"She was fighting with the Chair and not with the government", he said.
As expected, Mayawati had the ready support of leader of opposition Gulam Nabi Azad who also alleged that the dalits, minorities and the poor sections of the sociiety were at the receiving end under the present dispensation. A party leader told BusinessLine that Mayawati intends to rebuild her base by travelling across the State and raising the BSP's core issues. "But when I am not allowed to speak then why should I stay here", she asked while speaking the media after coming out of the Rajya Sabha. Yadav was quoted by The Times of India as saying, "So the question is why did she do so?" The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders tried their best to ensure she does not speak. She had after all made her point by telling everyone concerned that her being a Dalit makes her the principal spokesperson on issues related to Dalits.
BSP head Mayawati has given her resignation from the Rajya Sabha.

Later in the evening, the BSP chief sent a detailed resignation letter, which ran into two pages. Mayawati walks out of the House and threatens to resign from the Rajya Sabha amid ruckus in the House. Given the composition of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly and her party's meagre strength of 19 MLAs, she didn't have a chance of getting re-elected again to Rajya Sabha. But her influence has been on the wane in recent years amid the growing influence of the BJP led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"If she has merely resigned and doesn't try to reinvent herself and the party, the resignation would mean nothing". She focussed on the Saharanpur incident, stating that the Dalits were not permitted to take out a procession on April 14. She has lost people's mandate. After the Chair allowed Mayawati to speak for three minutes, the BSP chief raised the issue of Dalit atrocities in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. It is for this reason Mayawati is angry because the legacy she inherited from Kanshi Ram seems to be slipping slowly away from her.
