Citing the latest development, it seems that BSP supremo and the Chief Minister of the state - Mayawati stepped forward towards her victory in the upcoming assembly election in 2012.
Following voice vote in the assembly on the very first day of its Winter Session 2011, the motion to divide the state into four different parts has been passed. Later the resolution would be sent to the Union Cabinet for clearance.
However, the final decision would be taken by the Parliament as the final motion should get 2/3rd majority in both the Houses (Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha) to get passed.
Dismissing all criticism of the opposition parties, Mayawati said, "Wrong to say that plan to divide UP a political gimmick. This is not a political move by BSP."
"The opposition criticism of BSP govt is a politically motivated and attempt to weaken BSP. UP assembly has fulfilled its duty in regards to splitting of UP for the benefit of the state," asserted Mayawati.
Showing full confidence on the aam-admi of Uttar Pradesh, the CM also claimed, "the people of UP will reply back to the central govt and opposition parties in the coming assembly elections."
Here it can be mentioned that splitting UP into four parts would help the CM most as her core constituency - Dalits - are evenly spread throughout the state.
