Yes. UP has clearly moved on, and like so much else, could show the rest of India the way.
The ‘rajnaitik hava’ or ‘electoral wind’ sweeping this flank of Uttar Pradesh, and converting into a ‘lehar’, literally a wave, that will knock every other party out of sight by PraBuddha Bharath Pradhan, of the pro-Sarvajan i.e., entire people Ms Mayawati of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
Sarvajan leader Mayawati and her BSP has ruled the state continuously for the last five years with an iron fist, made politics sacred with highly performing best and meritorious governance with a policy of Sarvajan Hithay Sarvajan Sukhay i.e., for the welfare and happiness of the entire people distributing the wealth of the state equally among all sections of the society for equality, social transformation and economic emancipation.
Voters are ready to change the “negative politics” prevalent in the whole country for the past 65 years, and leaders should get the message that they will not get support if they do no work for progress.
Congress hand (Congress poll symbol) is soiled with black money,corruption and scams were rampant during its regimes. It did not sanction a pacakage of Rs 80000 crore meant for farmers were taken away by the elephant (BSP’s poll symbol) in Lucknow.
Accusing Congress and BJP of not being serious in bringing back blackmoney stashed away in foreign banks, BSP supremo Mayawati said it appeared both parties had deposited in those banks black money earned through corrupt means.
The third phase elections was held in 56 constituencies of 10 districts of eastern UP and Vindhyachal region in the state on 15th February.

More than 1 crore 79 lakhs electorates will decide the fate of 1,021 candidates who are in fray for the third phase elections .
Out of 11,500 polling stations s there are some sensitive areas where Central Para Military Forces have been deployed as third phase polling will cover the Maoist-infested areas like Mirzapur, Sonebhadra and Chandauli districts and the inter-state borders
Prominent candidates whose fate would be decided in this phase include BSP government ministers Nand Gopal Gupta and Indrajeet Saroj.
The state’s ruling Bahujan Samaj Party has launched an aggressive online campaign targeting their political rivals.
In a series of blogs on its website, the BSP describes Congress as “corrupt” and “deceiving.” The party, spearheaded by Chief Minister Kumar Mayawati, targets other parties, too.
One blog post says Mulayam Singh Yadav, the president of the regional Samajwadi Party “doesn’t have the ability or strength” to overthrow the BSP.
BSP is aware that the party’s online efforts itself will not translate into more votes. It totally relies on its cadres who themselves are the media of BSP. Although census data shows that around 22% of U.P.’s population lives in urban areas – only part of which have Internet or smartphone access – political experts say online campaigning alone is not enough.
