There is nothing that is essentially novel in the accusations made against Mayawati by the elitist media. Whether it is misusing caste in electoral strategy, manipulating people along identities, feudal arrogance of power, corruption, vulgar display of money and muscle power, gross neglect of people, extraction of political rent, or flagrant misuse of public funds for self-promotion, in short, all that is seen as evil from the moral high ground, have been the normal practice of our political class over the last six decades.
