She tweeted following her inoculation, “I have a strong appeal to the people of the country to properly follow the Corona rules and take full advantage of vaccination by not refusing government claims related to vaccines.”

Mayawati served four terms as UP CM between 1995 and 2012. Referred to as ‘behen ji’ (sister) by the Bahujan and other oppressed castes in India, Mayawati is recognised as a significant representation of diversity in politics.

On Friday, Mayawati weighed in on dialogue around the Nandigram ‘attack’ against Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, wishing her a speedy recovery. Calling the incident “unfortunate” on Twitter, Mayawati pressed the Election Commission to “take the matter seriously and conduct a high-level inquiry.”
