata proved her wrong.
