The Bahujan Samaj Party believes that the Congress has made Meira Kumar the Lok Sabha Speaker just to keep her away from her own people, and also that, in this position, she can do nothing for the welfare of her community. 

The BSP’s position on Kumar’s elevation to the Speaker’s office has been spelled out for the first time in a booklet entitled “Dalit Ki Beti Pradhan Mantri Kyon Nahin Ban Payee? Jara Sochiye!” which BSP president and UP Chief Minister Mayawati distributed to party leaders from various states on Saturday. 

The booklet accuses the BJP and Congress of appointing Dalits to high offices, like those of the President, Vice-President, Speaker, Deputy Speaker and Governor, only to alienate the people of the Dalit community from the BSP. “Meira Kumar has been made Speaker of the Lok Sabha in order to keep her away from her own people. In our country, the posts of President, Vice-President, Governor and Speaker are such that the people of the Dalit communityoccupying them can do no good to the people of their own community,” says the booklet.
