Haati nahin Ganesh hai. Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh hai

Now time has come to sit and take Mayawati seriousely as results are pouring out its new chapter in history of UP which mostly consist of upper cast voters and OBC has turned whole heartedly for Mayawati's BSP.As DNA report and explore it beautifully:
"Mayawati's strategy of sewing up a rainbow coalition, particularly wooing Brahmins and other upper castes, appeared to have paid rich dividends to BSP in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, results of which were out on Friday.

In her strategy that is seen by political observers as one of the biggest attempts at social engineering in recent years, the BSP supremo shed her image as only a dalit leader and and aligned with upper castes, against whom her party had in the past carried out a consistent campaign.

Casting aside her 'anti-Manuvadi' stance, her pet theme against upper castes, Mayawati ensured substantial number of tickets to Brahmins and also others while keeping her dalit votebank intact.

This was especially remarkable as it was the first election for the BSP, after the death of party founder Kanshi Ram, who was instrumental in bringing the party to power in alliance with the SP in 1993.

That experiment was significant in that Kanshi Ram who was the architect of the SP-BSP tie-up, ensured defeat of an aggressive BJP one year after the demolition of the Babri Masjid.

The BSP which earlier used to proclaim "tilak, taraju aur talwar, maro unko jhoote char" (beat up Brahmins, Vaishyas and Kshatriyas) changed the tune completely.

The new slogan "Haati nahin Ganesh hai. Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh hai" (it is not elephant but Lord Ganesh, symbolising all gods and communities) caught the attention of upper caste, a sizeable section of which seemed to have gone in her favour. "
