Wikileaks calls Mayawati "a first rate egomaniac"

By Anita
Lucknow, Sept 5: The Wikileaks bomb continues to shower damages within the Indian political circles, with the latest victim being Uttar pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati. The leaked diplomatic cables revealed how the US considered UP as a crucial Indian state but did not seem to have high regards for its CM. The cables have described Mayawati as a “a first rate egomaniac" who runs the state “like a fiefdom", and acts on “her eccentricities, whims and insecurities".

Mayawati's lavish celebrations on Jan 15 also finds mention in the US cables dated Jan 16, 2009 that calls the gusto “her favorite party of the year when the sycophantic fealty of BSP party members reaches its apex".

Maya's eccentricities also gets noted under the title “Eccentric Paranoia" with the cable stating, "Mayawati"s full majority victory in May 2007 UP state Assembly elections left her beholden to no one and has allowed her to act on her eccentricities, whims and insecurities. When she needed new sandals, her private jet flew empty to Mumbai to retrieve her preferred brand."

Cables dated Mar 17, 2009, before the Lok Sabha elections quotes the poll officer as saying, “Mayawati deeply wants to become prime minister and with thirty plus seats, she will be a player at the center. With fifty seats (an outside possibility), the unpredictable chief minister could be a major player. Mayawati could be a powerbroker and perhaps even a king (or queen) maker."

A cable also states claims made by a poloff who said that a minister was forced to do sit-ups as a punishment for not seeking her permission to call on UP"s Governor. The poloff also added, "Mayawati is obsessed with becoming Prime Minister and the BSP will spend huge sums in next year"s national polls."
