Mayawati before 2019 elections said that Modi should not become the Prime Minister of India. Mayawati served four terms as Cheif Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
She said Modi should be stopped from becoming Prime Minister or else the Muslim and other minority communities will face a lot of problems with his governance. “I will try everything to stop Modi,” she said.
Mayawati is the national president of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), which focuses on a platform of social change to improve the condition of the Bahujans or Dalits, Other Backward Classes, and religious minorities.
In 2008, Forbes added Mayawati in the 59th place on its list of the 100 most powerful women in the world. Newsweek described her as the Barack Obama of India and she also appeared in Newsweek‘s top woman achievers list in 2007.
She was born on 15 January 1956, New Delhi in a Hindu Dalit family. She pursued her B.A in 1975 at the Kalindi College and obtained her LLB from the campus law center, part of the University of Delhi. When she was preparing for IAS exam, Dalit politician Kanshi Ram visited her family in 1977. According to biographer Ajoy Bose, Kanshi Ram told her: “I can make you such a big leader one day a whole row of IAS officers will line up for your orders.” Mayawati was elected to Parliament in 1989.
